The Fox Network confirmed that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will begin working again with creator Chris Carter this year on the next season of The X-Files, following on the heels of the eagerly awaited 2016 Fox event series.  Fox seems to have found a way to make the minimum returns its needs, having resurrected other shows like 24 and Prison Break, as ten episodes have been ordered for this next mini-series.  The show is expected to air beginning in late 2017.

While you’re waiting for the next television adventures of Mulder and Scully, IDW Publishing has the further print adventures of the infamous FBI detectives in the pages of its own ongoing series.  Today IDW releases The X-Files, Volume 2: Came Back Haunted, a trade edition compiling Issues #6-9 of the monthly book.

Written by Joe Harris with artwork by Matthew Dow Smith and colors by Jordie Bellaire, we catch up with Mulder and Scully investigating the cause of a series of violent outbreaks involving a community of refugees and a mall shooting.  Another government conspiracy?  How does it all connect to secrets thought to be buried forever?
