We finally get an official look at the new X-File courtesy of Entertainment weekly (via /Film). I say finally, as if its been a long wait, but to be honest, it seems like only yesterday that Gillian Anderson was on the Nerdist Podcast teasing the chances of a new run of episodes and kicking off the hashtag #XFiles2015. Check out the images below…
Don’t get too excited about the #XFiles2015 hashtag because we have to wait until 2016 to be able to binge on our favourite conspiracy show.
Head over to /Film for their take on things, but what I’m getting from this is that this aint “Agents” Mulder and Scully investigating spooky shit, but civilians Mulder and Scully who have been hired by a TV show to (hosted by Joel McHale’s character) to look into some unexplained stories.
If it is the case that our favourite investigators aren’t associated with the FBI in the new show, then it adds an interesting weight to the claims that Agents Doggett and Reyes (played by Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish respectively) will be returning in at least cameos. So are Dogged and Reyes still on the X-Files? Will the cross paths with Mulder and Scully whilst investigating the same case? Could this be Mulder’s way back to the FBI and back to the basement full of dusty boxes? Only time will tell.
What we do know is that AD Skinner will be returning, played as always by Mitch Pileggi. This i understand as Skinner was still at the FBI in the last movie I Want To Believe. More surprising to me is the inclusion of the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B Davis) who SPOILERS died in his last appearance on the show. Even more surprising is the rumour that the Lone Gunman may return, which would indicate a flashback of some sort as these guys categorically bought the farm in their final appearance.
One rumoured storyline, according to the /Film piece, is that Annet Mahrendu’s character will believe herself to be the victim of regular abductions at the hands of aliens. Could this be the case Mulder and Scully are hired to investigate for the TV show?
What do you think about the new images of X-File Revival? Are you excited for the show? Will Mulder and Scully be returning to the FBI? Have your say in the comments below.
