Following the Entertainment Weekly magazine cover featuring Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) from the Untitled X-Files Revival, the publication has released eight new photos, giving us our first look at two new cast members, Annet Mahendru and Joel McHale, along with more images of Mulder and Scully on their first case in more than a decade. We also get a look at the title page for the season premiere script, which is entitled "My Struggle", along with a behind-the-scenes shot of series creator Chris Carter in a production meeting.
As you can see in the first photo below, Mulder is looking rather disheveled, with David Duchovny revealing his character is in a "dark, dark place" when the series picks up. We have no details about how he got to this place. The last time we saw both Mulder and Scully together was in the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe. »
Earlier this month, production got under way on Fox's Untitled X-Files Revival, which brings back Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and David Duchovny (Fox Mulder). Given the secretive nature of the show, there isn't too much we know yet, except that the revival will premiere this January, with the two stars joined by Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), William B. Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man) and new guest star Joel McHale, who will play an ally to Mulder. Today, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover of this week's issue, which features both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reuniting a Mulder and Scully, who shared new details about the show.
The series premiere will focus on Scully and Mulder investigating a "possible alien abductee," played by The Americans star Annet Mahendru, based on a tip provided by a conservative talk show host, played by Joel McHale. In the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe, »
The two stars are set to reprise their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in a new series of ‘The X Files’ and the 54-year-old actor is confident they will come across as well on screen as they did when the show first aired.
He said: “The chemistry I think is good. I mean, we haven’t done it in a while. Hopefully it’s still there. Chemistry is something that I don’t think you can create, and I don’t think you can lose it. It’s either there or it isn’t. It’s been said that it’s there for us, so I imagine that it’ll still be there.”
Though the revival was announced a few months ago, David admits it had been in the pipeline for “a couple of years” but has »

According to an official statement: He will be there in person to introduce his carte blanche, comprising an anthology of the show's best episodes, as well as some of his features, including The X-Files (USA, 1998), and The X-Files: I Want to Believe (USA, 2008).

Back in March it was confirmed that Fox is to reopen The X-Files with a new six-part series that will reunite David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. As the new episodes gear up to go into production this summer, Duchovny has been talking to THR about the franchise and its return to television following 2008’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe.
“When I was doing the show, I always assumed – because we started to do the movies – that we would naturally transition to not carrying the load of doing a full season of the show but doing a movie every four or five years. That didn’t work out with the movies. … [The second movie] did well, but I guess not well enough. Fox made some mistakes with that movie that hurt the franchise and they didn’t seem to want to do another movie. »

It had been six years since The X-Files had gone off the air and fans were eagerly awaiting Mulder and Scully's return in The X-Files: I Want To Believe; this was Chris Carter's chance to return The X-Files to its glory days and hopefully lead to future X-Files' films. Sadly The X-Files: I Want To Believe failed to connect with audiences and seemed to spell the end of Chris Carter's fantastic creation. Thankfully that was not the case as it was announced »

David Duchovny previously hinted at the character's return last month during a Letterman appearance. Having been with the show since the beginning, Skinner essentially became the most well-known supporting character in the franchise alongside the Cigarette-Smoking Man.
Skinner was last seen in a cameo in the 2008 film "The X-Files: I Want to Believe".

Thematically similar to the Divergent franchise – in that children are tested at a young age and their place in society is determined given the results – British sci-fi film Frequencies plays out like an extended episode of Tales of the Unexpected crossed with the philosophical science of a film such as Darren Aronofsky’s Pi and/or The Fountain….
In a dystopian future, children’s ability to succeed in life is determined at a young age, based on their own personal ‘frequency’ which dictates just how lucky they will be. In the process of testing one particular group, it transpires that Marie (Laight) has an impossibly high frequency, making her the luckiest girl in the world. At the same testing, Zak »

