The Associated Press reports, when they were asked by the show's fans if they wanted to do another film? Dchovny said, "All the principals are on board ... Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to 20th Century Fox at this point".

Anderson encouraged fans to voice their opinions so they can he heard, "If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that then I guess that's what it would be".

'The X-Files' TV show aired from 1993 until 2002 on Fox, and two feature films were released by 20th Century Fox.

The first film, simply called 'The X-Files' was released in 1998 and according to Box Office Mojo, it grossed $189 million worldwide. The second film from 2002 was called 'The X-Files: I Want To Believe' and grossed an apparent $68,369,434 worldwide.

Anderson didn't seem to know this as she asked "Were we actually married?"

"I believe so. That was my impression," he replied.

20th Century Fox have yet attempted to make any comment on extending the film franchise.
