    In May, Fox executives said they were "very optimistic" that a new X-Files event season could happen, possibly in 2017. Now, Fox Entertainment president David Madden has come forward to repeat those comments, adding that there are "significant talks" with the show's stars and creator to make another new season.

    "We would love to do other seasons," Madden said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, as reported by Deadline. "There are significant talks with (stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter). We are working hard, and would like to get a new season soon."


    Happy Birthday, Gillian. If you see Dana, tell her Fox says she might wanna polish up the ol' badge soon-ish. Love, D

    Fox brought back the famous '90s show earlier this year for a six-episode season. Fox TV boss Dana Walden added that Fox originally had grander plans.

    "We would have liked to do more in the first place, but there were limitations," Walden explained. "Gillian lives in the U.K. David in New York and Los Angeles. The show shoots in Vancouver. So it's about coordinating a time when they can carve time to be in Vancouver."

    If a new X-Files season does happen, it would likely be an abbreviated, event-style season like this year's.

    "We're in conversations where we can do more," Walden added. "I don't see a full season of episodes, but I'd be happy to get 10 or 8 episodes."

    Not everyone loved the new revival series, and Madden and Walden were asked if they might want to make creative changes for the potential new season.

    "I actually think the season was strong," Madden said. "The episodes represent Chris and his team's vision, and we will take our cue from them." As for Walden, she said the first new season was something of a challenge for the writers since the show had been off the air for so long.

    "It was introduced to new viewers, and (the writers) had the challenge of filling in the mythology," Walden said. "Going forward, there won't be the same obligation to reset the series."
