David Duchovny Would Be "Happy" To Return To The X-Files


This past weekend, Fox Television Group Chairmen-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman revealed that they have had conversations about bring The X-Files back. The show ran on Fox from 1993-2002 and earned 21 Emmy nominations.

USA Today reached out to David Duchovny to comment on the recent news and told them 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)."

He sounded eager to jump back into FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder's shoes. "I'm assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now," Duchovny said.

There is one caveat, the 54-year-old actor has no interest in returning for a full season. "Certainly I can't nor would I be interested in doing a full season," Duchovny explained. "It will be in some kind of limited form. We're all old, we don't have the energy for a full season."


You can next see Duchovny in a new NBC series, Aquarius, which is set in the 1960s. Duchovny plays a homicide detective who is tracking down Charles Manson.
