As an X Files lover through and through, I approached the news of the new episodes with major trepidation. The last time we saw Mulder and Scully was in the less than great The X Files: I Want to Believe, plus I just didn’t believe that it would actually happen until I saw either set photos or footage.
Well, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got the first photo’s of the new set of episodes as well as some shots from behind the scenes. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited with these shots. The appearance of Joel McHale here fills me with a little bit of fear, even though I am a huge fan of The Soup. It’s great to see The Americans (watch that show) actress Annet Mahendru here as well. I’d pay a lot of money to see The Americans cross over with The X Files, with Mulder and Scully rescuing Nina from Russia. (Yes, I realise they both take place in different time lines).
