‘The X-Files’ went “Home Again” with an emotional tale of Scully’s lost family, but did a Mulder’s pursuit of a Banksy-esque killer trash the revival for good? Find out in our full review!
FOX’s The X-Files revival still has but two standalone hours to go before returning to a mythology focus in time for its final, cliffhanger-y episode of 2016, but why wait? Ahead of Monday’s “Home Again,” sneak a peek at Mulder and Scully’s never-ending investigation in the first scene from season (series?) finale “My Struggle II”!
A comparatively short run and split mythology-standalone balance gave an inkling FOX’s X-Files revival might not offer the kind of closure fans have hoped after twenty years, and it may be longer yet before we have any real answers. X-Files creator Chris Carter confirms the revival series will end on a cliffhanger, but what format might pick up the ball down the line?
Rough though the first hour may have been, FOX’s X-Files revival quickly bounced back with an effective stand-alone episode, one to be followed next Monday by a critical favorite. Whatever you make of the six-episode season’s curious sandwiching of mythology episodes, you might not have realized that “Founder’s Mutation” was intended to run much later, and now creator Chris Carter explains why.
FOX’s ‘The X-Files’ revival struggles to stay relevant at first, but feels way less alien embracing the weird fun of its standalone hours. Our early review, before the two-part premiere continues later on tonight!
We can never have too many X-Files revival trailers, especially when the conspiracy goodness starts flowing a week out from its premiere. Not only does the latest bring a bonafide UFO, but also the Smoking Man’s return, while cast and crew drop new info on the FOX revival.
Early word of The X-Files 2016 return has been somewhat less than positive, but if nothing else, ‘90s fans can’t deny the thrill of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reuniting for another go. Neither can Jimmy Kimmel, it seems, watching Mulder and Scully make out in a new X-Files parody from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
As much as FOX’s imminent X-Files revival seeks to answer long-held questions among the fans, the new six-episode series may also attract new audiences to nine seasons’ worth of conspiracy. To wit, what better way to begin the revival’s premiere than a full retread of the series’ history? See for yourself in the first full-minute clip!
Short, but sweet is the name of the game for our imminent X-Files revival, two mythology episodes sandwiching four classic standalone cases. Many a fan have already seen or caught wind of the January 24 premiere “My Struggle,” but find out what super-powered strangeness brings Mulder and Scully back together in the two-night premiere’s second hour “Founder’s Mutation”!
There’s only so much left to say of FOX’s 2016 X-Files revival until the thing actually premieres on January 24, but by gum, FOX is going to give it a whirl. Straight from the cast and crew’s mouth, check out 20 minutes of new preview footage for Mulder and Scully’s grand return to the cases that made them famous!
