News broke last week that “The X-Files” would be returning in the form of a six-part event series, resulting in utter chaos within Indiewire’s LA office. Fox’s confirmation of the long-rumored revitalization sent the TV team into a tizzy, translating to what’s hopefully a feeling of palpable excitement via the new episode of Indiewire’s Very Good TV Podcast.

Either way, this week’s episode focuses on all things “X-Files” before jumping into an NBC summer schedule that features both original stars in new, separate series. David Duchovny picks up the badge again for the hotly-anticipated crime thriller “Aquarius” while Gillian Anderson joins the cast of “Hannibal.” Both series debut this summer — likely while “The X-Files” is shooting its new episodes — but what else does the Peacock have on the docket? Where do they stand without a landmark comedy leading the way? What’s their brand in 2015? And, of course, who the heck is Odelle?!

You can listen to the episode above, dear readers, and don’t forget to subscribe via Soundcloud or iTunes. There will be more “X-Files” news, discussion and debate to come, so fans won’t want to miss out on future episodes. Non-fans, well… Don’t judge us. I mean, who didn’t lose their voice when they saw these tweets?
