At New York Comic Con, Fox released the very first look at the eleventh season of The X-Files, due on our screens next year. They’ve only filmed five of the ten new episodes, so we know that only those episodes must be included. Which means there’s a lot going on in the beginning of the season.
Series creator Chris Carter, Mitch Pileggi (Skinner), Gillian Anderson (Scully), and David Duchovny (Mulder) were all on hand in New York to talk about the second season of the X-Files reboot and the eleventh season of the show overall.
The big thing is that obviously William, Mulder and Scully’s son, is playing a huge role in the mythology (down to only two episodes of the ten). During the panel, Carter said that they’d “Explore that relationship, the father-son-mother relationship” and “you’ll see more of William than you’ve seen in a long time.” Of the relationship between Mulder and Scully, which was less romantic than fans may have wanted, Carter said they would be “kissing close.”
