Believe it or not, the premiere episode of Fox's "X-Files" will be screened at New York Comic Con this October. According to TVLine, the series debut will show on the Javits Center Main Stage on Saturday, October 10, followed by a a Q&A with creator Chris Carter and star David Duchovny and moderated by "Silicon Valley's" Kumail Nanjiani.
In the new series, Mulder and Scully will investigate a possible alien abductee (Annet Mahendru of “The Americans”) at the behest of a conservative talk-show host played by Joel McHale. According to an earlier interview with returning writer Darin Morgan, the show will pick up with Mulder and Scully in a far different place than where they left off in the 2008 movie “The X-Files: I Want to Believe.”
Premiering Jan. 24, the six-episode Fox revival also stars “X-Files” franchise veterans Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi and newcomer Joel McHale. Series creator Chris Carter is joined behind the scenes by writers/producers Glen Morgan and James Wong.
