Many years have passed, many more new cult genre science fiction or paranormal tv shows have come to entertain us, and the two films were released to mixed responses. In recent times and months we have come to learn that one of the biggest genre cult television shows will return with the two main actors and the time may be perfect.
The X-Files was a massive world-wide success in the mid-to-late 90’s, through several series of paranoid paranormal investigation, alien and monster encounters, government secrets and cover-ups challenged with Mulder and Scully the brave duo we cheered on with each new episode.
Like the soon to return Twin Peaks (the other early 90’s huge cult hit show) The X-Files will return to the small screen among a number of shows which have been influenced by it in various ways, from the writing, themes and it could be a challenge for it to rise above them. Or will new X-Files shine brighter beside the inferior shows which are similar but not quite the same?
We can not be too sure of what exactly we will see from the new series, where it will pick up with the characters and plots after such a long time away, but as it was often one of the most cerebral and respectful genre/science fiction shows, we can hopefully expect it to challenge us and make us think or question what we know in and around our world.
