Mulder: Scully, you are the only one I trust.
Susanne Modeski: No matter how paranoid you are, you're not paranoid enough.
Skinner: (repeated closing phrase) That will be all.
  • Will have Mythology and Monster of the Week episodes
  • The comedian Kumail Nanjiani (known for shows such as "Silicon Valley" and "The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail"), who has a role on this reboot of The X-Files," is also a devoted X-Phile who hosts "The X-Files Files," a podcast on which he discusses and analyzes in detail each episode of the original series.
  • Former X-Files writers Vince Gilligan and Frank Spotnitz were asked to return for the revival, but had to turn down the offer due to scheduling conflicts with other projects.
  • Piper Anderson-Klotz, Gillian Anderson's daughter, will be working in the Art Department. Piper was born during the second season of The X-Files and her unexpected birth was the reason the show writers devised Scully's abduction, which went on to become one of the most important mythological arcs in the original series. The third season episode The X-Files: Piper Maru (1996) was also named after her.
  • Gillian Anderson opted to wear a wig instead of dying her hair red, because it would most likely cause her hair to fall out due to having it dye back to blonde immediately (for her role on The Fall (2013)) after the shooting of the revival wrapped.
