UPDATE: While promoting his new book in Los Angeles, Duchovny recorded this interview in which he states the new version of “The X-Files” will be “a very short TV season” (at the 3:11 mark in the video). He also reconfirmed they’re “gearing up” to make it even though, as of now, it’s “not a definite.”
The second that Fox execs admitted that they were looking into the possibility of an “X-Files” reboot, one thing was clear — one of the first questions David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson would be asked for the next six months, in any interview setting, would be: “What’s up with the return of ‘The X-Files’?”
So today, on “The Talk,” David Duchovny was asked what was up with the return of “The X-Files.” And he had something resembling an answer! “It looks good — it looks very good,” Duchovny said, while attempting to talk about the upcoming TV show he actually has shot, NBC’s “Aquarius.”
But he then specified that “It looks better than it did two weeks ago,” an indication that negotiations are definitely in the works and dump trucks of money are finding their way to what we’re sure is his lovely home.
