new X-Files series

Details on Chris Carter‘s new X-Files series are as well-protected as the truth about some of the series’ obsessions. We do know a few things, however. The six-episode “event season” premieres in January 2016, and will feature Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprising the central roles of Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

Additionally, Mitch Pileggi is on hand to play FBI Assistant Director Skinner. And William B. Davis, who played Skinner’s one-time ally and one of the show’s primary antagonists, will reprise his role as the Cigarette Smoking Man.

So with more people coming back, fans might think it’s a shame to see only six new episodes. Duchovny may agree. He has long been a cheerleader for the continuation of the series on film, and he’s already saying he’d be game to do a second season. Read More »

Skinner X-Files

Guys named “Skinner” were an important part of the Fox lineup in the ’90s. Seymour Skinner has been a Simpsons mainstay since the earliest days, and on The X-Files Walter Skinner showed up towards the end of the first season, and steadily established himself as an important component of the X-Files formula. Now The X-Files is returning to TV for a new six-episode “event series,” and Mitch Pileggi has confirmed what we had hoped: Skinner will be back.   Read More »
