The Lone Gunmen was a television show created by Chris Carter, Vince Gilligan, John Shiban and Frank Spotnitz and was broadcast on the Fox network. It was a spinoff of Carter's popular long-running television series "The X-Files," starring several of the show's characters. The Lone Gunmen was first broadcast in March 2001 and ran for 13 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 of the same name. They had often helped FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully on The X-Files. Frohike was played by Tom Braidwood, Byers by Bruce Harwood, and Langly by Dean Haglund. Other series regulars were Stephen Snedden, as Jimmy Bond, and Zuleikha Robinson, as Yves Adele Harlow.
