Following this week’s exciting announcement that The X-Files will be returning to television for six new episodes, Fox Mulder himself, David Duchovny has teased fans on what they can expect.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Duchovny confirmed that The X-Files will return to Vancouver, where the first five seasons of the show were filmed. He also revealed the six episodes will be a mixture of serialized storytelling and one-off monster episodes.
“We’re gonna do both. I’m pretty sure it’s gonna begin and end with the mythology,” Duchovny added.
Duchovny also discussed his and co-star Gillian Anderson’s evolution as actors and how that may be reflected in the characters of Mulder and Scully.
“If I were to look back at the first or second year of the show, I wouldn’t try to act like that guy,” Duchovny explained. “I’m capable of doing more. She’s capable of doing more. It’ll be interesting to see how we keep the characters the same but also the actors are better.”
Filming for the new season of X-Files is expected to begin this summer and will air on FOX at a date still to be announced.
