Back in April, X-Files showrunner Chris Carter offered up a cryptic suggestion that the once spun-off, thrice-dead Lone Gunmen might return for the 2016 revival, and it seems that mystery is officially afoot. Not only with the conspiracy theorist hacker trio return to life for The X-Files event series, we know when the first official trailer might arrive.
If we were wondering why The Flash star Robbie Amell seemed absentee for Season 2 or Legends of Tomorrow, FOX’s X-Files revival may officially have closed the case. Not only will Amell join the revived sci-fi conspiracy thriller as a new FBI agent, he’ll be joined by Six Feet Under alum Lauren Ambrose.
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. One crack at a time. Let’s speculate wildly with 15 seconds of new X-Files footage!
The X-Files will remain closed as far as Comic-Con 2015, though we needn’t wait until January for our first look at Mulder and Scully back in action. Check out our first official footage from the 2016 event revival, as FOX sets up a mammoth 201-day catchup of the original series!
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. Now, series stars and creator Chris Carter talk the state of Mulder and Scully in 2016, and how the post-9/11 climate influences the new X-Files.
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. Now, a full file of new photos from the revival have arrived, teasing Americans and Community guest stars, with a few extraterrestrial details to boot.
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. Well, for one, it seems we can expect the FBI favorites will go up against a crazy were-beast of some kind, amid all the alien activity! That’s something, right?
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. See Mulder and Scully back in action, along with a very dapper Joel McHale in our first look at the 2016 X-Files return!
All of the X-Files casting to date has followed the return of old school stars like Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis, but the latest acquisition for FOX’s 2016 revival comes from a different school altogether. Fresh off the (series?) finale of Community, Joel McHale will trade in Greendale for little green men.
