At this level, it’s mainly a conspiracy concept, however it looks as if The X-Recordsdata may very well be coming again once more. In a brand new interview, present creator Chris Carter stated that none aside from Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is desirous about bringing again the favored present.
“I simply spoke to a younger man, Ryan Coogler, who’s going to remount The X-Recordsdata with a various forged,” Carter stated throughout an interview on Canadian Broadcasting Company (by way of BD). “So he’s obtained his work reduce out for him, as a result of we coated a lot territory.”
io9 reached out to Disney, which owns Fox, in addition to a consultant for Coogler concerning the remark and can replace the story if or after we hear again. However it’s price noting that again in 2021, Coogler’s manufacturing firm Proximity signed a five-year deal to develop tv packages for all of Disney’s channels and streaming providers. And because it appears seemingly that Fox nonetheless owns the rights to The X-Recordsdata, the notion that Carter and Coogler had a dialog about it appears extremely believable.
The larger query is, will Coogler truly do it? Or was it simply talks? Carter sounds assured, however within the interview, there was no follow-up. After all, it wouldn’t be the primary time The X-Recordsdata got here again—the unique present, which starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, resulted in 2002, then got here again in 2016, then got here again once more in 2018. On the films, the primary movie was launched in 1998 and the second 10 years later in 2008. Again in 2020, there was even information of an animated spinoff, however there hasn’t been any updates on that shortly.

All of which is to say… possibly? If Carter stated it (he did) and Coogler’s firm is trying to create new content material for Disney (it’s), then that’s extra proof than most X-Recordsdata conspiracy theories have behind them. What do you suppose?
