Great news for fans of The X-Files: The show is returning for a six-episode season! Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson, and David Duchovny are all signed to return. And according to TV Wise, they are also looking to bring back William B. Davis, Robert Patrick, Annabeth Gish, and Mitch Pileggi.

Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

This week is “Inside Man” (10.17). So far, we’ve got a promo, an extended promo, as well as the official synopsis, and promotional photos. Bobby’s coming back, y’all.

Very late, we got a producer’s preview for 10.16 last week, as well as a sneak peek.

There was a convention this weekend in Seattle. Spoilers were fairly vague (I think we’ve all heard the “Most intense season finale evah!” claim before), but there was at least one very intriguing bit. Someone asked Jensen Ackles point-blank about whether or not Dean now “knows he’s immortal.” Ackles’ response:

Are you saying that based off the fact that Dean’s died about thirty thousand times? Or are you referring to the Mark? You’re referring to the Mark of Cain. So, here’s my answer to that: I would say that Dean is not immortal, but perhaps his vessel could be. I would say that the Dean that we all know, and that is the brother of Sam, he could very easily go away. Something else could … you know … could become something, but it would not be the Dean that we know.

The synopsis for 10.18, “Book of the Damned,” is out (more Charlie, for our sins):

FELICIA DAY RETURNS AS CHARLIE – Charlie (guest star Felicia Day) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) to tell them she found the Book of the Dead which could help remove the Mark of Cain. The Winchesters race to her after she tells them she’s been shot by a man named Jacob Styne (guest star Jeff Branson) who says the book belongs to his family and he won’t rest until he gets it back. Castiel (Misha Collins) and Metatron (guest star Curtis Armstrong) take a road trip to find Castiel’s grace but they hit a couple of road bumps along the way. PJ Pesce directed this episode written by Robbie Thompson (#1018). Original airdate 4/15/2015.

Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. have started an IndieGoGo campaign for a web series called Kings of Con. It will continue until May 10.

Also, Ackles and Misha Collins are going head-to-head on a poll and it’s plastic swords at dawn.

Meanwhile, Ackles and others have been posting a few photos in Dean garb, including with new (and old) guest costars.

Finally, “Paint It Black” went up a bit in demo to a 0.7/2 in demo and down a little to 1.70 million in audience.

We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
