13 years!  Yes, it’s been 13 years since Special Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) last graced our screens (save for the two feature length films) and now the two are back in Jan of 2016 for a re-boot of the massive 90’s cult series that we’ve all been begging for on FOX.

The six episode mini series will pick-up after where the series ended in 2002 which will see our reunited duo chasing monsters and little green men but also dealing with modern day threats like drones, NSA spying and constant surveillance.

Check out the recently aired two-part teaser trailers below:


Joining our two favorite heroes in the reboot are familiar faces including Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner, William B. Davis  as The Smoking Man and Annabeth Gish as FBI Agent Monica Reyes along with Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood as The Lone Gunmen!

The X-Files mini-series returns to screens, Jan 26th 2016 on FOX

Upfronts: ABC Cancellations, Renewals and Pick-ups

ABC’s cancelled Trophy Wife

It’s time of the year where I moan and groan about losing some of my ‘must watch’ shows while being thankful others on the list live to see another season.

Yes, the US Upfronts are here and already, I’ve suffered one serious tragedy.  ABC held their Upfronts yesterday and one notable standout on the cancelled list was freshman comedy Trophy Wife starring Malin Ackerman and Bradley Whitford.

Trophy Wife, like Cougar Town, suffered from ‘bad title’ syndrome which is great show, very funny, bad title and just like Cougar Town, ABC swept the comedy into the trash (perhaps TBS should pick this one up too?)

While ABC won’t officially unveil their new fall season until the 13th, what can we expect from the network with their pick-ups, renewals and cancellations so far?

Cancelled – Trophy Wife (noooooo!), Mixology, Super Fun Night, Suburgatory and The Neighbors.

Renewed – Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Revenge, Once Upon a Time, Castle, Marvel Agents of SHIELD, Modern Family, The Goldbergs and Resurrection.

New Pick-Ups –

How to get away with murder – New drama by Shonda Rhimes

American Crime – Starring Penelope Ann Miller and Felicity Huffman

Agent Carter – Captain America TV spin-off starring Hayley Atwell

The Whispers – Paranormal thriller starring Lily Rabe

Secrets and Lies – US remake of the Aussie drama starring Ryan Phillippe.
