The X-Files revival is one step closer to becoming a reality. Fox is close to giving an official green-light to a limited series revival of their iconic science fiction series which aired between 1993 and 2002. Per sources, the network has settled on a "short-stack" order in the range of six to eight episodes and talks with their sister studio 20th Century Fox Television are on-going.
