Welcome to X-Files News!
The X-Files on Blu-ray. Fox has been teasing this one for awhile. Chris Carter spoke about releasing the series in HD at San Diego Comic Con. There was even supposed to be some sort of an announcement from Fox Home Entertainment following the 20th anniversary panel, but yet, the Truth is still out there.
We haven't seen an official announcement of a release date, but this is about as much of a secret as Mulder and Scully's feelings for each other were. In season 7. During the "Amor Fati" hallway scene. Fox is certainly working to put The X-Files on blu-ray, and here is the latest scoop.
According to Robert Meyer Burnett on January 7th's 5by5 Screen Time Podcast, Fox is going back to the film negatives of seasons 1 through 4 and remastering them into the widescreen format. The live podcast is not yet available online, but you can read more about what was said over at The Digital Bits.
Still no official word on when you can add this one to your Amazon shopping list, but The X-Files on blu-ray is coming. Hopefully before the aliens get here.
