David Duchovny certainly isn’t the only one open to a potential limited return to “The X-Files.” “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, who was a write and producer on the influential sci-fi drama, says he’d jump at the chance to be involved with the revival.
“I would love to be involved,” he told The X-Files Lexicon. “I don’t know with my current schedule, if I necessarily could be involved, but I got to tell you. I hope that is the case, and it works out that there more ‘X-Files’ in the offing because even if I weren’t involved, I can tell you as a fan, I’d be right there with my Dr. Pepper and my big bowl of popcorn, and the lights dimmed down low. I think ‘The X-Files’ is going to live forever. I think it’s a wonderful show, I am more proud that I can even express that I was a part of it, that I was a fan before I was ever a part of it, and I knew it was something special before I was ever involved in it.”
Gilligan, who’s busy with his “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” and the upcoming police drama “Battle Creek,” received his big break in 1995 on “The X-Files,” eventually writing 30 episodes of the series and producing dozens more. He also co-created the short-lived spinoff “The Lone Gunmen.”
“If I knew I could do it, I would love to be a part of it,” he said of the possible revival, “but even if I am not, you can know for a fact that I’ll be watching every episode and rooting them on, and being very much the fan boy that I started, in regards to ‘The X-Files.'”
