It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since we were introduced to spooky Fox Mulder and the enigmatic Dana Scully on "The X-Files". Now, ten years after the show ended and five years after the last movie, fans are still waiting for some real closure to the adventures of Mulder and Scully.
That wait might be over -- kind of.
Both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are set to make an appearance this weekend at the 2013 San Diego International Comic-Con at a special panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of "The X-Files". The panel will be held on Thursday, July 18 at 3:30 PT in Ballroom 20.
The panel will also include series creator Chris Carter as well as several other former writers and/or producers including Vince Gilligan, David Amann, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban and Jim Wong.
In addition to the 20th anniversary panel, the dynamic duo will also take part in another panel introducing a new comic series, being labeled the 10th season of the sci-fi cult hit series.
The big question on every fan's mind though has to be whether or not we'll ever get to see that big alien invasion movie that Chris Carter has been promising since the show ended. Technically, at least according to the Smoking Man's calendar, that invasion should have begun in December of 2012. Maybe he was off -- just like the Mayans?
Either way, a 20th anniversary panel and a new comic line would be the perfect way to set things up. If not, it will be fantastic to see David, Gillian, CC, and company back together again.
The truth is still out there, folks.
The 2013 San Diego International Comic-Con runs from July 17-21. For a complete rundown of scheduled events, check out the SDCC website.
