The X-Files revival: Who's back, who's new, and who we hope to see

Posted on

Ed Araquel/Fox

No revival of The X-Files would be complete without its iconic leads, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). But who else from the seminal sci-fi series will be aiding them – or thwarting them – in their investigations into alien abductions, malevolent mutants, and assorted supernatural strangeness?

The show’s creator, Chris Carter, was reluctant to give up all the names, but he coughed up a few, and he added that we should “expect some surprises.” Here’s who’s back, who’s new, and who we’d like to see when The X-Files returns early next year.
