Agents Mulder and Scully are officially returning for duty again.

After announcing in January that a reboot of sorts was in the works, Fox has announced that X-Files will be back for a six-episode run, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles.

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of The X-Files — one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers — and we couldn't be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” said Fox TV Group CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden in a joint statement.

X-Files ran for nine seasons on Fox from 1993 to 2002, spawned two films and earned 16 Emmys.

Show creator Chris Carter is set to helm the revival.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” Carter said. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

The series is set to begin in summer 2015 with an air date to be announced at a later time.

"The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture — yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning," Walden and Newman added. "Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

The first news of a X-Files resurrection was first addressed earlier this year, when Walden and Newman admitted they were working on a possible return, as well as one for cult favorite Prison Break. (There was no news on the latter front.)

Fox most recently staged a return for Jack Bauer with 24: Live Another Day, a limited series which performed solidly in the ratings. It has not been picked up for another installment.

Mulder & Scully? Well, it wouldn't really be The X-Files without them, as Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish showed us.

Does this mean they're going to pick up where the last movie left off? Or do a "reboot" with a new plotline?

Hopefully this will wash the taste of 'Californication' out of my mouth where Duchovny is concerned. Gawd, that show was awful (I bailed after the first misogynistic season). I'd say he was slumming, but that's probably too nice a word. I saw him on 'Real Time' a couple of weeks ago and it seemed he feels the same about it now.
