Here finally is everything I have from THE X-FILES season ten, six episode run. I have episode screencaps, stills, promotional images from the show, and more to come. I was able to collect a full set of season ten stills in terms of all episodes from each show so what I decided to do instead of just uploading the ones with Mitch, I thought I’d give you all of them. There are several sites out there that have some of the stills, but not all in one place. So I hope you don’t mind that. Overall I have to say I enjoyed each episode. While I know the fandom out there is sort of split on the essence of the season, I didn’t mind it one bit. I thought all episodes, with the exception of the severe lack of Skinner and Mitch, were well in line with the show’s original run. Considering the amount of time they didn’t have, I thought they gave as much as they could considering. The finale with the cliffhanger was typical and I’m betting Chris Carter did it deliberately to force FOX into giving the go-ahead for further seasons. So as I said, I’m not too terribly disappointed with the episodes other than the aforementioned lack of Skinner, but I guess three episodes out of six are pretty much pro-forma for the ratio Mitch was in during the show’s original run. My favourite episode of the season: Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster. How fun was that episode? I loved how the monster in human form had the proclivity to lie about his sex life, bringing in a total sexualized Scully (Gillian Anderson) to emphasize that point. Then the tribute to Kim Manners in the scene between the Were-Monster (Rhys Darby) and Mulder (David Duchovny) in front of the tombstone. Class act there guys. I’m sure Kim Manners would have been tickled that Mulder was having a major character conflict in front of that. Too funny and cute. Thanks guys. Favourite two lines: “Now this is how I like my Mulder” and “No, you’re bat-crap crazy!” Both delivered with excellence by Gillian Anderson.

There is a video available at FOX’s official Youtube channel. Mitch provided the link in a Tweet. Thanks Mitch for the lead. The new footage is toward the end of the video showing both Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) in their FBI suits and in full G-Man/Woman mode.

I am a happy camper this evening. Just found this.

Pileggi, Davis, Patrick, Gish return for X-Files

Mitch Pileggi and William B.Davis will be back as Skinner and The Cigarette Smoking Man, respectively, in Fox’s “X-Files” sequel series.

Star David Duchovny revealed the new inclusions on David Letterman’s show this week, reiterating that many of the originals from the original show – aside from himself and Gillian Anderson – will reprise their roles for the new six-episode series.

Also expected to reprise their roles from the original run, Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish, who TV Line says have been signed to return as Doggett and Reyes.

“The X-Files” begins filming this Summer in Vancouver.

Well, it’s been confirmed by David Duchovny that Mitch will indeed be returning to the limited series run of the rebooted THE X-FILES. I for one could not be happier. It’ll be nice to see where The Skinman falls in the return and what Mitch will look like. He’d better be Director of the FBI. Just kidding. In any case I’m just just glad we have confirmation. Now my next happy dance will be done when I find out both Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish will be back. And what happened to William….

David Duchovny reveals Walter Skinner, the Smoking Man will return for ‘X-Files’ reboot

As excitement surrounding “The X-Files” return to TV continues to escalate, the show’s star, David Duchovny, revealed some of the other original cast members making a comeback.

“Gillian and I, we’re original,” he told David Letterman Tuesday about the obvious inclusion of him and co-star Gillian Anderson, who played FBI Special Agent Dana Scully throughout the nine seasons of the TV series and in both feature films.

Duchovny, who will reprise his role as Agent Fox Mulder, said, “Mitch Pileggi will come back, and the cigarette-smoking man — if that means anything to anyone — will be coming back.”

For fans, the Smoking Man’s return means a whole lot. The villainous character played by William B. Davis is Agent Mulder’s arch-nemesis, who has multiple aliases, including Cancer Man, CSM or C-Man in addition to the two previously mentioned.

His real name, C.G.B. Spender, was revealed in 1999 during season six, after being exposed to an alien artifact on the hit Fox sci-fi series. But fans continued calling him the Smoking Man since he was always shown chain-smoking Morley’s, a fictional brand of cigarettes.

It may come as a bit of a surprise to fans that Smoking Man’s coming back since he appeared to be killed by a helicopter rocket in the 2002 series finale.

