The X-Files is done. For now, hopefully. What's next? Is there anything ahead for Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson)? Warning, spoilers abound in our chat with The X-Files creator Chris Carter about the season finale of the drama's Fox revival, and what's to come should we get more episodes in the future. Things ended on a big cliffhanger: the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) had started to end the world with Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish) sort of under his thumb. She decided to side with him to save herself. Mulder was near death, confronting CSM and Scully was ... [Continua a leggere]

New pair of YA novels debuts Jan. 2017
X-Files fans will be able to add a new chapter to Mulder and Scully’s story with The X-Files Origins series, a pair of YA novels about 15-year-old Dana Scully and 17-year-old Fox Mulder. EW can exclusively announce the two new novels in The X-Files Origins series, Agent of Chaos and Devil’s Advocate. Each story is set in the spring of 1979, when serial murder, the occult, and government conspiracy were highlighted in the news. The books, acquired by Imprint/Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, follow Mulder and Scully as they experience life-changing events that set them o ... [Continua a leggere]
“I can tell you, almost without a doubt, we will come back.” That’s Chris Carter, the creator of “The X-Files,” who surprised viewers on Monday night by wrapping up the show’s highly rated, six-episode mini-season revival with a cliffhanger. With the world in the grip of a global plague and Agent Scully poised between distributing a vaccine and saving the life of her comrade, Agent Mulder, an apparent spacecraft appeared to bathe her in an electric blue light. And then… credits. It was the latest salvo in the ongoing arms race between ever-savvier ... [Continua a leggere]
Spoiler alert! Do not read this post unless you've seen The X-Files' finale, "My Struggle II."
The X-Files ended its revival with quite the cliffhanger. As the world fell apart around them—thanks to an outbreak of a mysterious disease, that was picking off all but a chosen few—Scully (Gillian Anderson) raced to save a dying Mulder (David Duchovny) with a vaccine that was adapted from the alien elements in her DNA. When she found him, she privately confided in Miller (Robbie Amell) that they might be too late: the only cure for Mulder could be their son, whom she gave up for adoption in 2002. Unfortunately for Scully, she didn't even have the chance to figure out where to g ... [Continua a leggere]
Joel McHale isn’t lowering anyone’s expectations for The X-Files’ season finale. “It’s going to be the greatest of all time,” McHale told EW. McHale, who counts himself a “huge” fan of the sci-fi series, returns in Monday’s finale as Tad O’Malley, the conservative Internet talk show host whose conspiracy theories had a hand in bringing Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back to the FBI. In anticipation of the finale, EW caught up with McHale to find out what else O’Malley has in store, why he thinks The X-Fil ... [Continua a leggere]
Storyboards, props, blueprints and scripts from the making of the current season of The X-Files are now on exhibit in Vancouver—just in time for the much-buzzed season finale on February 22. “X-Files: The Truth is Here (The Making of Season 10)” opened at Back Gallery Project on February 16 and runs until February 27. All the material in the exhibition comes directly from series creator and director Chris Carter, who is a longtime friend of Back Gallery Project owner Monica Reyes. “I’ve known him for a very long time—over 15 years,” Reyes tells Cana ...

“The X-Files” reboot has been a major success for Fox, but will there be more episodes after the event series wraps this upcoming Monday? While there are no firm plans at this time for a second round of episodes, with the ratings proof, Fox execs are undoubtedly discussing the possibility of ordering more episodes. Plus, the network has been promoting Monday’s finale as the “season finale” — not the “series finale.” “We said before it aired that we would love to do more, and we are over the moon with the performance. So far, the resp ... [Continua a leggere]
It may have been 14 years since The X-Files originally went off the air, but for TV fans, the show has never truly gone away. Through the years, The X-Files influence has been felt on many popular shows like The CW’s Supernatural and ABC’s Castle (the two shows have even shared key behind-the-scenes people with the Fox drama); CBS’ Person of Interest; and even a few Fox shows (the network which X-Files originated), like Sleepy Hollow and Fringe (which counted X-Files’ Darin Morgan as a consulting producer in its freshman year). Even Bones, another Fox sh ... [Continua a leggere]
‘The X-Files’ And Religion: Chris Carter Wants Us To Believe, But ‘Babylon’ Traffics In Muslim Stereotypes
In a world riddled with thousands of angry voices shouting over each other, how do we rise above the cacophony and try to listen? How do we overcome the hatred that cripples and divides society? How do we erase the image of New England-bred, Oxford-educated Fox Mulder sporting brass knuckles while re-enacting the video for “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” that’s now burned into our bleeding retinas? These are the questions that “Babylon,” Monday’s penultimate episode of “The X-Files” revival mini-series, attempts to answer — with limited degrees o ... [Continua a leggere]
In “Babylon,” a young Muslim man in Texas -- an apparent terrorist -- is involved in the suicide bombing of Ziggurat, a local art gallery displaying controversial imagery. This young man, Shiraz (Artin John) survives the deadly blast, but does not awake from a coma afterwards. This is a grave concern because he is the only person living with information about a terror cell operating in the area. Investigating the case, FBI agents Miller (Robbie Amell) and Einstein (Lauren Ambrose) seek the assistance of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) in communicating with t ...

They involve some dancing.
We already revealed that Monday’s episode of The X-Files will feature an appearance by fan-favorite characters the Lone Gunmen. They appear as part of what X-Files creator Chris Carter describes as “a presumed psychedelic hallucination.” That same apparent hallucination also sees Special Agent Mulder (David Duchovny) hitting the dance floor for a rather elaborate routine – set to Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart.” Carter wrote and directed the episode, and talked to us about that dance number and the episode’s special guest star ...

Gillian Anderson has never been busier – so why go back to the role that made her famous?
I’m 20 minutes early for my interview with Gillian Anderson, which is not as good an idea as it seems. She arrives in the bar of the North London hotel just minutes after I do and raises a perfect eyebrow to find me clutching a heap of scribbled notes that say things like Money! and Killers? and Duchovny. But then Anderson’s presence, I suspect, could make almost anyone feel untidy. Blonde, compact and minimally dressed in black and cream, she has all the cool self-possession and gravitas of Stella Gibson, the police inspector she plays in The Fall – who, as it turns o ...

Let Chris Carter explain.
On Monday, the X-Files revival welcomes a few fan-favorite characters from the original series. Surely you recall Byers, Langly, and Frohike, the conspiracy nuts collectively known as the Lone Gunmen? The trio proved so popular with fans of the original show that they actually got their own short-lived spin-off series, The Lone Gunmen. After the show’s cancellation, the characters returned in a season 9 episode of The X-Files. And … well, they died. So, how it is possible that Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, and Dean Haglund are back on The X-Files in ... [Continua a leggere]
In “Home Again,” Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigate the brutal murder of a HUD official, Joseph Cutler (Alessandro Juliani) who was attempting to forcibly relocate a group of homeless people in Philadelphia. His body was discovered… pulled apart…with his head discarded in a trash can. While Mulder pursues a lead involving a street artist, Scully is called back to Washington D.C. because of terrible personal news. Her mother, Margaret (Sheila Larken), has suffered a devastating heart attack and is near death. But efore slipping into un ... [Continua a leggere]
