THE X-FILES IS OFFICIALLY COMING BACK! Rinse out your black t-shirt with "I want to believe" on it, because it's freaking happening, people. Mulder and Scully are returning!!!!

Fox just issued a press release confirming the long-whispered return of The X-Files — and also confirming the return of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

It's been 13 years since the finale (and a couple of so-so films in between) and now Fox has re-ordered a six-episode X-Files run, with original showrunner Chris Carter.

In the PR release, there's lots of nice talk, like this bir from Carter saying he thinks of the hiatus as a, "...13-year commercial break." And as for what's in store, lots more weirdness as Carter seems pretty giddy about the state of scifi television today, "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."

Hell. Yes.
