FOX is in early talks to bring back The X-Files. Dana Walden and Gary Newman, co-chairmen and CEOs of FOX Television Group revealed at today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour.
IGN was able to follow-up with Walden with a small group of reporters, to see how close they were to actually striking a deal.
"You know who we're dealing with, do you think I can elaborate???" Walden laughed, when asked if she could say a little more about where they are in the process.
Adding, "Gary and I both worked through the entire run of the X-Files. It was a great experience, we've maintained great relationships with creator Chris Carter, Gillian [Anderson], and David [Duchovny]. We're very hopeful. It's hard because they're actors who are very busy. Chris has a lot going on. So it's about finishing those conversations."
As to whether they'd produce the series without that team, Walden said that they absolutely "would not move forward without Chris."
