Mulder and Scully fans rejoice; we have a potentially exciting time ahead of us, if Gillian Anderson is correct in a comment made during her “Reddit Ask Me Anything” interview. In the Reddit session on May 16th, a fan asked her whether we could ever expect a third installment in the“X-Files” films. Gillian’s response was one of quiet optimism and she went so far to say:
“that there is a very good chance that Chris is in the process of writing it, and as with any creative endeavour, it needs time and space and patience, and I have no doubt that at some point, when it’s the right time, and he is happy with it, it will see the light of day, and that will be the beginning.”
Fans last saw Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) in 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe. Chris Carter the show creator always said the story would continue. This has not yet materialised.
Like many fans of the show, I would welcome a new X-Files movie as I would love to see where Mulder and Scully are now, and how conspiracy theory believer Mulder stands in this new post 9-11 world. So Chris Carter, please give us the chance to see if the truth is really out there.
If you can’t wait for your X-Files fix, IDW Publishing will be starting to publish an in-canon Season 10 comic in July.
