The X-Files is famous for keeping its own secrets under wraps, let alone the government's, but did you know creator Chris Carter first dreamed up Mulder and Scully after learning over three million Americans claim to have been abducted by aliens? Or that The X-Files practically invented the mix of standalone and mythology episodes? These are just some of the out-there truths to uncover in the sixth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which cuts through the conspiracy to investigate the legendary X-Files!
Whether we finally learn if aliens invaded in 2012, or spend six hours with another psychic priest, The X-Files’ FOX return has plenty of unanswered questions to dive into. Well, at least one less today, as we now know for sure Mitch Pileggi will be back to lord over Mulder and Scully as Walter Skinner.
Californication is thoroughly behind us, with The X-Files returning in a limited series before long, but David Duchovny fans needn’t wait long to see the actor on the case again. NBC’s first trailer for summer series Aquarius pits the former Fox Mulder against Renly Baratheon, er … Charles Manson at the height of hippie hedonism.
Well, that didn’t take long! Just days after rumors broke that FOX was ready to greenlight an official X-Files revival with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the truth is officially out there. Mulder and Scully will return for a limited X-Files run on FOX, but what other details can we uncover?
The moderate success of FOX’s 24 return helped fuel speculation that The X-Files could similarly prove a prime candidate for limited series, and according to rumor, a Mulder and Scully reunion is closer than ever. FOX is reportedly preparing to greenlight a new X-Files series, albeit with one major limitation.
FOX’s returning ‘24' as event series ‘Live Another Day’ proved a reasonably successful gamble, but fans of ‘The X-Files’ and ‘Prison Break’ may have much more reason to celebrate. The network has confirmed the possibility of returning either series (or both) for limited runs, even commenting on the fate of future ‘24.’
After having spent seven years on 'Californication,' David Duchovny is returning to his detecting (and network television) roots as he's signed on to lead NBC's 'Aquarius.' There he'll be playing a police detective who's on the trail of Charles Manson and his cult members.
Moving through the end of the year into 2014 always promises to be an eventful quarter for Showtime, bringing back our sinful Sundays with 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication,' but not for long. The network confirmed that David Duchovny's 'Californication' will wrap up the series with its upcoming seventh and final season, beginning in April 2014.
Last year's 'Firefly' 10th anniversary Comic-Con reunion panel may have been the talk of the town, but this year X will really mark the spot. Legendary sci-fi series 'The X-Files' will hold its own 20th anniversary reunion panel at Comic-Con 2013, but who will show up to celebrate 'The X-Files' legacy? Will the truth really be out there?
We haven't seen much of David Duchovny outside of his gig in the Showtime series 'Californication,' but the former 'X-Files' star is back in action for the new "suspense submarine thriller" 'Phantom' with Ed Harris as the sub captain who's haunted by his past and his disorienting seizures. Fun!
