Will 'The X Files' Return to TV? Here's What One of the Show's Producers Says Den of Geek

"The X Files" executive producer Frank Spotnitz hinted in an interview with the fan site Den of Geek that the show could return to television.

Asked whether the show could return to TV like "Star Trek" did with its different versions, he answered, "I wouldn’t be surprised at all. I mean, I don’t think I would have anything to do with it, but you know, for better or for worse, these things are titles of big corporations, like ‘Star Trek’ belongs to Paramount and ‘The X-Files’ belongs to Twentieth Century Fox, and it’s a huge asset in their libraries so I can’t imagine they would let it sit languishing forever."

Asked about whether the show could return as "Mulder and Scully: The College Years," he replied, "Anything could happen. I just hope that if they do it, they do it well -- that’s my only request."
