Although talks are underway with series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter to bring The X Files back for another run, unfortunately it doesn’t look like the sci-fi series will go back into production again this year.
“It’s not for lack of trying,” says a show spokesperson. “It’s just very difficult for them to easily find the time to do this. Gillian lives in London, she has young children. Coming to Vancouver for three or four months of filming is not easy for her, particularly when she has other work commitments. David can be available, and then something big can come along for him. So it’s not easy to find time. We would love to do it again, and I believe there will be a time when it happens.”
