    I had a feeling they would be returning considering how Season 10 ended. I just hope that Miller and Einstein get fleshed out as characters a bit more rather than being just another Mulder and another Scully and turned up to 10.

    Yeah, they're pretty much blank slates at this point, but the potential is there. I've liked Ambrose in other projects and she could probably bring more life to the Einstein character, given the opportunity. Amell is an attractive actor, but I find his performance as Miller to be fairly bland. Hopefully they both step up to flesh out their roles in the new season -- along with the writers, of course.

    Definitely agree that there is potential in the characters of Einstein and Miller. I just hope that Chris Carter realises they're both lacking depth and complexity and fixes that in S11.
    I'm unaware of Amell's previous work nor do I know of anything I've seen him in before The X-Files but what little he had to work with playing Miller he made it work. He's a good actor.
    Ambrose I have seen work before. I was very impressed with her in Series 4 of Torchwood (one of a short list of things to find impressive with the "Miracle Day" arc of that series). Like Amell, Ambrose is a great actor...they both just need really juicy material to develop their characters next season.

    Agreed.

    I'd forgotten that Ambrose was in that last Torchwood series (which, you're right, wasn't the best -- but especially since it was following on the heels of "Children of Earth," a truly superb miniseries). I'm most familiar with her work on Six Feet Under.

    Amell I know from that short-lived Tomorrow People reboot a few years ago and from playing Firestorm during the Flash's first season.

    OMG, don't I know it. The "Children of Earth" arc was amazing TV! I personally think that RTD was blinded by the almighty dollar when it came to Miracle Day that he lost sight of the plot and that there were far too many cooks in the kitchen writing/producing it that it was trying to please both British and American execs and audiences.

    Anyway, I digress. Assuming everybody now accepts the existence of extraterrestrial life after the public appearance of UFO's at the end of S10 (unless there is mass memory wipes) I wonder if they should expand the X-Files Division beyond the basement office now that they've been validated and so it gives more purpose for Miller and Einstein to be working alongside Mulder and Scully... and perhaps Reyes too depending on what her role in S11 is.

    I like that idea. A group of special agents investigating cases. Robert Patrick said he's open to returning as Doggett, so he could easily be added to the mix, too. Skinner's role could be much more substantial in this situation -- think General Hammond overseeing the various SG teams. This, of course, has spin-off potential written all over it.

    For these ten episodes, though, I'd prefer the focus to remain squarely on Mulder and Scully. Maybe with the occasional assist from one or two of the others in an episode, but let them utilize Duchovny & Anderson as much as possible in what may be their final outing as the special agents. It would be kind of cool to just get references to the other characters and their whereabouts.

    For instance, Mulder & Scully are looking into a monster terrorizing a small town in Montana and they mention in dialogue that Miller & Einstein are interviewing witnesses to strange lights in the skies over Detroit or Reyes is working undercover to expose the new Conspiracy of Men (#ReyesRedemption). That sort of thing. The actors themselves don't need to appear and it helps to suggest a wider X-Files universe is at work.

    If their son William shows up on the show, maybe he could be incorporated into the "family business" of paranormal investigation.

    I read a news item on Facebook yesterday where Gillian Anderson says this newest season of the show will be her last. She apparently announced it at a recent Con. She was asked whether she'll miss the show, and she said to ask in a couple of years to see how she feels at that time.
