The classic paranormal investigative series, The X-Files, is making a comeback, with acclaimed director Ryan Coogler set to take the helm. Chris Carter, the creator of the original series, recently revealed on the CBC podcast On The Coast with Gloria Macarenko that Coogler will be remounting the iconic show with a diverse cast.

Originally premiering in 1993, The X-Files starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully. Over the course of 11 seasons, the duo investigated mysterious cases involving the paranormal, quickly gaining a dedicated fan base. Now, with Coogler’s involvement, the show is set to undergo a reimagining that will offer a fresh take on the beloved franchise.

Coogler, known for his recent success with the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever, has already proven his ability to create compelling stories with rich, diverse characters. Wakanda Forever received multiple awards and nominations, including five Academy Award nominations, showcasing Coogler’s skill as both a writer and director.

20th Television has yet to comment on the news, and Coogler’s representatives have not responded to inquiries. However, Coogler’s production banner, Proximity Media, is under a 5-year exclusive deal with Disney Television, as reported by Deadline in 2021. This partnership could potentially pave the way for a reboot of The X-Files under the Disney umbrella.

With today’s world being “steeped in conspiracies,” as Carter puts it, a rebooted X-Files series seems timely and relevant. As fans eagerly await more news about this exciting project, it’s clear that Coogler’s take on The X-Files has the potential to breathe new life into the series, exploring uncharted territory with a fresh, diverse cast.
