If you miss spending your evenings watching Scully and Mulder investigating the paranormal or long for the days of watching Coach Hayden Fox and his Screaming Eagles, you’re in luck!

Last week, Fox announced that it had ordered a six episode run of “The X-Files,” with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively.

NBC also announced that it would be ordering 13 new episodes of the 1989-97 sitcom “Coach.” NBC says Craig T. Nelson, who starred in the original series, will return to reprise his role as Coach Fox.

What other TV series do you think should get rebooted? Which TV programs in history have had the biggest cult following or the most loyal viewers?
