Entertainment Weekly



In one week, Geekdom will descend upon San Diego for Comic-Con. But one of pop cultures most beloved franchises and one of 2015s most anticipated TV events wont be in attendance: Foxs revival of The X-Files, the seminal sci-fi series starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson that gave us nightmares with names like The Flukeman, introduced us to terms like mythology episodes, and taught us the practice of modern fandom. (Shipping. Theorizing. Griping about finale fulfillment.) Bummer that creator Chris Carter and his cast currently wrapping production on the first installment in the six-episode miniseries couldnt come to Nerd Mardi Gras to tease the story they plan to tell. But the truth is out there, so EW decided to go to them and pry loose some secrets.

On an abandoned farm on the outskirts of Vancouver B.C., we found paranormal detectives Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson) investigating the curious case of a possible alien abductee (played by Annet Mahendru of The Americans) at the behest of a most curious ally, the host of a conservative talk show (Communitys Joel McHale). Of course, the last time we saw our heroes (the 2008 feature film The X-Files: I Want To Believe), Mulder and Scully were out of the bizarre-adventures business. He was living on the fringe, she was a doctor working at a Catholic hospital; they were sometimes lovers who just wanted the weird world to leave them alone. Much has changed for them since then.

Mulders not in a great place, says Duchovny, looking shabby in gray tee, shoes without shoelaces, and much stubble. Hes wearing bad jeans, so you can just extrapolate from my wardrobe. Hes in a dark, dark place.

Scullys looking more put-together in a skirt suit and high heels. I like where we find Mulder and Scully in their relationship, says Anderson, adding that shes equally engaged by the political resonance of the story Chris Carter has conceived for the revival. I also like the area of zeitgeist that we step in to. Its on point and raises some very interesting issues. And question marks.

Carter whose original series tapped into the anxious strains of 1990s culture says the new series is inspired by new century concerns. The X-Files ended right after 9/11, says Carter. A lot has happened since then. A lot of rollback of rights and liberties in the name of our protection. Were being spied on now, were being lied to all things that, for me, remind me of when I grew up, which was right around Watergate. I think were in similar and much more dire times right now.

The new X-Files isnt all scary political allegory. In addition to a hot take on the shows conspiracy mythology, fans will get monster-of-the-week episodes from Carter and three other key writers from the original series, James Wong, Glen Morgan, and Darin Morgan, whose inspired, idiosyncratic scripts from back in the day (Clyde Bruckmans Final Repose; Jose Chungs From Outer Space) earned him a cult following. The title of his revival offering: Mulder and Scully Meet The Were-Man. And sorry, internet, but youre wrong: The second episode, entitled Home Again, wont be a sequel to the infamously queasy horror opus Home, a lunatic love story about deformed, inbred children and the limbless mother they keep under their bed.

While you can expect to see some old faces (including Mitch Pileggi as FBI boss Skinner and William B. Davis as the nefarious Cigarette Smoking Man), dont expect to see the same old monsters. Were not going to reboot any of the old favorites, although it was something we all thought about, says Carter. These are all brand new stories. We hope to scare you in brand new ways.

