Yesterday we posted a low-res promo for the upcoming X-Files revival. Fox has since released an official extended version of the spot that is sure to get fans of The X-Files excited for these six episodes that continue the mysterious adventures of Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
After the last X-Files movie was released, I honestly never thought that I’d see it come back like this. I hoped it would, but now that it’s actually happening, the excitement swelling within me is ready to explode! I’m just starting to come to terms with the fact that this is really happening. You’ve got to understand that the reason I feel this way is because I’m such a diehard fan of this franchise.
The X-Files returns January 24th, 2016 on Fox.
Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015.
THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
