The truth is...coming back to TV.

Mulder and Scully are back, you guys! Sci-Fi fans freaked out yesterday when it was announced The X-Files will return to Fox for a six-episode stint. But its revival wasn't just because it's a really great series. 

Following the show's theme, there was a bit of a conspiracy over the course of many years to orchestrate its return. One of those people behind the curtain is Avi Quijada, editor-in-chief of the fan site X-Files News. 

Quijada said the main cast will come back, along with writer Glen Morgan, who is very well known within the fandom community. Although the show ended years ago, its fans were instrumental in sparking up this revival 

"It's been a long ride, but at the same time it's something that today is awfully rewarding and such a great victory for everyone," said Quijada.
