I Want to Believe

Recently there have been rumors of a reboot of the television series The X-Files. Longtime fans like me are hoping the rumors become truth and that the original stars are on board.

The television series ended more than two decades ago, and the last episodes of the final season left many viewers wanting more. A lot has happened in the media, politics and around the world. It would be intriguing to see what new stories and conspiracies the writers come up with for the FBI agents to tackle.

Whether you are a longtime fan, newbie, believer or skeptic, these titles will get you ready for the reboot.
