Mulder and Scully are back! Fox has released an official Untitled X-Files Revival set photo, giving us a first look at David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in action as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The 6-episode revival series began shooting this week in Vancouver. Also in the photo tweeted out by the network, we see Chris Carter watching from his director's chair. This arrives after the cast and crew shared their first X-Files set photos earlier in the week.
The Untitled X-Files Revival will continue to follow FBI special agents Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena. The first episode in over 14 years will premiere on Fox immediately following the NFC Championship Game. Take a look as David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as the legendary Mulder and Scully.

While there is still precious little we know about the Untitled X Files Reboot in terms of story, we do know that it will stay in line with the original The X-Files series, keeping the mythology intact. The show will get a modernization in terms of where we're at as a society. And it will be a mix of serialized episodes with the traditional 'Monster of the Week'. We also know that we'll be getting a total of 6 new episodes, and that original stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will return as FBI agents Scully and Mulder. Appearing on Late Show with David Letterman, David Duchovny went onto reveal that at least two more original characters will be returning as well.
Thirteen years after the original series run, Fox has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of The X Files, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.
The X-Files originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases - "X-Files" - for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, The X-Files is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.Read More
David Duchovny's Denise Bryson was summoned to Twin Peaks in Season 2 to investigate her old friend Dale Cooper. Dale had known Bryson when she was known as Dennis Bryson, but, after going undercover as a transvestite, Bryson learned he was much more comfortable as a woman, and became Denise Bryson. Of course, we have no confirmation that David Duchovny will return, and if he does, how large or small his role will be.
During a Q&A session last month, Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) confirmed that she will be back for the new episodes, along with Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs). It's worth noting that Laura Palmer told Dale Cooper that she will see him again in 25 years, and this new series will debut in 2016, 25 years after the original show went off the air in 1991. Both Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson are dead, but there is speculation that a version of Laura may remain in the Black Lodge Red Room. Would you like to see David Duchovny come back as Denise Bryson?Read More
During the TCAs this past weekend, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman confirmed that talks are happening for an X-Files series reboot. Original series creator Chris Carter already hinted that he was involved with the project, and this past summer Gillian Anderson said she'd be down for The X-Files 3 movie. Now, speaking with USA Today, David Duchovny reveals that he is ready to return as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder as well. Only, he won't be able to do a full season.
The X-Files had a good run from 1993 to 2002. David Duchovny stared as Agent Mulder, an FBI agent who believes in the paranormal. Gillian Anderson starred as his skeptic partner agent Dana Scully. The X-Files franchise also includes two big screen movies, 1998's The X-Files and 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe. There has also long been talk of an The X-Files 3, which isn't out of the question, even if the The X-Files reboot does happen.Read More
