Variety reports that the network is developing an animated comedy spin-off series that will be called The X-Files: Albuquerque.

The new show is tentatively titled The X-Files: Albuquerque, and it has already gotten a script and presentation commitment at Fox. In the show, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson played Special Agents Mulder and Scully, both assigned to the "X-Files", which included unusual and unsolved cases.

The show is expected to be a spinoff of the original show, and now going by the title "The X-Files: Albuquerque". That series centers on an unpopular Starfleet vessel's support crew, while Albuquerque follows the exploits of the X-Files' B-team.

The live-action series went for nine season on Fox through 2002 before it was revived for two seasons in 2016.

Fresh Covid-19 cases climbing after a lull
Today is the 158th day since India implemented a nationwide lockdown, to help curb the novel coronavirus pandemic. Taking to Twitter, the Ministry of Health said, " Active cases are only 22 percent of total COVID-19 cases".

During a panel at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in 2018, Anderson said she was "finished" with playing Scully after the eleventh season.

Russo and Sosenko previously collaborated on the feature "Movie 43" as well as shows like "Brickleberry" at Comedy Central and "Paradise PD" at Netflix. That show focused on a mall cop and a former Stanford professor investigating paranormal activities in Los Angeles for a shadowy government organization.

On paper, that sounds a lot like Star Trek: Lower Decks, the new animated Star Trek comedy about the low-level staff of a Federation ship, that's now airing on CBS All Access.

TV Line first reported the development news.
