It's official: Fox is bringing backThe X-Files.
The network announced Tuesday that the sci-fi hit, which ran from 1993 to 2002, is returning as a six-episode event series this summer. Original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively. Creator and executive producer Chris Carter will also return.
"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," Carter said in a statement. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
During its original run, The X-Files won 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globe Awards and a Peabody Award. It also spawned two movies, The X-Files (1998) and The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008).
We're just hoping they update the opening credits:
