David Duchovny is Up For Reopening 'The X-Files'


Fox revealed just last week that there have been discussions about a return to The X-Files, on a limited basis, an idea that sounds just fine to star David Duchovny.

"I'm assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now," he told USA Today. "We'll see what form, how many [episodes]. Certainly I can't nor would I be interested in doing a full season. It will be in some kind of limited form. We're all old, we don't have the energy for a full season."

Duchovny played FBI Agent Fox Mulder in all nine seasons of the sci-fi drama -- although he appeared only intermittently in the final two -- and in the 1998 film The X-Files and its 2008 sequel The X-Files: I Want to Believe.


He's long discussed reuniting with co-star Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter for more X-Files, saying in 2013, “We always want to [return to The X-Files]. Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson and I, we’re always on board. You want to write Fox and get ‘em going. You could wheel me out. I’ll play Fox Mulder forever.”
