Californication may be wrapping up, but David Duchovny won't be off of our television screens for long. NBC has given a 13-episode order to Aquarius, a police thriller in which Duchovny will star. The series will take place in Los Angeles and revolve around the hunt for Charles Manson.
David will play an LAPD Sergeant with a "complicated personal life". Of the series he says, "I think Aquarius has a chance to be a special show and I can’t wait to get going."
It seems that both of our favorite former FBI Agents will be keeping NBC's show schedule full. We will keep you up to date as more details on the series emerge. Until then, read more over at Variety.
If there was ever a reason not to give up, Frank Spotnitz has one for you.

With the release of The X-Files: Conspiracy #2, IDW marks the end of this year’s crossover event that put us on a very entertaining journey, visiting the realities of The X-Files and Lone Gunmen, The Crow, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, and Ghostbusters.
The issue released today brings the story that began in January 2014 full circle, to where the Lone Gunmen received information from the future that a deadly virus would be making its way around to wipe out all of mankind. Their search for the truth and a cure not only involved the help of Mulder and Scully, but also scattered clues throughout the realities of the five franchises that crossed the tale.
Conspiracy #2 continues the jovial tone that this event has carried in the previous issues, but feels sturdier than the rest. It mixed effectively both the wrap-up of the story while also giving space to moments that are key to the characters.
