David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have played many roles in their post-“X-Files” careers, but they’ll forever be known by two names: Mulder and Scully. It’s been 20 years since “The X-Files” premiered, changing the landscape of TV forever.
To say I was flustered by these two is an understatement.
Chris Carter will serve as executive producer on the comic series and sign off on stories, provide feedback, etc. Also Mulder and Scully will be an “item.”
"We’re going to try and usher ‘The X-Files’ into a new age. We’ve got WikiLeaks, now. Drone warfare, the Patriot Act and challenges related to the government and influence from outside forces, corporations and lobby groups," series writer Joe Harris told Comic Book Resources. “America has challenges, problems both new and old, related to how it functions, as well as just who it really functions for. I think the ‘X-Files’ mythos will fit nicely into these chaotic, interconnected times.”
