David Duchovny has revealed the X-Files reboot "looks very good".

The actor played FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder in the sci-fi series from 1993 to 2002 and he has said he is interested in taking a second swing at the series, albeit in some 'limited' form.

Appearing on The Talk to promote Aquarius, his new show for NBC, the 54-year-old star was asked about the X Files.

He said, "It looks good.  It looks very good".

Fox chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman have been in talks with the original series creator Chris Carter about rebooting the series which also starred Gillian Anderson as Special Agent Dana Scully.

Gary told Entertainment Weekly, "It's true that we've had some conversations on X-Files. We're hopeful of being able to bring that back at some point."

Anderson has also previously indicated that she is open to the idea of playing Scully again.

Last year, she said, "There is always a possibility, it's always a matter of it actually happening - and there's a lot that needs to happen between the idea and actually turning up on set, and I don't unfortunately have any control over that.

"But would I do it? I would, yes."
