The 20th anniversary of the X-Files rolls around this fall and the former cast and crew convened on the San Diego Comic-Con to treat fans to a panel discussion.
Created by Chris Carter, the sci-fi drama has been off the air since 2002 but spawned two films, The X-Files: Fight the Future in 1998 and The X-Files: I Want to Believe in 2008. Since then, devote viewers have been clamoring for a third feature and were hopeful that an announcement of one would come at this year's Comic-Con.
Ultimately fans were disappointed when it came to news of an upcoming film venture. However, Carter acknowledged the possibility of a TV show like X-Files being marketable in today's climate.
"The suspicions and the conspiracy theories are rampant today, so I think that if The X-Files were to come back now, you could do the show now," the writer/director said, according to Mercury News.
Meanwhile, the topic of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully's (Gillian Anderson) relationship dominated the fan submitted questions, reports Vulture. According to the actors, the characters did have a sex scene that was never aired.
"We shot it, we shot it. It's somewhere," Anderson said, pleasing shippers everywhere.
San Diego Comic-Con continues through Sunday.
