– Dean Haglund has tweeted that the Lone Gunmen will be back for next year’s “The X-Files” revival. Question remains: The trio was supposedly killed off in the show’s ninth season. How they will reappear might just be one of the show’s mysteries that Mulder and Scully will have to solve…
Meanwhile, Chris Carter told me at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) a few weeks ago that the writers who were hired to write episodes for the revival will be directing their written episodes themselves. Darin Morgan is one, as are Glen Morgan and James Wong. Carter himself writes and directs the bookend episodes.
