The X-Files was the longest-running science fiction series in U.S. television history. The show spanned nine seasons and 202 episodes from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox. Great! In March 2015, it was announced that the show would return as a miniseries, with David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Annabeth Gish, William B. Davis and Mitch Pileggi reprising their roles. Fans and followers are excited! It will premiere on January 24, 2016! Be happy! Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are coming!
The first episode is titled ‘My Struggle’ (the English translation of Hitler’s manifesto, ‘Mein Kampf’). We’ll see that Scully’s still in medicine, and that she and Mulder have broken off their romantic relation. In fact, Mulder is living in a cabin in the woods, and the old X-Files office in the FBI building’s basement has Mulder’s ‘I Want to Believe’ poster on the dusty floor. What will happen next? What do you expect from The X-Files?
According to Chris Carter, only the first and sixth episodes are heavy on conspiracy mythology. The second episode, directed and written by James Wong, is a welcome step up from the first. And the third (only three were made available for screening), is a comic horror episode by Darin Morgan.
The six episodes were filmed in Vancouver, B.C.
