X-Files brings out its “Lower Decks”

The X-Files will return to the small screen, but in a comedic animated cartoon that will depict the B-Team, the agents who investigated “X” cases that are too ridiculous or trivial for Scully and Mulder.

It’s in development at Fox. Although the original series never shied away from humor (remember “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space?”), I suspect the response to this announcement may be mixed.
