Fox announced today that The X-Files will be returning to the air after a thirteen year absence. The network has ordered six new episodes of the award-winning show for what it is dubbing an 'event series'.

The next chapter of The X-Files will be helmed by original creator Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson signed on to reprise their iconic roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Production is scheduled to begin this summer with a return date to be announced at a later time.
