Ahead of the two-night premiere of the upcoming X-Files revival series, a bunch of cool new pics from the first episode, “My Struggle,” have been released.
Returning for a 6-episode event series at the end of January, The X-Files reintroduces us to Special Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). I don't know about you guys, but I've really missed those two!
The Chris Carter series also sees the return of Mitch Pileggi as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner, Annabeth Gish as FBI Agent Monica Reyes, William B. Davis as the mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man and fan favorites the Lone Gunmen. Guest-starring are Joel McHale, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Annet Mehendru, Rhys Darby and Kumail Nanjiani.
Not only will we get to delve back into the show’s seminal mythology with aliens, UFOs and government conspiracies (yasss!) with the first and sixth episodes, but it'll also feature some brand-new standalone cases and new monsters as well (again, yasss!).
The first episode reunites Mulder and Scully after the couple has broken up when zealous Internet news anchor Tad O'Malley (McHale) points them in the direction of a potential alien abductee. Cue the theme song. Check out the pics in the gallery below, and let us know what you guys think.
The X-Files two-night event begins on Jan. 24, at 10 PM, after the NFC Championship game, and continues with its regular time period premiere on Jan. 25, at 8 PM on Fox. Are you excited for the return of Agents Mulder and Scully?
