Back in March came the news that “Black Panther” and “Creed” director Ryan Coogler was developing a new version of FOX’s iconic sci-fi franchise “The X-Files”.

Series creator Chris Carter was the one who revealed the news in an interview, teasing that Coogler was currently developing that new version but wouldn’t go into specifics beyond it being a ‘remount’ with “a diverse cast”.

Yesterday’s Bloomberg report about Netflix developing spin-offs of its shows like “Wednesday” and “Peaky Blinders” also included in it a little reference to the “X-Files” reboot.

That line confirms the project is still in development but sadly didn’t add any new details. It’s still not clear if this is a ground-up reboot, another revival, a legacy sequel, or something else. No other names are attached at this time.

The original series followed FBI Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), who investigate supernatural phenomena ranging from a global conspiracy involving alien colonisation to more monster-of-the-week events.

The original run lasted nine seasons from 1993 to 2001 before being revived for two more seasons in 2016. In total, 218 episodes were produced, along with two feature films.
