X-Files News is on Archival Mode. Updates are on hiatus.

Twenty years after The X-Files first graced our screens, the series' cast and crew is headed to San Diego Comic-Con. If you're not familiar with conventions, Comic-Con International is the comic-con to go to. Every July, 130,000 fans of TV, film, comics, video games, and many other genres pack into the convention center in downtown San Diego. 

This year, the convention runs from Thursday, July 18th through Sunday the 21st, with preview night on Wednesday. Generally, the floor opens every day at 9:30am and close at 7pm, except for Sunday when everything wraps up at 5pm. 

There are lots of X-Files events happening at SDCC this year, and XFN will be covering them all. Here's a look at what's in store.


TV Guide Panel 

This year, the biggest XF event by far is TV Guide Magazine's The X-Files' 20th Anniversary Panel. It will feature Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Chris Carter, David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban, and James Wong. We're not sure that they could really fit anyone else on stage if they wanted to. 

The panel will take place on Thursday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in Ballroom 20. TV Guide's Los Angeles Bureau Chief Michael Schnieder will moderate. 

If you're not attending, don't worry because XFN will be bringing you full coverage of the event. We will live tweet the entire panel from our Twitter, with a few of those updates on our Facebook as well. You will also find a full write-up here after the event. The panel has its own official Twitter account that you can follow, too. 

IDW Publishing's The X-Files: Season 10

IDW Publishing will be holding several events for the new X-Files comics! There will be an entire panel devoted to the subject on Friday at 1:45pm in Room 5AB. It will include Gillian Anderson, Chris Carter, Dean Haglund, IDW Editor-In-Chief Chris Ryall, writer Joe Harris, and editor Denton Tipton. We will be live tweeting this panel as well.

There will also be a comic signing at the IDW booth (#2643) for the Issue #1 Convention Cover Variant on Friday at 3:30. This will include Gillian Anderson, Chris Carter, Joe Harris, and cover artist Joe Corroney.

Lightspeed Fine Art

The Lightspeed Fine Art booth (#3745) will be hosting David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Chris Carter. On Thursday after the X-Files panel, there will be a combined photo-op will all three of them for $275. There is one with just David and Gillian for $200. Gillian will also be doing solo photo-ops Thursday through Saturday (price TBA). 

Gillian ($60), David ($80), and Chris ($30) will all be signing autographs on Thursday afternoon, though Gillian will have autograph time scheduled through Saturday. Autographs for Chris and David, as well as the combined photo-ops, must be pre-ordered through Lightspeed by calling them at 949-679-4444. Tickets for photos with Gillian or her autograph can be pre-ordered or bought directly at the booth during the convention.
