The Best News You’ll Hear Today: The Lone Gunmen are Returning to The X-Files


As with pretty much everyone else on the Internet, I’m incredibly excited about The X-Files‘ revival, perhaps even more than Twin Peaks‘ reboot.  We’ve already got the principal cast returning with David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and William B. Davis alongside creator Chris Carter and writers Frank Spotnitz, Glen Morgan, Jim Wong, and Darin Morgan, plus we’ll have Joel McHale and Kumail Nanjiani as guest stars.  But here’s perhaps the most surprising and perhaps pleasing news so far: everyone’s three favorite conspiracy theorists, the Lone Gunmen, will come back, with Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, and Dean Haglund set to reprise their roles.

The reason this news may be startling is because (spoilers) the Lone Gunmen were killed off during the show’s final season after preventing a deadly virus from annihilating thousands of civilians, a move that disappointed and angered many X-Files fans.  Hopefully there’ll be a logical explanation to the Gunmen’s return alongside the Smoking Man’s survival.  The X-Files will return next January.


  1. Yeah, the explanation better be good.

    • Agree, I really have no idea how they’re going to bring the Lone Gunmen back from the dead. But either way, I’m glad to see them returning.