The New-Files, Declassified Theyre heeere. Its been 13 years since we last saw Mulder and Scully investigating little green men and tangling with Cigarette Smoking Man on TV. EW made first contact with the revival as the cameras rolled, and weve got the intel and photos to prove it.
Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly, July 3, 2015
THEY ARRIVE BY limo, traveling a bumpy road winding through wild territory. They exit the car looking unmistakably themselves, and not. Hes missing his suit. Shes missing some red in her hair. They are older, of course, but time has only distinguished them, not diminished them. Theyve arrived at the home of a woman living on the fringes of society to investigate exactly the type of mystery that made them icons of an earlier era. More than a decade after The X-Files ended, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are about to be reintroduced to the world all over again
When the phone in Gillian Andersons pocket goes off, ruining the shot. She apologizes, David Duchovny laughs, and director Chris Carter sends them back into the car for a do-over.
Lets begin again too. Its the sixth day of shooting the next chapter in the saga that is The X-Files, the seminal sci-fi franchise that wrapped its nine-season run in 2002 and will return as a six-episode event series in late January. (Dont call it a reboot. They hate the word reboot here.) The premiere, set in the present, finds Mulder and Scully working the bizarre-adventures beat once again, this time at the behest of a politically conservative talk-show host played by Communitys Joel McHale. Apparently, his devoted audience includes a woman named Sveta (Annet Mahendru of The Americans) who lives in the sticks and holds to the belief that she is routinely snatched and probed by aliens. In the second coming of The X-Files, the truth is still out there.
The only oppressive extraterrestrial force evident today is an unseasonably hot sun beating down on the set, which is a derelict cottage on an abandoned farm outside Vancouver. As the action moves inside the house, the stars struggle to stifle heat-induced yawns as they work through a scene thats particularly challenging for Anderson. Svetas story echoes much of Scullys own historyabduction, embryo harvesting, assorted alien-related body horrorand Anderson has to suggest as much with active listening and meaningful glances toward Duchovny. I hate to ask this because I really dont want to, but can I do one more? asks Anderson, baking in a dark skirt suit and a wig glued tightly to her head. She cools herself with two handheld electric fans, then dives back into work.
Still, despite the swelter, the characters that made Duchovny and Anderson famous radiate easily from them. Mulder: always the believer, open to exotic possibilities. Scully: the scientist, wired for proof. At one point, McHales slickly suited cable anchor explains the concept of memory implants to Mulder and Scully. As if they need it. Thank you, says Duchovny, nailing Mulders deadpan sarcasm. Scully, drolly clinical: Were familiar with the syndrome.
During a break, Duchovny, Anderson, and McHale decamp to a shady spot in a thicket of trees, where Nelson, Andersons French bulldog, is waiting for her. The rapport between Duchovny and Anderson is old-friends intimate. It feels like we never stopped doing this, she says of their reunion. Like it was last week, he adds. After some blue banter about Ghengis Khan and Carrot Top, the conversation turns red. Apparently fans have been reacting to paparazzi photos of the stars at work by critiquing Scullys crimson locks. It seems theyre not crimson enough for some.
So this is a meme? asks Duchovny.
Its a meme.
Congratulations.
Thanks, says Anderson, whose impossible-to-tell wig looks strawberry blond to this reporters eyes. Its getting a little redder.
Nobodys asked about Joels wig, says Duchovny.
Im wearing a merkin, quips McHale.
At least they can take heart in knowing that The X-Files still drives fans wiggy after all these years. Among the shows many legaciesfacilitating the geek takeover of mainstream pop; stage-setting todays showrunner auteurismis how it took TVs ability to cultivate the relationship between story and audience to dynamic new levels. Carter certainly gave people a lot to chew on. Inspired by trippy creep shows (The Twilight Zone; the Night Stalker TV movies) and mystery-driven cinema (The Silence of the Lambs), and informed by his Watergate-forged skepticism and spiritual yearning, Carters unique blend of police procedural, conspiracy thriller, sci-fi horror, and existential angst connected with genre obsessives and adventurous viewers everywhere. Most every episode was its own smart and stylish mini creature feature. Liver-eating mutants. Paranoia-inflicting parasites. Psychotic clones. Giving the series epic sweep was an ongoing emotionally charged mystery with an intricate backstory involving a complex plot by aliens to colonize the planet. Over time, The X-Files became a mass audience hit and a pop sensation. Mulder and Scully were outsider heroes working within a corrupt government, and their questing to expose truth and squelch the apocalypse resonated with the alt-culture vibe and premillennial angst of the 1990s. Their increasingly intimate bondprogressing from respectful colleagues to trusted allies to lovers late in the seriesmade for a stirring representation of male-female friendship.
