'The X-Files' Season 11: Extra Episodes Planned? 'Six Is Too Few,' Says Duchovny [VIDEO]

The truth is still out there, and The X-Files David Duchovny wants to spend more time seeking it out.

Last winter, Fox breathed new life into Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully's (Gillian Anderson) '90s quest into the paranormal. Now, fans are dying for more - and so is Duchovny.

With an incredibly successful six-episode revival to build on, series creator Chris Carter is trying the round up the cast for part 2. As much as the actors want to suit up once more, it's a bit like herding cats.

"We are talking about it, and like before, it's a matter of getting the three principal people in the same room for a significant amount of time to shoot it," Duchovny told TV Insider. "Last time, it obviously took nearly 10 years [to get us all together again], so hopefully it won't take that long."

Although season 10 only consisted of six episodes, season 11 will hopefully come equipped with a larger order. Short seasons are highly attractive to actors at the moment - just look at the cable landscape - there are those who believe X-Files could benefit from a few extra hours. Frankly, we're inclinded to agree.

"I think there were too few episodes," Duchovny mused. "Twenty-two is far too many, but six is too few, so we've got to figure out something right in between."

Sadly, it doesn't look as if we'll get to see the Mulder and Scully back in action until 2017. "My Struggle II" ended with a massive cliffhanger, but, after waiting 10 years for those iconic flashlights to crisscross the screen once more, a year should be chump change for diehards.

"I can tell you that Chris and David and Gillian would all like to do more of these, and certainly the network and studio would love to do more," Fox Television Group chairman Gary Newman said, according to IndieWire. So we feel encouraged by that. It shouldn't be anything you anticipate before the 2017-2018 season."

Guess we'll have to content ourselves with scanning the night skies for UFOs in the meantime.
