x-files box set

Update: Additional information on the set, including a full list of bonus features, a new picture of the packaging, and an official pre-order site, has arrived online.

The upcoming revival of The X-Files is an actual thing and not a figment of our collective imaginations. Yes, there is actually new X-Files material set to air on televisions that don’t exist entirely inside our minds. We know this because there are photos from the set and trailers online. However, we also know this because Fox is releasing a new Blu-ray box set collecting the entire original series and the collection’s box art has officially been revealed. It’s like they wanted to capitalize on our excitement and get us to purchase an expensive and grandiose object to celebrate our obsession!

Yep, they’ve got us. Check out the art for the X-Files box set and other details after the jump.

The Lone Gunmen returning to The X-Files

The revival of The X-Files coming to Fox in January just got a little more crowded with some familiar faces from the original run of the sci-fi series.

It’s a no-brainer that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, but otherwise the only other returning faces reported have been Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner and William B. Davis as Cigarette-Smoking Man. There have also been rumors of Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick returning as agents Monica Reyes and John Doggett, but it hasn’t been confirmed.

But now we have as close to official word as we can get that the trio known as The Lone Gunmen will also back back for The X-Files revival. Find out more about The Lone Gunmen returning to The X-Files after the jump! Read More »

Kumail Nanjiani joining The X-Files

For fans of The X-Files, the return of their favorite series in January of 2016 is already fantastic enough. But one massive fan of the sci-fi series that launched in the 90s is even more excited, because he actually gets to be part of the revival with Mulder and Scully.

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani has been making waves with a series regular role on the HBO comedy series Silicon Valley, but he’s also a very successful stand-up comedian with a podcast called The X-Files Files, which runs through each episode of the series one-by-one, talking about it with various guests from comedians to bloggers. Now he’ll have a small role in one of the episodes of The X-Files event series coming next year.
