In case you missed it, last Sunday a new episode of The X-Files aired on FOX. For us here at XFN, and perhaps to you as well, this was a Very Big Deal. It’s been a long time since a brand new episode of The X-Files aired on television. A very long time actually. “The Truth Parts One and Two” - the final episodes of season nine - first aired on May 19th, 2002. That made it 13 years, 8 months and 6 days between that episode and the first airing of “My Struggle”, the first episode of season 10. An incredible 4,999 days in total. That’s a long time to wait, and while we Philes may have sat patiently waiting for the return of Mulder and Scully to the small screen, the world has marched onwards. People have been born (perhaps you’re one of them) and died. Wars have been fought, discoveries made, and much, much more. To help put things into perspective, we rounded up a list of just some of the things that have happened in those nearly 5000 days since we watched Mulder and Scully spoon up on a motel bed in Roswell. Fair warning: this post will make you feel old!
Chris Carter spoke to XFN this past Friday at The Grove in Los Angeles where FOX crash-landed a UFO to promote the premiere of The X-Files. Chris spoke about what's to come from the new season, the development of the characters, and how Fox Mulder gets his groove back.

Agent Monica Reyes returns to The X-Files and there's a fair amount of secrecy around it. Annabeth Gish chatted with us during the LA Screening for season ten's first episode. What does she have to say about her return to the show?
Back in October, we had the pleasure to share a few minutes with Writer/Director Glen Morgan. He shared a few candid memories of coming back to the show for The X-Files Revival.
