But it's been 14 years since we last saw our favorite FBI agents on TV, so now is a good a time as ever to remind ourselves where we left off. Series creator Chris Carter has said in interviews leading up to the premiere that you don't have to watch the nine seasons of television plus two movies in order to enjoy the new series, but better safe than sorry.

They never came out and said it or showed that they hooked up, but there were implications of it in the last three seasons of the show.

Mulder had agreed to be the father of the baby through cold and clinical invitro fertilization, however he was "there" for her when the procedure "didn't work". There was no definitive answer on how the baby was conceived but most likely it was through Mulder and Scully's consummation; however in one episode they said the chip in her neck triggered the pregnancy. Regardless, their hook-up was strongly alluded to as a possibility if you listened to some of the dramatic narrations by Mulder and Scully at the beginning of some of those later episodes, meaning that even if the baby was conceived some other way, they still had slept together.

When The X-Files was dropped into the great revival machine of the '10s, the search for the truth began again in earnest, in a medium that fans hadn't really been expecting. And they were, though no longer actively investigating the paranormal, living and sleeping together. Mulder and Scully's relationship on The X-Files evidently took a turn between the second movie and the first "event" series.
