So this is happening — FOX has ordered a limited six-episode run of The X-Files.

It looks like it'll be a mini-series picking up events with Scully and Mulder after the 2008 film. A limited-run series might be the best way to manage this franchise at the moment, since A.) There are still questions that people like Kumail Nanjiani have, and B.) The series hasn't translated all that well to film, and might benefit from the extended storytelling television can afford.
