Just in case you wanted to be even more excited about The X-Files season 11, here it is: News that Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose are back!
According to TVLine, these two characters will reprising their roles as Agents Miller and Einstein during an undetermined number of episodes for the latest batch of episodes. Their role is still to be determined, but they should be interesting foils to Mulder/Scully just because they are so much like them. You’ve got one character who is open-minded about the supernatural, and the other who is far more resistant to go along with any sort of odd conspiracy without any sort of evidence to back it up. They could be at odds at times, but also the perfect partnership at odds. Watching the two of them figure out the dynamics of this relationship is one of the things that we’re most excited about when it comes to this season.
There was at one point whispers that these characters could eventually star on their own spin-off show, but we haven’t heard anything on that in a while and honestly hope that it’s dead — it’s not that either one of these characters is bad, but since they’re so close to the original Mulder and Scully, it’s unfair to throw those sort of expectations on the two of them. It’d be impossible for them to reach it! Ultimately, you do want these two to be put into a position where they have at least some chance of being successful when it comes to their roles on the show. They’ll also be more successful characters on this show without the weight of that.
The good news is that it seems like Chris Carter and the team seemed settled now into the idea that The X-Files is really a story at its core about Mulder and Scully, and it’s not deviating all that far from that.
Amell you may know from The Tomorrow People or his recent arc as Ronnie Raymond on The Flash; meanwhile, Ambrose was one of the excellent stars of Six Feet Under during the time in which it was on the air. There are ten episodes coming for the new season of The X-Files, and at present the plan seems to be to tell two mythology stories at the start and end of the season while filling the middle portion of it with some of the vintage cases that you’ve come to expect from this show over time. We hope that it lives up to the expectations, which we know can be difficult given that this is fundamentally one of the most-beloved science fiction franchises out there.
