The X-Files made is want to believe back in the 90s. And now a generation later, we still want to believe.
Here’s one for the X-Philes out there. I’m one of them! And January is going to be a hell of a month as we are reminded that we want to believe and we have to trust no one with a new season of The X-Files. Especially because it’s the original and irreplaceable FBI duo that started it all, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully in the upcoming event series which will encompass a mixture of stand-alone investigative episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.
And here’s a little “Show and Not Tell” tease from Gillian Anderson about the series:
I’m pretty sure that after having stepped away from it for so long, they’re excited to get back into this world and show both longtime fans and new fans some exciting and crazy stuff.
