Fox has released a new video as well as three new posters for its eagerly anticipated The X-Files revival series.
Titled "Show & Not Tell," the video features star Gillian Anderson, aka Dana Scully, telling us, “As you know, The X-Files is shrouded in mystery, and I can't really tell you very much about anything, really. But I think I can show you this ...” right before we're shown a quick montage of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it footage, including a crashed UFO and an alien autopsy. “Cool, huh?” she concludes. (Not cool! We want to see MOAR.)
As well as featuring standalone cases, the six-episode event series promises to further the major mythology, so I’m looking forward to finally getting some long-awaited answers. Along with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their iconic roles of Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully, The X-Files revival will see the return of Mitch Pileggi as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner and William B. Davis as the mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man. Guest-starring are Joel McHale, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Annet Mehendru, Rhys Darby and Kumail Nanjiani.
The X-Files will debut with a special two-night event beginning on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016, at 10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT, after the NFC Championship game and continuing with its time period premiere on the next day, Monday, Jan. 25, at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT on Fox.
In the first episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. Check out the video and posters below and let us know if you'll be tuning in to The X-Files.
