It has previously been announced that Fox’s revival of their old 90’s franchise The X-Files would begin filming this summer, we knew that casting news would be released. As well as David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi would be returning, we have the first word on a new face joining the cast for the limited-run series.
Joel McHale will be joining the cast when the series returns. The Talk Soup and Community star will play Tad O’Malley (nice name choice), a conservative new anchor that becomes a surprising ally to Fox Mulder.
As the six-episode series begins filming this summer, the new series will not air until January of 2016. However, with the way the year is going, the new year will be here faster than you know it.
