I will admit it: I have been sitting on tonight's episode of The X-Files for a week, dying to talk about it with someone. So when I got the chance to interview Kristen Cloke and Shannon Hamblin, the writers of this week's amazing "Rm9sbG93ZXJz," I got a little excited. "Rm9sbG93ZXJz," which translates to "Followers" in Base64 code, is one of the more unique episodes of The X-Files. When Mulder (David Duchovny) doesn't tip the robot staff after a sushi dinner date with Scully (Gillian Anderson), the machines rise against them. The episode, brilliantly directed by Glen ...

David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson discuss the return of The X-Files

LOS ANGELES — While other TV shows come and go, the science-fiction drama “The X-Files” created by Chris Carter has returned after a long hiatus that followed a long television run. Starring David Duchovny (as FBI special agent Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (as FBI special agent Dana Scully), the TV series, which originally premiered on September 10, 1993, returned for an 11th season of 10 episodes, with the season premiering at the beginning of this year. We were able to talk to Duchovny, 57, and Anderson, 49, recently and they share with us their thoughts and feelings ... [Continua a leggere]

EXCLUSIVE: David Duchovny On Gillian Anderson's 'X-Files' Exit: ‘I Can’t Imagine It Without Scully’

With Gillian Anderson, aka FBI Agent Dana Scully, announcing she’ll be departing The X-Files universe at the end of the current season and showrunner Chris Carter considering continuing without her, everyone’s a little unsure of what to expect moving forward, including fellow lead actor, David Duchovny. Speaking with The Music in the lead up to his debut Australian tour, the US actor opened up on the subject, stating he couldn’t "imagine the show without Mulder and Scully". "I love the people that I’ve worked with; I love Gillian and Chris and I want them to be doing ... [Continua a leggere]


Over the span of The X-Files' 24-years of existence, actor Mitch Pileggi has embodied the role of Agent Mulder and Agent Scully's gruff, emotionally reserved boss, FBI Assistant Director Walter Sergei Skinner. Aside from the knowledge that he was in Vietnam and almost died, that he was married once, and that his relationship with his X-Files agents can at best be described as "complicated," Skinner remains largely a mystery. Even Pileggi was admittedly mock-grousing in Season 10 that it would be nice to know more about his character. Luckily, Chris Carter's assistant and X ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files creator Chris Carter on equal pay, fake news, and the ultimate Mulder and Scully plot twist

Do X-Files fans still want to believe? The paranormal US drama series, which partnered Gillian Anderson’s sceptic Scully with David Duchovny’s more open-minded Mulder, was an intrinsic part of nineties pop culture. In its heyday, it could be terrifying, warmly funny – with that famous Anderson-Duchovny chemistry at its heart – and brilliantly bizarre, often all at once. It came to a temporary end in 2002 after nine seasons, spawned a rather disappointing 2008 film, and then dramatically returned in 2016, along with its leads, for a six-part mini-series. The revival hit ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files' Chris Carter interview: 'The X-Files has more life in it – with or without Gillian Anderson'

The X-Files creator talks to Digital Spy about season 11 and the possibility of season 12.

After stumbling back on to our screens with season 10, The X-Files has hit the ground running with season 11. The US is four episodes in to what may well be the last ever run of Chris Carter's paranormal series, with lead actress Gillian Anderson swearing that this is it for her. The UK gets the season premiere tonight (February 5) So Digital Spy got on the phone with Chris to ask him all about re-opening The X-Files, writing FBI conspiracies in the age of Donald Trump, and what Gillian's departure means for the future of the show. Here's what he had to say. How much fun has it been to have ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson: ‘I always look long-term at relationships – as long as there is a back door’

She has a reputation for being aloof (which she denies), complicated relationships (with both sexes) and an onscreen chemistry with her X-Files co-star (that still has fans guessing). Who is the real Gillian Anderson?

Ask Gillian Anderson a simple question and you get a simple answer. For example, why – after a quarter of a century playing Agent Dana Scully – is she now leaving The X-Files? “Because.” She leaves the single word hanging in the air. It is a complete sentence, not the beginning of one. She softens the finality of it with a quirky, lopsided smile. This is Anderson to a T – accountable to no one, enigmatic, slightly abrasive, yet captivating and very likeable. So there you have it, the inside story: “Because.” Filling in the gaps around this word, ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files, Season 11, Episode 5 Recap: It's A Whole Life

“It’s a whole life,” says FBI Special Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as she studies the belongings of recently deceased teenager Jackson Van De Kamp (Miles Robbins), apparently felled by a self-inflicted gunshot wound after murdering his parents. Not his real parents, mind you. It’s eventually proven via DNA test that Jackson was adopted and that he is actually Scully’s child—ostensibly with her professional and occasional romantic partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), though more likely the result of a eugenics experiment conducted on her by Mulder&rsq ...