The X-Files bloomed during the pre-DVR era and the dawn of Web-enhanced fandom. In season 1, Carters writers used Delphi, an early Internet service, to gauge viewer reaction to episodes. In fact, a key episode, Beyond the Sea (see sidebar, page 28), was inspired by Delphi posters complaining about Scullys continued skepticism in the face of so much certifiable paranormal hoo-ha. Fans also used website chat rooms to theorize about the mythology and debate whether Mulder and Scully should risk their platonic ideal with a close encounter of the sexy kind. X-Files 1.0 taught us 21st-century fandom; it showed us how to ship a show. X-Files 2.0 will be engaged by the fullness of the interactive viewing culture that it kick-started. Tumblrs. Recaps. GIFs. Of course, it will be judged by it, too. Can The X-Files thrill us anew? Can it capture the zeitgeist as it did before? Your Twitter will tell you. Immediately.
At least one hardcore X-Files fan is already satisfied. Joel McHale used to watch the show with his then girlfriend, now wife. He dug the science fiction. She dug the rapport between the leads. When the offer came, I thought, Are they sure? Its not a prank? Because if it is, that would be very mean, because I love the show, says McHale. So believe me, when Im on set, and theres Dana Scully and Fox Mulder? Mind. Blown.
THE X-FILES REVIVAL may be a dream come true for fans, but its not the afterlife its stars envisioned for Mulder and Scully. They wanted to make movies. Andersonwho relocated to London and currently stars in the final season of NBCs Hannibalhoped for a trilogy that could give fans better closure. The series may have lasted nine years, but it petered out creatively. Not helping the cause: too much complex mythology to resolve, and not enough Duchovny, who limited his presence in the last two seasons following a dispute with Fox over profit sharing. Its always nice to go out with a bang, says Anderson, and for whatever reason, we didnt go out with a bang. In 2008, Fox released The X-Files: I Want to Believe, a zero-mythology, monster-of-the-week episode writ big-screen large. It attempted to distill The X-Files to its essence (Mulder, Scully, creepiness) for the sake of attracting fans and newcomers. It felt like X-Files lite. Made for a reported $30 million, the film grossed $68 million worldwide. Fox wasnt lining up to do the next one, says Duchovny, who spent seven years starring on Showtimes risqué dramedy Californication and currently headlines NBCs Aquarius. It seemed maybe The X-Files was dead, at least as a movie franchise.
Yet none of them gave up interest in telling more X-Files stories. Duchovny led the charge back to television. Im acclimated to the 12-episode world, I know that its fantastic, he says. The best things are happening on television anyway. Why not just come back and do a severely limited run on television and see what happens? Last year, with Californication coming to an end, Duchovny says he reached out to Carter, who was game, and Anderson, who needed to warm to the idea. I do a lot of TV, more TV than Id like to do, says the actress, who also stars with Jamie Dornan on the British serial-killer thriller The Fall, which will shoot its third season this fall. I love film, so its important to have that in my life to balance all the TV out. But Foxs support of event series impressed her (she cites 24: Live Another Day), and a shot at better closure pulled at her. It seems to be the right time for it, she says.
We have honestly been having conversations with Chris about this for a very long time, says Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group. Bringing back The X-Files is a huge, undeniable event, and in terms of future development, were interested in things that fall into that category. After several months of negotiations, The X-Files was a go as a six-episode series. (There might have been more episodes if not for limited actor availability.)
So what kind of story to expect from this event? Carter & Co. are being stingy with the secrets, but heres the big picture: The new series is set in the present and reintroduces the shows mythology, but reinterprets it from a bleak political perspective. The X-Files ended right after 9/11, says Carter. A lot has happened since then. A lot of rollback of rights and liberties in the name of our protection. Were being spied on now, were being lied toall things that, for me, go back to a time when I grew up, which was right around Watergate. I think were in similar and actually much more dire times right now. Spotted in the pocket of his directors chair: the SeptemberOctober 2009 issue of Utne Reader, with Bill O'Reilly on the cover and the headline Post-Pundit America: The End of Attack Politics. That might offer some insight into McHales conservative talk-show host, wholl appear in at least two episodes. Or maybe Carter is just really behind on his Utne Reader.
