In less than four short weeks, Mulder and Scully will be back on the case when Fox's reboot of The X-Files premieres. In anticipation of that fateful moment, the network put together a 21-minute behind-the-scenes featurette all about the making of the latest, six-episode installment of their story. You can watch the delightful sneak peek above, and below, seven important bits of info we gleaned from the special.
Beware: There are spoilers ahead. Mild ones, since they're coming directly from creator Chris Carter and stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny themselves and you know they wouldn't spill too much, but still—there are definitely spoilers. So if you want to go in blind, bookmark this and come back after the series premieres on Sunday, Jan. 24. Ready? Okay.
1. Mulder and Scully are NOT together. Sorry. It's kind of a bummer, but Carter says you'll learn what has happened in their relationship. "Mulder and Scully for nine years had a platonic relationship. Even though we suggested they have a child together, we never saw them as a couple until the second movie where we saw them definitely together. When we come back to them in the new series, we will have been honest to their new relationship previously but we now find them in another state," he says. Now, seven or eight years later, "time has been difficult for their relationship. We will investigate what's happened in that time."
