Fox is taking the mysterious route while generating some buzz for The X-Files' long-awaited return, and we have a brand new teaser trailer to stress over for the weekend.

The network has released an all-too-brief, 15-second teaser for the new miniseries set to hit the network in January 2016. What do we see? A whole lot, believe it or not, considering we’re talking about some relatively tiny snippets of footage. Get ready: There are a whole lot of mysteries coming.

The trailer opens with what appears to be a UFO crash, with a group of soldiers walking up to check it out with smoldering wreckage in the background (a flashback, perhaps?), then we cut to two bloody bodies being dragged through a warehouse setting. Then, we have a quick shot of some type of implant in an unknown person’s neck, and finally — someone is tearing up Mulder’s pad. His iconic “I Want To Believe” poster? It’s on the floor, being walked on.

Lastly, we get the money shot — Mulder and Scully, bursting into a darkened scene with their iconic flashlights  at the ready. Can January get here any sooner, please?

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
