We were getting along fine, reading our issues of one of the best tie-in series around, The X-Files Season 10 and The X-Files Season 11 from IDW Publishing. For the record, these series are considered canon, and the truth is they’ve earned it. The writers and artists know the characters and the story. Following right after the events in the second big screen follow-up to the TV series, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the comic books are as good as the original series and even better than the movies. But wait, The X-Files is coming back to TV? What’s next? A Firefly series?
The first full trailer from Fox (the network, not Mulder) has all the best feel from the original. It’s David Duchovny’s same craggy Fox Mulder, Gillian Anderson’s same inquisitive Dana Scully, and the cool, calm, and collected Mitch Pileggi as Skinner. Finally, something to be excited about that is not Star Wars Episode VII!
Plus, the series, which is slated for only six episodes, draws in genre favorites Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose (Coma) as new agents. And even Joel McHale (The Soup, Community) has a main role in the series.
Enough waiting! Check out the trailer:
