The X-Files: First Look At The Return Of The Lone Gunmen

x-files-02

Fox has released the first look at the Lone Gunmen in the X-Files revival.

Fans of the series will remember the Lone Gunmen as a trio of conspiracy theorists – Byers, Langly, and Frohike – who spun-off into their own short-lived TV show. After that series was cancelled, they returned for a Season 9 episode of X-Files and died.

X-Files creator Christ Carter explained how the dearly departed Gunmen managed to make it into the revival series.

“When you’re dead on the X-Files, you’re never necessarily gone,” told EW. “There are ways to bring people back in dream sequences, flashbacks, and the like. This was an opportunity to use them, and bring them back to the show, in what is a presumed psychedelic hallucination.”

The Lone Gunmen will appear on Monday’s episode of The X-Files, titled “Babylon.”

The X-Files airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

  1. I wish their spin-off had lasted longer. Also, it would have been hilarious if the writers used some crazy conspiracy to save them after the end of the original X-Files run. Maybe they've been in hiding at Area 51, secretly keeping tabs on Mulder, Scully, and William.

    But in the Season 11 comic books they are actually alive, not a a hallucination. IDW claims the comics are Chris Carter approved official canon, I guess Season 10 and 11 comics are now no longer canon?

    He's never officially de-canonized them, but for all intents and purposes, that's right. He said something to the effect of "this is a different continuity" about the new miniseries.

    I'm wondering whether the upcoming X-Files ongoing series will eschew the Season 10/Season 11 material and take on the continuity of the TV show.