Still classified: exact status updates for former FBI agents and frustrated lovers Mulder and Scully. When last seen in The X-Files: I Want to Believe, Scully was a doctor and Mulder was a lone wolf, and while the film ended with them sharing a kiss, their future as a couple was TBD. Expect to see that both have evolvedor devolvedsince then. We can tell you that theyre not living together, and that Mulder has become convinced that the alien conspiracy might not be precisely what he thought it was. His obsession has taken a toll. Hes wearing bad jeans, so you can just extrapolate from my wardrobe. Hes in a dark, dark place, says Duchovny, who holds out hope of a return-to-form makeover. The classic Mulder is not this. He belongs in a suit. Will Mulder be popping his favorite stakeout snack of sunflower seeds? Yeah, Ive heard rumors of their existence. Im sure they will come my way at some point.
Anderson is equally cryptic about the direction Carter has charted. I like where we find Mulder and Scully in their relationship, she says. I also like the area of zeitgeist that we step into. Its on point and raises some very interesting issues. And question marks. Carter says that episode 4 will deal with one of Scullys most distinctive character features: her religious faith, a source of conflict with Mulder. (Mulder can believe in many things, but he has serious doubts about God.)
And not to belabor the hair, but it really is a sore subject for Andersonbecause its really painful to wear. Yes, she is wearing a wig for the revival. Anderson says she began losing her hair due to the wear and tear of her recent characters. She wanted to dye her hair red for Scully"I was really looking forward to it!but her hairdresser advised against it. "I was told that if I went red that would be fine, but getting back to blond I would go bald. So unfortunately, it is a wig, she says. And oh my God, its like wearing a vise on your head. Every day I have a whopping headache. I want the fans to know Im suffering for the red!
Mulder and Scullys longtime boss Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) is slated to return, as will their longtime adversary Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), although thatll take some explaining: The cancerous bogeyman was blown away in the series finale. Carter will write and direct three episodes, including the premiere and the finale, both heavy mythology stories. The remaining three will be handled by veterans of the first series who were instrumental in shaping and expanding the storytelling voice of the show. James Wong (American Horror Story) and Glen Morgan (Intruders)who worked as a team back in the day and created some of the shows best-known supporting characters, including the Lone Gunmenwill each write and direct their own episodes. (Sorry, Internet, but youre wrong: The second episode, titled Home Again, wont be a sequel to the infamously queasy season 4 Morgan/Wong opus Home, a lunatic love story about deformed, inbred children and the limbless mother they keep under their bed.)
Rounding out the brain trust is Darin Morgan, Glens brother, whose meta-witty scripts earned him a cult following and the shows only writing Emmy. The title of his new episode: Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster. Carter also invited X-Files alumni Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) and Frank Spotnitz, who is currently producing the upcoming Amazon drama The Man in the High Castle. Both passed due to work commitments.
One pressure everyone is trying not to sweat: expectations. The cast and crew plan on tuning out the noise (and going radio-silent themselves) for the remainder of the shoot. If the revival is a hit, there could be more, but no ones talking about it. Yet. I cant imagine waiting this long again, says Duchovny. But you know, it all depends on the reception of [this] show. Blockbuster success is far from certain. Last year, Foxs 12-episode revival of 24 averaged 9.5 million viewers, down 18 percent from its series average. But The X-Files will get some support from the NFLthe premiere is scheduled to air Jan. 24, immediately following the NFC championship game. Citing the enduring passion of original fans and newer ones whove discovered the show on DVD and other platforms, Foxs Walden says, It feels like theres an entire audience of viewers who are ready for something new here. Andersons dream scenario would be to duplicate one specific aspect of the shows original success. I know this is completely fantastical thinking, she says, but what if this show resparked the whole appointment-television-watching thing? Where actually people watched it live with friends? Not on TiVo, not on the Internet, not on laptops, but everybody together, at the same time. Wouldnt that be cool?