“No one really dies on ‘X-Files,'” the show’s creator Chris Carter previously said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pileggi will return to play his role as FBI Assistant Director Walter Sergei Skinner for the show’s 6-episode event set to begin filming in Vancouver this summer for a 2016 release.

“It’s a strange phenomenon that people still want to see those characters,” Duchovny told Letterman. “But I’m grateful.”

This is good news and what I’ve been hoping. Looks like not only David Duchovney (Fox Mulder), Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and Mitch are returning, looks like both Robert Patrick (John Doggett) and Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes) are being rumored to be returning to THE X-FILES 2015. Please let this hurry up and happen!

‘The X-Files’ Revival: Robert Patrick, Annabeth Gish & Mitch Pileggi Eyed To Return

EXCLUSIVE: Now that the official greenlight from Fox has arrived – after extremely lengthy talks between Chris Carter, the network and 20th Century Fox Television – the rest of the pieces of the puzzle that is The X-Files revival are starting to fall into place.

With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson confirmed to be returning to their iconic roles, the inevitable question of whether or not any further cast members will reprise their roles is lingering. TVWise can reveal that three key X-Files alums are presently being eyed to reprise their roles in the six episode event series.

Those three cast members are none other than Robert Patrick (From Dusk Till Dawn), Annabeth Gish (The Bridge) and Mitch Pileggi (Sons Of Anarchy).

The X-Files 2016 TeaserRobert Patrick and Annabeth Gish were main cast members for the final two seasons, playing the parts of Special Agent John Doggett and Special Agent Monica Reyes, respectively. While Mitch Pileggi, of course, played FBI Assistant Director Skinner from the closing episodes of the first season onwards.

While sources have stated that the trio are being eyed to reprise their roles, it should be stressed that none of them have deals in place as of yet. In fact, studio insiders tell me that there are no deals in place for anyone outside of Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. The deal making process will be getting underway in the days and weeks ahead, with some of the actors thus far only receiving feelers to see if they would be available.

Given that, the exact level of their involvement in the revival (assuming the deals close) remains a little uncertain. Sources have indicated that Robert Patrick, for instance, would perhaps appear in a limited number of episodes if he agreed to return, in part because of his contractual obligations to CBS and their drama series Scorpion – which has already been picked up for a second season.

In addition, I have confirmed that William B. Davis, well known for his role as CGB Spender/Cigarette Smoking Man, is also being lined up to appear in the revival (Davis himself revealed this is an interview in his native Canada in the past few days). But like the other three actors there is no formal deal as of yet – it is still early days after all.

William B Davis – X-FilesBeyond casting other pieces are starting to fall in place. Scouts are presently up in Vancouver and I’m told that the production will be receiving some funding by way of a tax credits programme from the Canadian Government. In addition a number of writers are currently in talks to join the production team. One such writer is Glen Morgan, who recently created the BBC America series Intruders. From what I’m told he may also serve as an executive producer alongside Chris Carter, but I’ve yet to hear confirmation on that.

Frank Spotnitz’s involvement remains something of a question mark. I hear that both Chris Carter and Fox want him back, but his commitments to Tandem’s Crossing Lines and his recently green-lit Amazon series The Man In The High Castle make it difficult. Even so, my sources are hopeful that he will return in “at least a limited capacity”. Equally, I hear that another successful and busy X-Files alum, Howard Gordon, will not be involved.

As for the some of the finer details, no one is talking on the specific plot points beyond the fact that the revival will address the lingering storylines left by the initial nine season run and both feature films. That said, I’m told that Carter’s comment in the official press release was misconstrued by some outlets and that the series will consist of both mythology and stand-alone (or “Monster Of The Week”) episodes.

There is also early chatter about a streaming deal for the revival. Presently the original nine season run is available of both Netflix and Amazon Prime in the US, but a deal for exclusive streaming rights is expected to be hammered out in the months ahead. It is early days and it’s not clear if Amazon or Netflix would have the edge here, but the deal will be worth “big money”.

Finally, the studio’s international distribution division (Twentieth Century Fox International Television Distribution) is already bracing for a large number of international deals to close soon after the LA Screenings in May; with The X-Files revival widely expected to be the hottest US scripted drama on the international marketplace for the year ahead.
