Posted at The Den of Geek, Allair’s in-depth article spans the time from when the series first aired to current times.

x-files revivalStunning Artwork has appeared for The X-Files Revival!  It is reminiscent of past “X-Files” artwork, with a little “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” mixed in.

Doubtless fans who attend the New York Comic Con early screening of the first episode in the revival will see a large scale version.

As promised, no spoilers on this newspage so I will not be reviewing the screening.

anderson and gish final sceneFilming has wrapped in Canada for the upcoming X-Files Revival.  I made a vow that there would be no spoilers on this newspage, and I hope I have lived up to the promise.  So far, the news is kept to guest appearances.

However, I thought you might enjoy seeing Scully and Reyes together.  This is purportedly a photo from their last appearance together.

January 2016 seems like too long to wait!



Sheila_LarkenThe number of confirmed returning cast continues to grow.

Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis are returning in their seminal roles as Walter Skinner and the Cigarette Smoking Man.

Mama Scully will appear in The X-Files Revival!  Sheila Larken, the actress who portrayed Scully’s mother, is confirmed for at least one episode of the mini-series.

Also returning are the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).


X-Files-Fight-the-Future-hqMatt Allair of X-Files Lexicon recently interviewed La-La Land Records’ Mike Joffe.

La-La Land Records published music from Mark Snow, the brilliant composer of music from The X-Files, Millennium, and more.

Alas, no word is forthcoming on whether the company will have music from the X-Files Revival.

Annabeth Gish and Jeff Gulka are both listed on IMDB as returning for The X-Files Revival.

Gish appeared as Monica Reyes during the time that David Duchovny was notably absent in season 8 and 9.

Gulka starred as Gibson Praise, a prodigy sought by aliens and government alike.

Being The X-Files, fans know that there are always red herrings about any production, so knowing things for fact can be difficult.  But here is what we know so far:

1.  The 6 episode revival will launch with a two-night event on January 24th and 25th of 2016, before moving to its regular Monday night 8pm time-slot the following week.

2. Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong will write for the revival.

3. Mitch Pileggi is confirmed to appear, as is William B. Davis.

6. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson still have amazing chemistry.  They appeared together recently to promote David Duchovny’s album and shared kisses, hugs, and lots of smiles.

8/2015 Author’s Note: I find that as time grows closer to The X-Files Revival, I am reluctant to publish ‘spoilers’.  Even though this is will leave the XFU newspage relatively void of new articles for a while, I pledge to keep this page spoiler free.  Thank you for your support.  If you would like to read spoilers, please go to our forums where speculation is always given!  –> xfilesuniverse.com/forum


Every day my phone buzzes with updates for The X-Files Revival.  Every day (OK, multiple times per day) I check to see the latest developments.   I want real news, like whether Mitch Pileggi is confirmed or if The Lone Gunmen will return, or even if Scully will have red hair in those six episodes.

Here are some links so you, too, can stay up to date.  Click and bookmark!

IMDB has a page for “Untitled X Files Reboot“.  Interesting to note that they have Gibson Praise and Eric Hosteen cast labeled as rumored, but Mitch Pileggi (Skinner), William B Davis (CSM), Annabeth Gish (Reyes) and Robert Patrick  (Doggett) appear without that designation.

Instagram: fox.com/the-x-files is a blank page at present but one would expect photos to add soon.  Right now it reads “The six episode event series is coming soon to @FOXTV.

Twitter: @thexfilesfox, @GillianA, @davidduchovny.   and Hashtags: #XFilesRevival, #TheXFiles,  and #XFiles2015.  You can find us at @XFilesUniverse.

FOX: To hear news straight from the source, http://www.fox.com/the-x-files is from FOX itself.

Facebook: The FOX Network has an X-Files page that is full of information, though not just about the Revival.  XFU has a Facebook page here.

After months of speculation, today FOX and Chris Carter confirmed that The X-Files is returning to television for six original episodes.

Creator and co-producer Chris Carter is back.  David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles of Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

This writer shivered with delight.  Wrap your mind around this, because Mulder and Scully are BACK!!!

While XFU has held off on too much speculation according to rumors, we will say that rumors have Mitch Pileggi returning as Walter Skinner and some of the original writers returning, as well.  Fingers are crossed.  Now, if only they can figure out a way to bring back The Lone Gunmen (witness protection, maybe?)!

Fans will remember that the movies were kept well under-wraps and several red herrings were tossed out by Chris Carter.  I for one cannot wait to see what is coming our way!

Image result for vince gilligan breaking badIf you haven’t checked out X-FilesLexicon.com’s interview with Vince Gilligan, you should.  Matt Allair crafted another quality, in-depth discussion with an icon.

My favorite part is the topic of “The Lone Gunmen,” who shall always have a grip on my heart.  Gilligan speaks of how proud he is of The Lone Gunmen series.  He said, “I would hold The Lone Gunmen up against anything that I have done before or since.”  Big words for the co-creator of Breaking Bad.
