Every X-Files fan remembers the inbred Peacock family. The second episode of season four, “Home”, has gone down in history as the scariest episode of The X-Files ever…and it could be getting a long-awaited sequel.
Now TV Line is reporting that the second episode of the revival is titled “Home Again”, and it’s written by one of the original writers:
“For starters, Episode 2 of the six-episode continuation is titled â€œHome Again.â€ Whatâ€™s more, the writer-director of the episode is Glen Morgan, who just so happened to pen the the original â€œHomeâ€ with fellow X scribe James Wong.”
And it’ll be a monster of the week episode:
“Remember the freakish Peacock clan at the center of â€œHomeâ€? Well, â€œHome Againâ€ may out-Monster of the Week those inbred savages via â€œBand-Aid Nose Man.â€ Described as intimidating, odd, weary, creepy and immeasurably strong, Mr. Man is a powerful, violent and frightening â€œthoughtâ€ come to life.”
It’ll be hard to live up to the original Home, but we’ll know how scary this one will be when it airs early next year.
