A streak of lucky events seem to be happening to The New York Times, as right after dodging the bullet in the form of print media disappearance, the Fox announced the reboot of X-files just as they were planning to interview one of the show’s stars David Duchovny. The focus of the interview was abruptly changed from Duchovny’s new show Aquraius, to the filming of new X-files.
Although the Duchovny kept his lips shut about the intricate details of the new X-file, he did casually mention what the show will probably be about. Most notably, he claimed that his colleague Gillian Anderson and he are going to outperform themselves this time around, or so is he convinced, showing that he is not too nervous about stepping into the role of Fox Mulder again. Anderson adding “I think we’ve both gotten better as we’ve gotten older…If I were to look back at the first or second year of the show, I wouldn’t try to act like that guy. I’m capable of doing more. She’s capable of doing more.”
While we are on the topic of older, Duchovny also claimed that the new X-files will be connected to the previous series and will continue where it left off, making it different from the traditional reboots and proving the legitimacy of the X-files of old. What little solid information Duchovny provided was regarding the content of the series. He says that it will try to incorporate mythology with modern-day monsters, giving an accent to mythological aspects.
In case the story of Mulder’s sister, Krycek, or the black oil does not capture your interest in any way, you might want to contemplate skipping the first and last episodes, but take note that this will cost you some missed action brought by Duchovny and Anderson’s new acting skills.
