The X-Files Mega Buzz: Scully Gets a New Love Interest!

Mulder best watch out

Sadie Gennis

Now that Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) have broken up, the scientist will be getting a new suitor whenThe X-Files returns.

Conservative pundit and conspiracy theorist Tad O'Malley (Joel McHale) develops a crush on Scully (and isn't afraid to show it!) after reaching out to her and Mulder for help on a massive new case.

Of course, we doubt Mulder will be too happy to discover his new partner-in-paranoia is making googly eyes at the mother of his child. Because while Scully has done a fair job at moving on from their relationship, Mulder is still taking the breakup pretty hard, even going so far as to repeatedly make snide remarks about Scully leaving him. But hey, at least he still cares, right?

See what creator Chris Carter has to say about Mulder and Scully's relationship in the video below:
