SHARE Fox eyeing reboot of ‘X-Files,’ ‘Prison Break’

PASADENA, Calif. — Fox TV Group’s new leaders are looking in their rearview mirror, hoping to resurrect two of the network’s old hits.

The fourth-place network’s co-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman told TV reporters at Saturday’s press tour that they’re in early talks to bring back “The X-Files” and they’d resurrect “Prison Break” “in a heartbeat.”

“It’s been reported and it’s true that we’ve had some conversations on the ‘The X-Files,’” Newman said about the Chris Carter-created sci-fi drama that capped off a nine-season run in 2002. DePaul University alum Gillian Anderson (“Crisis,” “The Fall”) and David Duchovny (“Californication”) starred as FBI special agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

“We are hopeful of being able to bring that back at some point,” Newman added.
