"Things are getting strange I'm starting to worry! Back on my TV are Mulder and Scully!"
So will sing Catatonia's Cerys Matthews, if the lovely-voiced DJ and singer knows a cash cow ripe for milking, that is. The X-Files is back! After a thirteen year absence from our TVs, US network Fox has announced a six-episode "event series" is to begin filming this summer. David 'Fox Mulder' Duchovny and Gillian 'Dana Scully' Anderson are set to reprise their key roles, with series creator/executive producer Chris Carter overseeing the project.
Mulder and Scully's last case together was a little more recent than their final TV outing however, with the pair appearing in 2008's cinema release, The X-Files: I Want To Believe.
Already a year in the making, there's no word of an air date yet, but with production ready to ramp up, it can't be that far into the future. In other recently-resurrected cult TV news, David Lynch's Twin Peaks is also heading back to our screens, with a tentative release schedule of some point in 2016. Though production is rumoured to be progressing worryingly slowly, fan favourite coffee-swilling FBI agent Dale Cooper is set to return, with Kyle MacLachlan picking up his badge once more in the role.
