Cue the eerie music: "The X-Files" is coming back to Fox.
Production is scheduled to begin this summer on a six-episode "event series" starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, the odd-couple FBI agents who investigated unexplained phenomena for nine seasons, beginning in 1993, and two movies, the most recent in 2008.
"I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," said "X-Files" creator Chris Carter in a statement included in Fox's Tuesday announcement. "the good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
Fox earlier rebooted its retired "24" franchise with last season's "24: Live Another Day." Maybe "Married...With Children" has a few more stories left?
