X-Files' Gillian Anderson blames Vancouver's moistness for original tension on set

      The truth is back out there. On TV, that is.

      Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are set to reappear as FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on the flat screen this Sunday (January 24) on Fox (not to be confused with Mulder) in the six-part series The X-Files, a revival of the popular Vancouver-shot paranormal mystery series that ran from 1993 to 2002.

      Apparently, even the Lone Gunmen are set to return to the series, even though they were killed off in Season 9.

      New characters include comedian Joel McHale as a conspiracy theory talk-show host.

      Local settings that the new series was shot in include Ashcroft, North Vancouver, and the Terminal City Club.

      On January 12, Anderson and Duchovny appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about the series. Interestingly enough, when they were asked about what caused tension on the set between them, Anderson said it was because Vancouver is very "moist".

      That's dangerous territory to get into, as Duchovny was vilified by locals for comments during the shooting of the original series about Vancouver raining too much. (Even though we all complain about the rain ad nauseum.) The show eventually relocated to L.A.

      So Raincouverties, if we want to keep the show shooting here, don't get upset this time around.
