An X-pectation that Just Became Reality

Every die-hard fan of The X-Files just went into a wild frenzy last week when Fox TV network formally announced the show’s revival. I am one of the millions of fans who jumped with joy after learning that The X-Files will be back on TV with brand-new episodes – and with the show’s original cast no less. Yes, that’s right. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will be back as Mulder and Scully.

For the past few months, practically every X-phile was eagerly waiting for an official announcement after previous reports surfaced that talks between Fox and the cast about a possible revival were happening. I was expectant. My fellow X-phile friends were expectant, so did the rest of the fandom around the globe. So imagine our excitement (and screams of joy) when it was finally announced by Fox last week that The X-Files will indeed have a revival with the show’s creator, Chris Carter at the helm. David and Gillian also confirmed the news through Twitter.

I could hardly contain my excitement. My X-phile friends and I have been lobbying for a third X-Files movie since 2009, even joining other X-philes around the world in urging Fox to make another X-Files feature film. Now our efforts have been rewarded, albeit in another form.

Granted that the X-Files revival will only have six new episodes, I’m still looking forward to seeing Mulder and Scully again on the small screen. The last time I saw them was in the second X-Files movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, and of course in The X-Files season 10 comics, which I’m still currently reading. Based on reports, the revival will consist of mytharc and stand-alone (a.k.a monster-of-the-week) episodes, just like in the old seasons, so I’m very excited about this. It would be interesting to see Mulder and Scully together again and embarking on new adventures.

I’m also excited to see how Fox will update the show’s opening credits. But I do hope the classic X-Files theme song will remain unchanged. It’s a classic for a reason. And who knows, if this revival will be a massive success, maybe us X-philes will see a third movie after all? Or maybe a second set of brand-new episodes? We don’t know at this point. But one thing is for sure. The truth is out there.
