More ‘X-Files’ Favorites Return in First Finale Photos of ‘My Struggle II’
However unevenly, The X-Files’ 2016 revival all been building toward the coming finale “My Struggle II,” finally picking up with the premiere revelations and a return to alien mythology. The full photo set has arrived, returning both old and new series stars alike, but a familiar question arises - Where’s Mulder?
FOX released the full photo gallery for “My Struggle II,” which doesn’t reveal terribly much for the moment, but at least returns Annabeth Gish as FBI Agent Reyes, an ersatz replacement of sorts for Scully in David Duchovny’s later season absence. And speaking of an MIA Mulder, ol’ Spooky only appears obscured in one photo, joined by Agent Miller (Robbie Amell).
In the meantime, so reads FOX’s press release for “My Struggle II,” which follows the premiere in opening from Scully’s perspective:
MULDER AND SCULLY UNCOVER A SHOCKING TRUTH WITH GLOBAL RAMIFICATIONS ON THE ALL-NEW SEASON FINALE OF “THE X-FILES” MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, ON FOX
The investigations that Mulder and Scully previously began with conspiracy theorist and web-TV show host Tad O’Malley (guest star Joel McHale) seem to have awakened powerful enemies. A widespread panic begins as people all over the country suddenly start falling gravely ill, and Scully must look within to try and find a cure. Meanwhile, Mulder confronts the man whom he believes to be behind it all, but another figure from Mulder and Scully’s past may prove to be the key to their salvation.
Guest Cast: William B. Davis as Cigarette Smoking Man, Annabeth Gish as Monica Reyes, Joel McHale as Tad O’Malley, Robbie Amell as Agent Miller, Lauren Ambrose as Agent Einstein, Julian Christopher as Dr. Oscar Griffiths and Aliza Vellani as Nurse Sandeep
