The X-Files is coming back to television—and to the city where it all started.
In an interview with CTV, actor William B. Davis, who played the Smoking Man in the original series, confirmed that the conspiracy drama will be returning to Vancouver to film the new episodes. Series creator Chris Carter also confirmed his team would be returning to Vancouver in an interview with X-Files News.
On Tuesday (March 24), FOX announced that the sci-fi TV show has been revived for a six-episode run. The groundbreaking show was famously filmed in Vancouver and around the Lower Mainland during its first five seasons.
Actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will both be reprising their roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
The X-Files is not the only TV show to get a reboot in recent months. David Lynch's Twin Peaks is tentatively returning to the airwaves, while a "sequel" to the Craig T. Nelson-starring comedy Coach has been picked up for a 13-episode run on NBC.
An air date for the new episodes has not yet been announced, which means you have plenty of time to binge-watch the previous nine seasons on Netflix.
