NEW YORK (AP) _ David Duchovny isn’t returning to ``The X-Files,″ but he’s still fighting aliens _ in the new sci-fi comedy ``Evolution.″

Duchovny plays a biology teacher who battles alien spores that develop at lightning pace, quickly evolving into life forms that threaten humanity. Julianne Moore and Orlando Jones co-star as members of his bumbling band of alien fighters.

Although he’s not returning to the Fox series for the show’s ninth season, Duchovny tells People magazine in its June 25 issue that he would happily return for a second ``X-Files″ movie.

The 1998 film had his Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, played by Gillian Anderson, searching for evidence of aliens on Earth.

But Duchovny doesn’t believe there should be another movie until the TV series is off the air.

``It’s my feeling that you should actually give the audience a chance to miss the show _ and give me a chance to miss the show,″ the 40-year-old actor said.
