X-Files to return with Mulder and Scully.

Cult sci-fi show The X-Files is to return to TV after a 13-year hiatus.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for the six-part series.

Original creator Chris Carter will be at the helm when production starts this summer.

It is not yet known when it will air on TV.

The show, which ran for nine seasons from 1993-2002, saw Mulder and Scully investigate unsolved mysteries and paranormal cases.

More than 200 episodes of the The X-Files were made, making it one of the longest-running sci-fi series in US network TV history. Two feature films were also made - in 1998 and 2008.

Carter said: "I think of it as a 13-year commercial break."

"The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories."
