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".

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