X-Files, That ’70s Show Reunions Set For Fox Anniversary Special

Get ready for another X-Files reunion! This one, however, will not be on the big screen, but instead a televised celebration of Fox’s silver anniversary. The network will air the two-hour 25th Anniversary Special on Sunday, April 22 that will not only reunite Agents Scully and Mulder — better known as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny — with series creator Chris Carter, but also a whole host of other special guests.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, That ’70s Show alum Ashton Kutcher will join former castmates Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama for the special. One-time Fly Girl Jennifer Lopez will also be there both with her fellow American Idol judges and with Keenen Ivory Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans, who gave her her first televised job on In Living Color.

The reunions continue as Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino of Married … With Children fame take the stage. The same goes for original 90210 cast members Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty and Ian Ziering. Keifer Sutherland (24, Touch), Patrick Warburton (The Tick), Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad) are also scheduled to appear.

No word has been given yet as to the nature of the reunions or the appearances. Might we see the actors in their original roles? Are we going to see modern-day versions of the That ’70s Show kids, or possibly catch up with the Bundys? The lack of early network hit and recent blockbuster inspiration 21 Jump Street as well as well as Simpsons voice actors seems suspicious. What other special guests would you like to see on the special?

    How about Firefly?  The show that them idiots killed from the beginning.

  • Bartjojoallen

     Yeah! I mean, c’mon, they’re acknowledging THE TICK?!?!

  • E.G.

    “The Tick” was hilarious. “Firefly” was Whedon’s snoozer of a take on Han Solo and the Falcon.

    Why does no 21 Jump Street and the Simpsons seem suspicious?  The Simpsons haven’t gone anywhere; and other than Johnny Depp (who I’m sure is much too busy), would new fans of the movie even care about the old cast of 21 Jump Street?

  • Tom Hunter

    Sheeeeooooooot!!!  Why not some of their more bizarre sitcoms:  the folks from GET A LIFE and IT’S GARRY SHANDLINGS SHOW??

    Those were the types of shows that helped set the early tone for Fox!!!

    It’s Garry Shandling’s Show was actually produced by Showtime.  Fox just got re-broadcasting rights.

    Rumors from the set is that most of the X-Files segment will be Duchovny and Anderson arguing which was the best how to follow the X-Files: Freaky Links or VR.5. [SPOILERS] Eventually, they both agree that M.A.N.T.I.S. was the best of all. [/SPOILERS]
