The newest season of “The X-Files” kicks off in just 11 days, and the cast and crew are celebrating in a big way. Last night Fox hosted a red carpet premiere for the series, where they screened the first episode in an IMAX theater.
Stars Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose and Joel McHale arrived on the red carpet — stopping to take photos, take selfies, and answer questions about the new series.

In one red carpet interview, series creator Chris Carter shared that the only cast member he wanted to bring back that he couldn’t, was Robert Patrick. Patrick played Agent Doggett in seasons 8 and 9. Patrick couldn’t join the cast for the new season because of his previous commitments on the CBS show “Scorpion.”
Also according to Blastr, “Arrow’s” Robbie Amell shared that like David Duchovny, his character is a believer. “I am a believer. It’s his main similarity with Mulder. I think I’m not quite as weird as Mulder. There’s also fun relationship between Agent Einstein (Lauren Ambrose) and I, and between Mulder and Scully. We have the same dynamic going on there.”
