It’s been a thrill ride for a couple of days since taping started on the X-Files revival. The very first moment was basically a couple of empty seats, both literally and metaphorically.
However, day two. Gracious, day two. The cast and group wandered out beyond all detectable inhibitions to film on location in Vancouver. Furthermore, now Fox’s X-Files Twitter account has released our first official look at David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in character as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Check them out—for the first time in seven years.

It’s an image calculated to tell us almost nothing, aside from the fact that Mulder and Scully are physically in the same place—but it’s sure to spark questions anyway. Where are they going? Why is Mulder dressed so casually? Who is Scully going to take out with a single glance this time?
In any case, it’s confirmed that this show will not let us live our lives in peace for as long as the revival is in production. Good.
