MUTANT X UPDATE
Tribune Media's Seth Howard told The Continuum an upcoming episode of Mutant X will be written by a special guest writer and have major ramifications for the show. Howard said he can't reveal the writer's name yet. "I can tell you that the story is tentatively titled 'One Step Closer' and it has to do with Brennan's sudden mutation," Howard said. "This is a huge event in our heroes' lives."
Following this week's new episode, "Body and Soul," reruns of Mutant X will include "Past as Prologue" the week of Dec. 2, "Power Play" the week of Dec. 9, "Time Squared" the week of Dec. 16, "Whose Woods These Are" the week of Dec. 23, "The Future Revealed" the week of Dec. 30 and "No Man Left Behind" the week of Jan. 6.
