FOX's The X-Files — Final Trailer: 'The Truth is Still Out There'


added: Fri, Jan 15th '16

The return of "The X-Files" is almost here. And FOX has released what is likely the final trailer for the upcoming six-episode revival series, which is set to premiere later this month.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are reprising their iconic '90s TV characters as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who both have left their agency jobs since the X-Files have been permanently closed by the government. Though Mulder explains in the new preview that his "personal obsession" with UFOs and alien abductions has remained completely intact.

And for those fans who are still debating whether "The Smoking Man" (played by William B. Davis) actually met his demise in the original series -- well, it certainly seems he has returned as well. And he is still very much in the thick of it: "We have a small problem. They've reopened the X-Files." And you know what that means: "The truth is still out there."

"The X-Files" returns with a two-night premiere on January 24 and 25 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.
