FOX is in talks to create ‘The X-Files’ reboot and David Duchovny is on board to reprise his role as Agent Fox Mulder. Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman had announced the news at the channel’s TCA presentation on Saturday.

Duchovny has responded and told USA Today that he’s “more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again with (co-star) Gillian (Anderson) and (series creator) Chris (Carter).”

The 54-year-old added, “I’m assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now. 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.”

At the moment he’s in NBC’s “Aquarius” and is gearing up to promote his first novel “Holy Cow”, about a talking cow that escapes from the slaughterhouse.

Gillian Anderson, who played Dana Scully, has said in the past she’s up for the role again.

Recently during her interview with The Nerdist, Anderson admitted she’d be “f*cking overjoyed” to reunite with Duchovny for more episodes of “The X-Files.”

“The X-Files” reboot starring Duchovny and Anderson would come to television more than two decades later. The show first started production in 1993. Duchovny was 33 and Anderson was 25.

In a past interview Duchovny talked about making one of the “X-Files’ movies.

“I did a lot of running for this movie. You know, action is pretty boring to do as an actor. Action and sex scenes are silly because it’s all faking. I mean, it’s all fake, but those things are faker than the rest. Chris wanted a scene where I chase someone as fast as I can for five minutes. I will be interested to see how it cuts together, but we sure ran our asses off for, like, five or six nights in a row, in the rain. It was pretty stupid and I hated it.”

With “The X-Files” reboot starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson probably coming to life and Kyle MacLachlan definitely returning to “Twin Peaks”, what other series would you like to see be rekindled?
