It’s hard to believe, but The X-Files premiered 20 years ago this September. As it turns out, to celebrate the show reaching this milestone, there will be a big reunion panel next month at San Diego Comic-Con.
SDCCBlog.com gave us the heads up about The X-Files reunion, noting that the latest issue of TV Guide Magazine has an ad for the panel, which will take place on Thursday, July 18th and will feature series creator Chris Carter and writer/producers David Amann,Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban and Jim Wong. The X-Files’ writers have been a particularly successful group, boasting acclaimed alumni like Gilligan, who created Breaking Bad, and Gordon, whose credits include 24 and Homeland.
The ad also lists “more guests to come,” which will have us all wondering – will David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson take part in the panel? Keep your fingers crossed…
Update: Gillian Anderson’s official website says she will indeed be a part of the panel. Thanks to @XFSista for the heads up.
Update 2: SDCCBlog.com have now confirmed David Duchovny will be a part of the panel as well. Mulder and Scully are back together, at least for one day!
