The Lone Gunmen was a television show created by Chris Carter and broadcast on FOX. It was a spin off of Carter's popular long running television series The X-Files and a part of The X-Files franchise, starring several of the show's characters. The Lone Gunmen was first broadcast in March 2001 and, despite positive reviews, its ratings dropped. The program was cancelled after twelve episodes. The last episode was broadcast in June 2001 and ended on a cliffhanger which was resolved in a ninth season episode of The X-Files entitled "Jump the Shark".

The series revolved around the three characters of The Lone Gunmen; Melvin Frohike, John Fitzgerald Byers and Richard Langly, a group of "geeky" investigators who ran a conspiracy theory magazine. They had often helped FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files.

Typical plots

Unlike The X-Files, whose storylines dealt mainly with supernatural creatures and government alien conspiracies, episodes of The Lone Gunmen generally featured more "plausible" plots, such as government sponsored terrorism, the creeping government-induced police state surveillance society, cheating husbands, corporate crime, arms-dealers, and escaped Nazis. The show had a light atmosphere and focused heavily on physical comedy. The trio were often aided (and sometimes hindered) by a mysterious thief named Yves Adele Harlow (Zuleikha Robinson).

The series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadamarker.

Characters and cast



Yves Adele Harlow is the alias for a fictional character who sometimes works with the Lone Gunmen (though she's sometimes at odds with them, as her goals are rarely as selfless as theirs) and often employs various disguises. Her actual name is Lois Runtz, and she is the daughter of an arms dealer. Jimmy Bond is emotionally attached to her, although his feelings are unrequited. The alias is an anagram for Lee Harvey Oswald. She is played by British actress Zuleikha Robinson.

David Duchovny (Fox Mulder), Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and Michael McKean (Morris Fletcher) from The X-Files made guest appearances on the show.
