The X-Files’ 2016 return hasn’t revealed very much beyond a few photos and scant teases of new footage, but a number of familiar faces will at least populate Mulder and Scully’s revived investigation. Comedian and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani is the latest to sign on for The X-Files event series, but as whom?
Just before Comic-Con 2015, The X-Files made up for its absence with a marathon tease bringing just a fleeting glimpse of Mulder and Scully back in action, and with 2016 growing ever closer, that window is … still opening.

The X-Files were officially reopened with the first batch of photos from 2016's FOX revival, even as many wondered what might change for Mulder and Scully after so many years out of the spotlight.

Apart from a general conception of what David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson currently look like as human beings, we’ve been waiting for a genuine glimpse of The X-Files’ long awaited return.

X-Files fans can hardly wait until 2016 to pick up with Mulder and Scully, though questions remain as to how the six-episode run will balance lingering alien mythology arcs with the classic standalones.

FOX’s X-Files event revival has fans in a tizzy with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson tweeting out snippets from the set, but shooting in a very public Vancouver has brought cameras out of the woodwork.

The full nature of Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival remains somewhat unclear, even after David Lynch returned to the project, but one certainty remains a wealth of characters and now-famous stars eyed to return.
