Two of The X-Files' best writers ink deal with Fox to return for revival series

With much of the key cast already locked in to return for The X-Files, Fox is now cutting deals to bring back some of the behind-the-scenes talent.

TV Line reports the network has signed deals with former X-Files writer-producers Glen Morgan and James Wong, who will join series creator Chris Carter in the writers' room for the upcoming six-episode limited series. The duo were a major creative force during the show’s original, decade-long run, responsible for some of the show’s best episodes. Needless to say, this is great news.

The writers spent several years working with Carter to craft the mythology, and some of their most memorable highlights include “Beyond the Sea” in season one and “Musings of the Cigarette Smoking Man” and “Home” in season four. The pair will apparently write and produce one episode each, and Morgan is set executive-produce the season with Carter. 

The network already has original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on the list, and now we have some of the writers who truly brought their characters to life. For fans of the series, this is a great move — and shows they’re making a push to recapture The X-Files at its best.

Are you glad to hear Morgan and Wong will be back?
