"Mulder, I've seen it...I've seen how it begins."
Those were Scully's whispered words to Mulder at the beginning of the very first trailer for the eleventh season of The X-Files. The trailer opened up the series' New York Comic Con panel this afternoon. We'll have interviews, photos, and more from NYCC soon, but in the meantime, let's take a deeper look at this trailer.
Now that’s an image that will have any Phile reaching for the nearest hug. This week’s Entertainment Weekly has a sneak peek of Season 11 and it doesn’t exactly look like good things are in store for Scully. How did we go from a dying Mulder and Scully saving the world to this? “Obviously something unexpected has happened,” Chris Carter wryly tells EW’s Kelly Connolly.
Carter also says that shippers “have something to look forward to” but as always is tight-lipped about what that may be. And we can look for William to “come to the fore.”
Carter also shares a few details about what the premiere holds, episode 3, Barbara Hershey’s role, and what other relationships might be turned on their head.
You can get all the details now by reading the article on EW’s website, their app, or by picking up a copy at your local newsstand or bookstore. Look for the “Stranger Things” cover.
David Duchovny ads a third novel to his shelf after the success of “Holy Cow” and “Bucky F*cking Dent.” “Miss Subways” will be available May 1, 2018, and is available for pre-order from a variety of stores.
Macmillan publishers shares this summary: “Emer is just a girl living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on? Taking inspiration from the myth of Emer and Cuchulain, loosely based on W. B. Yeats’s play The Only Jealousy of Emer, and featuring an all-star cast of mythical figures from all over the world, David Duchovny’s darkly funny fantasy novel Miss Subways is one woman’s trippy, mystical journey down parallel tracks of time and love. On the way, Emer will battle natural and supernatural forces to find her true voice, power, and destiny. A fairy tale of love lost and regained, Miss Subways is also a love letter to the city that enchants us all: New York.”
The next audio adventures of Mulder and Scully, “The X-Files: Stolen Lives,” will be available from Audible on October 3rd. Get a head start on your listening and check out these excerpts shared by Audible and Bleeding Cool. Like “Cold Cases,” “Stolen Lives” follows the stories in the Season 10 comic books from Joe Harris and IDW. The excerpts are from the arc set up in issues #16 and #17, “Immaculate” Part 1 and Part 2.
Scully dressing down Skinner about Mulder’s whereabouts is particularly delightful, as is Mulder’s snark while investigating.
