In a recent interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, Duchovny revealed that he's still open to the possibility of returning to the franchise.

He praised showrunner Chris Carter for how the series was able to foresee societal shifts with his storytelling, saying that many of his plots from 1993 still resonate today.

I'm always up for more, clearly. Someone sent me a clip of Joel McHale from the 2016 episodes we did, and it's a spot-on description of where we're at six years later. I don't think Chris Carter gets enough credit for being [prescient]. Forget about the ins and outs of plots and who gets pregnant or who gets shot. I mean, every show turns into a soap opera, so you have limited options. People are going to die or get pregnant or go to prison, right? Or become president.

I think like it's a little bit in the weeds to worry about characters' fates, when you realize that Chris somehow made a show in 1993, and again in 2016, that predicted what 2022 would be like. If he wanted to do more, I'd certainly listen to him. I'd say, "What have you got?

I Call True: He may well be up for a bit of easy cash if there were an opportunity so technically TRUE but Anderson has very publicly said she isn't https://bit.ly/3Qq4iiB so I don't see this happening any time soon

Absolute TV and worldwide phenomenon that took the world by storm when it hit its stride, still works well today and stands up to repeated watches. I even liked the films so would welcome a return for sure.

Good for it's time but not sure it stands up now and I cant see any real reason to revive it.

Hmm they flogged it to death and the last season pretty much retired them and handed over to two new leads to take the franchise forward, so unless he has a bit part I don't see it
