FOX’s X-Files event revival has fans in a tizzy with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson tweeting out snippets from the set, but shooting in a very public Vancouver has brought cameras out of the woodwork. See Mulder and Scully back in action, along with a very dapper Joel McHale in our first look at the 2016 X-Files return!

Mulder looks appropriately Mulder by The X-Files’ first set photos, perhaps behind in fashion jeans-wise, while Scully remains as dapper as ever. Of course, Gillian Anderson is back to her iconic red hair, a stark contrast from the blonde we’ve grown accustomed to on NBC’s Hannibal. And who could forget Community star Joel McHale, playing conservative pundit Tad O’Malley?
Thus far, FOX’s X-Files return has also confirmed Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis to reprise their roles beside David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, apart from a shortlist that named Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish as candidates to return. On the creative side, writers and producers Chris Carter, Glen Morgan and Jim Wong will return to write and direct, with Frank Spotnitz also eyed to pitch in, and composer Mark Snow also coming aboard.
The X-Files will shoot this summer for a January 2016 premiere, but what else might set photos reveal over the course of production?
