David Duchovny on returning to The X-Files

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having been rumoured at the start of the year, Fox confirmed this past week that it is to reopen The X-Files for a new six-episode series, which will reunite creator Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Following the news, The New York Times caught up with Duchovny, where he shared a few words on the show and its upcoming return.

The good things are working with Chris and Gillian again, and getting to do this show again and see what we’ve got,” states Duchovny, who plays FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder. I’m as curious as anybody else. I’m amazed that there’s still an appetite for it and I’m touched. I think the frame of the show is so expansive and so unique and so influential, that it should feel present… I don’t know much at all. We’re gonna do six episodes. »

"X-Files" Revival Mixes Mythology & Monsters

14 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "The X-Files" confirmed to be coming back for a six-part limited series that will shoot this Summer, some questions have emerged regarding what shape the episodes will take.

With stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson onboard, we'll see Mulder and Scully tackling otherworldly threats. But will it be a single serialised story or episodic? Will it stick entirely to the alien invasion mythology and story arc from the original series, or will we get some more regular monster of the week episodes?

Duchovny recently spoke to The New York Times about the upcoming revival and confirmed that it'll be a real mix of mythology and movie-of-the-week style episodes just like the old series:

"We're gonna do both. I'm pretty sure it's gonna begin and end with the mythology. But I really don't know... They were always kind of juggling about what people needed to know, especially when we made the movies. »

Should the New X-Files Focus On Old Plots or New Ones?

23 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With the X-Files returning to TV for a six-episode run, what should the revived series focus on? Should they take the opportunity to wrap up existing, unresolved plots like the alien colonization, or should it shy away from the convoluted mythology in hopes of bringing in a new generation of viewers, which could lead to higher ratings and more episodes in the future?

Longtime fans of the excellent sci-fi/supernatural/mystery TV series The X-Files, (Of which I am one) that ran from 1993-2002, are dancing in the streets due to the recent announcement that the show is coming back for a limited run. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will be reprising their roles as paranormal investigators Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, while original series creator Chris Carter is returning as the producer/showrunner. Carter stated, “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the »

The X-Files’s David Duchovny Drops Hints About New Season, Talks Show’s Influence

28 March 2015 5:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The news earlier this week that The X-Files, the hugely popular science-fiction-cum-horror procedural created by Chris Carter, would be returning for a six-episode season, likely to premiere some time in 2016, came as a hesitant blessing for fans who even suffered through the post-Mulder seasons of the show, to say nothing of that atrocious second film based off the series. The announcement came as a particular stroke of luck for The New York Times, which scheduled an interview with David Duchovny before the news hit to discuss the actor’s upcoming NBC detective series, Aquarius, set around a murder in the 1960s. The interview, conducted by Jeremy Egner, effectively switched subjects to cover the return of Mulder and Scully (Gillian Anderson) to the small screen. [caption id="attachment_185873" align="alignright" width="353"] Image via Fox[/caption] Duchovny, expectedly, only had so much to say about the new series, but had a few morsels of information that would prove fascinating for any die-hard fan, »

David Duchovny Thought Mulder Was the ‘Worst FBI Agent of All Time’

28 March 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The truth is out there, but Mulder might not be the one to find it. David Duchovny didn't think his character Fox Mulder was a very good agent. "The interesting thing about Mulder is nominally he is law enforcement but he never solved one case in nine years," he told the New York Times. "So he’s the worst F.B.I. agent of all time. As F.B.I. agents, I would say we were not by the book. Especially Mulder." As for how he thinks the miniseries reboot will go (they're all the rage!), he believes that he and Gillian Anderson, who plays his partner Dana Scully, are far better actors now than when they first began:And I think we’ve both gotten better as we’ve gotten older, so how do we bring that to bear on these characters? If I were to look back at the »

New 'X-Files' Episodes Will Be Mythology & Monster of the Week

27 March 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kicking off a week filled with exciting news was the confirmation of a new Untitled X Files Reboot. Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of The X Files, will return with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Not much is known about the 6 episodes or what ground they will cover, but David Duchovny assures fans that it will be tied to the overall mythology of the fan-favorite series. When asked if the new show would be serialized, he reveals that it will be both mythology and monster of the week. But beyond that, he isn't quite sure what is being planned. He says:

"We're gonna do both. I'm pretty sure it's gonna begin and end with the mythology. But I really don't know. I don't know much at all. We're gonna do six episodes. I'm as curious as anybody else. »

9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

27 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

'Coach' follows 'The X-Files' and 'Twin Peaks' to primetime resurrection

26 March 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once upon a time, TV shows died and people were sad, but they moved on.  But then peanuts earned "Jericho" another season and earned "Breaking In" another season and Netflix got all resurrection-y with "Arrested Development" and "The Killing" and "Longmire." Then Fox gave "24" new life as a limited series and audiences were like, "What a glorious age we live in." And Showtime got David Lynch and Mark Frost to say they were going to do more "Twin Peaks" and TV fans danced around with their favorite log. And earlier this week, Chris Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson decided the time was right to do another six episodes of "The X-Files" and we all kneels and declared, in the words of Wayne and Garth, that we were not worthy. On Thursday (March 26) afternoon, NBC announced that the magnificent Lazarus machine that is TV 2015 had given new life to. »
