Earlier this month, the first image of David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully in the X-Files revival landed online thanks to the show’s twitter feed. Now here come some better quality looks at the pair – plus fellow cast members Annet Mahendru and Joel McHale courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
There are also a few fresh details about the new, six-episode run bringing the conspiracy-investigating, monster-tackling duo back to our screens next year, including the fact that we reunite with Mulder when he’s in a dark place, but that Scully’s a little more settled, as usual. “I like where we find Mulder and Scully in their relationship,” Anderson tells the magazine. “I also like the area of zeitgeist that we step in to. It’s on point and raises some very interesting issues. And question marks.”
According to series creator Chris Carter, back for this new limited run, the show will tackle our post-9/11 world. “A lot has happened since then. A lot of rollback of rights and liberties in the name of our protection. We’re being spied on now, we’re being lied to — all things that, for me, remind me of when I grew up, which was right around Watergate. I think we’re in similar and much more dire times right now.”
But possibly even more exciting than that is learning who has been writing and producing the episodes alongside Carter. Returning to duty are James Wong, Glen Morgan and, thrillingly, Darin Morgan, responsible for some of the series most memorable, quirky episodes including Humbug and Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose. His episode for the new series? Mulder And Scully Meet The Were-Man. Cannot. Wait.
