IDW has been cranking out a wildly popular comic book series for some time now, thrusting the supernatural mystery hunting FBI agents we know and love back into the spotlight. Gillian Anderson has even hit the floor of San Diego Comic-Con to greet fans and assure us she is still..100%..completely awesome (and still hot). With the success of Fox's 24 mini-series and genre subjects dominating the television landscape, there is no better time to bring back a series that probably influenced much of what we love to watch today.
“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. “The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”
