After returning to television for a six-episode series last year, Scully and Mulder will resume their hunt for THE TRUTH. Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson, and David Duchovny will all be back for a ten-episode “event series” sometime in the 2017-2018 season.
The last event series added a new, wistful tone to the detectives’ relationship, along with new recurring character Tad O’Malley, a bloviating conspiracy theorist played by Joel McHale, new mini-agents Miller and Einstein, and a few great scenes of Mitch Pileggi’s A.D. Skinner. It will be interesting to see if they return given the expanded ten-episode format the show has to play with. The last series also delved more into Scully and Mulder’s past together and the fate of their child, William, so it seems inevitable that he’ll figure into the new mini-season.
