 The X-Files gets revival update: 'Fox still hopeful'

Fox co-chairman Gary Newman has said that he is "hopeful" of reviving The X-Files, in spite of the 'challenges' that it will entail.

The network stoked rumours of a possible return for the David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson-starring series at the TCA press tour this month.

Newman and fellow Fox co-chairman Dana Walden told reporters that talks remain ongoing about bringing a new version of The X-Files to screens.

Speaking to TV Insider, Walden made it clear that Fox "wouldn't" commission a new version of The X-Files without involvement from creator Chris Carter.

"I am more hopeful than optimistic right now," Newman added. "I am hopeful it will come together. But it will be challenging to make that happen."

Anderson recently said that a new X-Files series or movie is "always a possibility", despite her commitment to NBC's Hannibal and the BBC's The Fall.

Duchovny, who has also expressed willingness to return to The X-Files, will next appear in the NBC limited run series Aquarius as a police sergeant hunting down Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony).

The X-Files originally aired on Fox from 1993 to 2002, and spunoff into two feature films.

Carter has most recently worked on a sci-fi series for Amazon, which was cancelled before ever airing.
