David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will be searching for the truth one more time. They are on board to reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as FOX has ordered a 6-episode limited series X-Files event.
Following the success of several Whedon-verse series continuing their run in the pages of comics (Buffy, Angel and Firefly), it was probably only a matter of time until other comic publishers looked to other niche genre series from the same era. And with The X-Files celebrating its twentieth anniversary this fall, the time is ripe for special agents Mulder and Scully to return.

The X-Files 2 is simply a mundane episode of the show that Fox is hoping will gain a slice of that summer box office pie.
