While it may (almost) be harder to believe than rumors of an alien abduction, Sunday was the 24th anniversary of The X-Files' pilot episode, marked by longtime costars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny tweeting at each other in what is both anticipation for the anxiously awaited season 11 and an ode to the paranormal smash series that convinced us the truth is still out there.
The photo Anderson tweeted of Mulder and Scully arguing in a downpour is kind of hilarious, followed by “24 years today. Déjà vu all over again. Thanks for repeatedly standing in the mud & the rain with me @davidduchovny.” To which Duchovny replied: “What’s a little mud and rain between partners.
I can totally see this screen-printed on a cake.
This is probably even better than cake for fans who are eager for the X-Files to open up again. Anderson and Duchovny’s messages from space are coming just a month after new evidence about mytharc episodes and stand-alones was revealed and Annabeth Gish posted a cryptic Instagram photo.
Upon closer inspection, the photo of what looked like a strange ID card indicated she would be returning as Monica Reyes, though whether she will be redeemed or not after turning on the FBI and taking up with the Cigarette Smoking Man and his unsavory agenda remains a mystery.
Superfans who already saw them in that not-so-secret set pic but still can’t wait to see the season 11 premiere can get a glimpse at New York Comic Con where Anderson, Duchovny, Chris Carter and Mitch Pileggi will preview the new 10-episode season, which picks up right after 2016’s explosive finale. If that season’s stellar ratings are any indication, this one is going to rocket straight through the stratosphere.
I believe that even more mysteries will unravel in the upcoming season. Do you believe?
