The truth is still out there! When will The X Files return?

Mulder and Scully

A year after The X Files finished on a cliffhanger, fans are still waiting to find out if FBI Agents Mulder and Scully have survived that shock ending!

When The X Files revival aired on Channel 5 last year, the series ended on a cliffhanger. Unfortunately fans wanting to know if FBI Agents Mulder and Scully have survived a deadly virus and the arrival of a menacing spacecraft will have to wait a while longer to find out...

Although talks are underway with series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter to bring The X Files back for another run, unfortunately it doesn't look like the sci-fi series will go back into production again this year.

"It's not for lack of trying," says a show spokesperson. “It’s just very difficult for them to easily find the time to do this. Gillian lives in London, she has young children. Coming to Vancouver for three or four months of filming is not easy for her, particularly when she has other work commitments. David can be available, and then something big can come along for him. So it’s not easy to find time. We would love to do it again, and I believe there will be a time when it happens."

In the meantime, David can soon be seen reprising his role of transgender FBI Agent Denise Bryson in the return of the cult 90s drama, Twin Peaks. And Gillian has been out and about promoting her new book, We: A Manifesto For Women Everywhere.
