'The X-Files' Season 11 Updates and All-New Image from Entertainment Weekly


The new issue of Entertainment Weekly features a few updates for season 11 of The X-Files, along with an all-new image from the series. You can read the entire post here, but here are a few highlights:

Viewers last saw Scully, immune to the alien virus sweeping the planet, on a gridlocked bridge trying to cure Mulder before it was too late. So what’s with this photo of Scully in the hospital — and Mulder looking healthy as ever? “Obviously something unexpected has happened,” Carter says wryly. But the showrunner promises he planned this reversal long before crafting that cliff-hanger: “Everything is by design.”


Showrunner Chris Carter promises a return to a more personal relationship between Mulder and Scully, something many felt was lacking in season 10. Oh, and William! What's the deal with William?

Carter says fans rooting for the formerly estranged duo to fully patch things up “have something to look forward to.” But the partners are in for an intense journey; the pain of Scully’s decision to give up William (the son she shares with Mulder) for adoption 15 years ago still hangs over both agents. “William has been an absent center,” Carter says. “He will come to the fore.”
Most of the new episodes are will be monster-of-the-week, but the mythology will not be completely left behind.

After episode one delves into the Cigarette Smoking Man’s (William B. Davis) backstory and apparent family ties to Mulder, the second hour opens with a time jump to put distance between Mulder and Scully and the events of the premiere. And episode three is a darkly comedic hour, penned by Carter, focusing on doubles and doppelgängers. But beyond the humor, the larger mythology of The X-Files— like the fallout from Scully’s abduction and the chip that was implanted in her neck — continues to shape Mulder and Scully’s world.

In recent casting news, Karin Konoval, who played the amputee mother of the inbred Peacock boys in the controversial and disturbing 1996 episode "Home," is making a return to the series. She will not be reprising that role, however. She will be playing multiple roles in what promises to be a chilling episode.

From Chris Carter:

While Karen Konoval won’t be reprising her role as the mother-under-the-bed in the fan-favorite episode ‘Home,’ she will be returning in a tour-de-force performance in an early episode. Or, more accurately — performances.
The X-Files returns to screens in 2018, although no date has been announced yet. You can visit the official site for The X-Files here.
