The X-Files — Official Trailer


added: Tue, Sep 29th '15

UPDATE: FOX has just released the official two-minute-long trailer for "The X-Files" revival series, giving fans their best look yet at the much-anticipated return of Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), and Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) -- plus, there's a teaser glimpse of the "Smoking Man" (William B. Davis).

The limited event series, which will only consist of six episodes, is bringing Mulder and Scully back for a new paranormal investigation, which will somehow involve a conspiracy theorist and talk show host, played by Community's Joel McHale. "X-Files" creator Chris Carter is writing and directing the opening and closing episodes, while former "X-Files" producers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, and James Wong are handling the rest of the four episodes.

FOX is set to launch the revival series with a two-night premiere starting on Sunday, January 24, 2016, following the NFC Championship Game, and then on Monday, January 25. The series will then complete its run in its regular Monday night time slot.

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.
