We have the un-redacted file containing the entire 1st minute of Sunday's THE X-FILES return, as Mulder and Scully return to the screen thirteen years after we last saw them.
And what an ending that series finale was! SPOILER ALERT (from original series)**
The last time we see the FBI agents and paranormal experts they are in a state of despair, as Mulder escapes life imprisonment but only to face an impending and irreversible alien invasion with Scully, presumably on the run. Their love for themselves and their friends love for them and their cause - to reveal the government's involvement in the most heinous of conspiracies - led to a dramatic breakout following the lopsided trial that declared Mulder guilty. This brings Skinner and Reyes and many of their comrades together to free Mulder before he is locked away forever.
We are left with the world's END GAME, the date of the invasion, in the year 2012. SPOILER ALERT ENDS***
What has happened to them since?
Clearly the world has gone on and the former FBI agents are still alive in it.
The supernatural elements will not have rested, but have the aliens? Fans have been clamoring for more of The X-Files story ever since the fantastic second movie gave us a great episode on the silver screen, but did nothing to reveal what happened after show creator Chris Carter's riveting series finale.
The storyline, the canon, has innumerable possibilities for the future, and we have just a taste of that in the upcoming six episode X-Files EVENT. Stay tuned after the playoff game Sunday night for the first in the two night series premiere!
The truth is still out there!
A great article about the show's history, old and new, and the dynamic of the lead characters from the Times, "‘The X-Files’: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Return to the Paranormal Beat" quotes the brilliant Anderson who plays Scully:
Ms. Anderson, who admits she wasn’t really conscious of the series’s cultural impact while she was working on it, now appreciates Scully in ways she never could before. “There’s a certain quality to the respect and the love that people have for the series and us deciding to do it again,” she said. “It’s different I think than if we’d just done another ‘X-Files’ film. Because people’s relationship with TV is different. There’s such a positivity to it. And a purity. It’s almost like people have been told there’s going to be a second Christmas. And I kind of feel the same way.”
