Description: Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

Why Did It End? After two revival seasons, FOX has indicated that they have no plans for another season in the near future. Series co-lead Gillian Anderson claimed that she did not plan on returning to the show, and the ratings had dropped to barely passable levels by the end of the eleventh season, so all parties decided to give it a rest for now. Don’t be surprised if this one makes another return down the road, though, or if the network tries to do something like The X-Files: The Next Generation.

      Yep It need to end, you can see they don’t want to keep on its turned crap,scully should keep away from face fillers!! her skin looks like paper that does not move as all can’t even smile, but then she never did, and you can’t bring back the so called team of her and fox after all the news about them going at it with eachother over top spot and money, he wants top billing, so does she and she wants the same paycheck as mulder…Lets face it peeps…it was good in its day, but thats long gone as scully does not want to keep playing her role, but would we watch the xfiles without her? YES if it was good enough,butas its playing now no way..let it die once and for all…but i still love the music, i don’t know anyone on the planet who does not know the tune….x

    I absolutely loved and still love the X-Files. My favourite SYFY show ever!! Please bring it back. The relationship between Scully and Mulder is the best…. drama and comedy all wrapped in the making of an excellent show. Just my opinion.