Interview: David Duchovny Chats About Music, Writing, and New X-Files

I had the great good fortune to speak with David Duchovny, our favorite brooding special agent, earlier this month in NYC. You might not know that Duchovny is releasing his second album, “Every Third Thought,” on February 9, and that his third fiction novel, Miss Subways, will be out in early May. Given his Ivy League background and writing/directing credits, are you really that surprised that Duchovny is a bit of a renaissance man these days? I stopped by the NYC listening party for “Every Third Thought” and caught up with David ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files Writer Breaks Down William's Heart-Wrenching Return

[Warning: The following contains spoilers for The X-Files' latest episode, "Ghouli." Read at your own risk!]

After all the teases, speculation and build up, The X-Files re-introduced Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully's (Gillian Anderson) son William in Wednesday's episode. When the agents investigate a case in which two teenage girls attacked each other thinking they had each been fighting a creature known as Ghouli, they quickly discover the case is far more complicated than they ever imagined when they learn both girls had been dating Jackson Van De Kamp — a high schooler who shares the same last name of the couple who adopted William all those years ago. Unfortunately, before th ... [Continua a leggere]

'The X-Files' EP James Wong Breaks Down That Unexpected 'Ghouli' Reunion

Spoiler alert! Do not read this piece unless you've watched the January 31st episode of X-Files.

After nearly 16 years, Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) finally reunited with William (Miles Robbins), who is now known as Jackson Van De Kamp... albeit with a very X-Files twist. The duo wound up back in their son's orbit thanks to an open X-file and Scully's mysterious vision, but things quickly turned tragic when it appeared he had died. However, it turned out that William's powers were greater than anyone anticipated: He was able to project images to other people to manipulate their perception of what was going on, thus tricking everyone into thinking he was ...

SPOILER WARNING: Tonight's episode of The X-Files, "Ghouli," discussed at length below.

Fans of The X-Files know that the writing team of James Wong and Glen Morgan has produced some of the creepiest episodes of the series. "Squeeze," "Tooms," "Home" -- they all rank as series classics, which are still referenced with reverence today. The duo actually left to create their own series, Space: Above and Beyond (1996), but remained in the world of Chris Carter shows, writing episodes of The X-Files until 1997, and for the series, Millennium and The Lone Gunmen. Wong and Morgan also started the Final Destination franchise, co-writing the first and third films, with Wong directing the ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-Files' Scribe Darin Morgan Reveals Which Homage Didn't Make the Final Cut

Warning! This post contains spoilers for the Wednesday, January 24 episode of The X-Files. Do not read this until you've watched the hour.

The X-Files took on the Mandela Effect and President Trump (via a Trump-like alien) in Wednesday’s “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat.” But thanks to Reggie Something (Brian Huskey) insisting he was really Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder’s (David Duchovny) long-lost partner, the hour ended up being, in many ways, a love letter to the series itself. As Reggie explained his “real” connection to the dynamic duo, viewers got an alternate take on things: new opening credits with Reggie and Reggie in the background (adding snark) to memorable scenes throughout ...

The X-Files universe may be one full of mystery and uncertainty, but there's at least one thing about it that is crystal clear: When writer, and now, director Darin Morgan's name is on an episode, audiences can always expect a weird and wonderful ride. Morgan's first contribution to the series was the story for Season 2 episode, "Blood," and since then he's written ace installments like Season 3 episodes, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose," and "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space,'" and arguably the best episode of Season 10, "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster". Morgan's episodes have a ten ... [Continua a leggere]

'The X-Files' postmortem: 'Plus One' director Kevin Hooks talks bringing sexy back to the show

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the “Plus One” episode of The X-Files.

Phew — is it hot in here or is it just us? This week’s Chris Carter-penned X-Files installment, “Plus One,” was one of the steamiest in the show’s history … even though Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) didn’t do anything more on camera than cuddle. In the midst of an investigation into a strange case of murderous doppelgängers, the paranormal investigators provide an overdue update on their complicated romantic status by sharing an intimate night together in their hotel room. Initially occupying separate beds, an e ... [Continua a leggere]
