New footage from FOX’s The X-Files revival
Beginning today, FOX will be starting a 201-day “X-Files” marathon in which one episode a day will be shown in order, leading to the January 24, 2016 premiere of the six-episode revival of “The X-Files.” A new trailer for the marathon also has a brief tease of new footage featuring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. You can check it out below!
Mitch Pileggi has also confirmed that he’ll be back as Walter Skinner, and Joel McHale will play a conservative internet news anchor in the new episodes. Previous reports indicate that William B. Davis’ Cigarette-Smoking Man and Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick’s special agents Monica Reyes and John Doggett are also set to return, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
“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.
The X-Files might not be coming to Comic-Con, but Fox has made this week a big one for fans.
The show’s social media accounts announced — via Twitter — that they’ll be counting down the 201 days until the 2016 revival by revisiting an episode a day of the original series. (The episodes are currently available to stream via Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix, and the entire series is available on DVD. There are no plans, as of now, to put the episodes on Fox’s On Demand or digital app.)
And, as a bonus, the trailer for the rewatch features the first new footage of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) — at the 32-second mark in the video below — as the duo search for something in the dark.
(Of note: If you want to get the full X-Files experience, the plan does not include the two movies the show spawned.)
