X-Files Wraps Up Filming As Twin Peaks Preps Production
As one ‘90s revival TV show wraps production, another ‘90 revival TV show begins production. Over in Vancouver, season 10 of The X-Files is about to finish up production, while Twin Peaks is heading back to Washington state for its own long overdue revival on Showtime. Back in the ‘90s, viewers had a love for both FBI agents and the supernatural, at least according to the popularity of The X-Files and Twin Peaks.
The X-Files followed the lives of FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they investigate the paranormal and uncover the US government’s conspiracy regarding extraterrestrials. The show had nine seasons, spawned two feature-length movies, a comic book series, and is returning to Fox with a revival mini-series, which will be considered the tenth season of the show.
According to YVRshoots, David Duchovny just wrapped almost three months of filming in Vancouver. The actor shot his last scene with costars Gillian Anderson and Robbie Amell; the latter will be playing a new character in the series, Agent Miller. The fan-favorite Lone Gunmen were also spotted on the set, but unfortunately, no photographic evidence was provided.
From Canada to Washington state, the crew for Twin Peaks has started prepping for that show’s revival. The creative minds of David Lynch and Mark Frost brought Twins Peaks to ABC in 1990 and the show featured some of the most interesting surrealism to grace any broadcast network. As Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) investigates the murder of high schooler Laura Palmer, he finds that the town of Twin Peaks is not quite what it seems. 25 years after the show was cancelled prematurely, Showtime and David Lynch announced that the series would be revived on the cable network. Despite issues between Lynch and Showtime, the show is set to premiere in late 2016 or early 2017.