Back in January, during the TCA Winter Tour, Fox teased that talks were under way to bring back the hit sci-fi series The X-Files for an Untitled X Files Reboot. The network confirmed last week that the show is indeed returning with a 6-episode event series. We know that original stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) are reprising their roles, but no other cast members are confirmed at this time. Series creator Chris Carter recently spoke with X-Files News, saying that he has plans to bring back the rest of the original cast, including Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes), and Robert Patrick (John Doggett).
"I have ideas for everyone. Their availability is subject to their regular paying jobs. Of course, I'd like to bring everyone possible back, but it's who's going to fit into the story and who's available."
The series also spawned two theatrical movies, »
For nine years, from 1993 through 2002, Friday was the night to stay home or at the least to make sure your favorite television recorder was programmed correctly.
I’m talking about The X-Files, created by Chris Carter and which starred then relatively unknown actors David Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, an Oxford-trained behavioral psychologist, and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, an M.D. specializing in forensic medicine. Together they investigated the so-called “X-Files” of the FBI: cases that involved crimes on the margins of “normal,” paranormal activities, and UFO goings-on.
It became the Fox (no pun intended) network’s highest rated show and won numerous awards over its original lifetimes, including 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award over its run; it also received nominations and wins from the Directors Guild, the Writers Guild the Screen Actors Guild, the Television Critics Association, and the Saturn Awards. »

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. »

Now that you've had time to digest the fact that Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are coming back in six brand-new episodes of The X-Files, let's answer some of the questions you've undoubtedly been having. Chris Carter, the show's executive producer and creator, revealed discussions about bringing The X-Files back first began in November and he's been thinking about the story pretty much ever since. While Carter told The Daily Beast there are no scripts yet, expect him to oversee them and work with past show veterans. As for when the show takes place, yes it follows the latest outing of Mulder and Scully, the second flick, The X-Files: I Want to Believe. "It'll be »
Hi, my name is Trace and I have only seen one episode of The X-Files. I know that is terrible, but when I was growing up I wasn’t allowed to watch it.

It’s official – The X-Files, the 90s phenomenon that ran for nine seasons, that helped launch the careers of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and made common phrases like “Trust no one” and “The truth is out there” is returning to television.
Fox are bringing back the saga after 13 years away from the small screen in a new six episode event series, to be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter. Anderson and Duchovny will reprise their roles as FBI agents Mulder and Scully.
The show, which reinvigorated the paranormal/sci-fi genre and spawned countless clones, was last seen on-screen with 2008’s feature film The X-Files: I Want To Believe, though numerous comic book outings have been released via Idw in recent years.

Just yesterday, news arrived that Fox was close to issuing a green-light for a revival of classic sci-fi series The X-Files, and now it’s official: the truth is still out there, and Mulder and Scully are making their way back to television to find it.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are both signed on to reprise their respective roles of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, characters they’ve been playing on-and-off since 1993 over the course of nine seasons and two films, in a six-part limited series. Series creator and executive producer Chris Carter is also returning in those same capacities, with production on the revival being eyed for this summer. No premiere date has been announced.
It’s expected that each episode will find Mulder and Scully investigating a different case. Carter recently stated:
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is »

Capping off days of incessant rumors and years of slowly percolating buzz, Fox made it official on Tuesday (March 24) morning: "The X-Files" is coming back to TV. The landmark sci-fi-tinged conspiracy drama, which ran 202 episodes on Fox between 1993 and 2002, will resume production in Summer 2015 on a six-episode event series. Fox will announce additional details, specifically a premiere date, later. For now, what we know is that the key pieces of the "X-Files" puzzle are all back, specifically creator and executive producer Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. "I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," Carter blurbs. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories." The formal announcement came courtesy of Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, who also shepherded the show in their days at 20th Century Fox TV. »

Back in January, we reported that Fox is planning a revival of The X-Files with original series creator Chris Carter. Today, TV Wise is reporting that the network is close to issuing a two-season order for the revival series, with original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to return. Nothing is set in stone yet, since talks are still ongoing, but the site's source says each season will be less than 10 episodes.
The report reveals the "short stack" order was decided on for two reasons, the first being story requirements set forth by series creator Chris Carter and the second being scheduling. It is believed that it would be easier to secure David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, both of whom are still very much in demand, with a shorter order. David Duchovny's new NBC show Aquarius is an off-cycle summer series, and production won't begin on Season 3 of »
