My dear X-Filers, the truth is still out there! In seven days, on Sunday, January 24th, Fox will reveal the X-Files once again. What we once thought was the end, begins again. I can’t tell you how excited I am for the re-opening of this great show! David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully in the upcoming event series, which will encompass a mixture of stand-alone investigative episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.
Over these past many years, there was always speculation that this show might return one day. And now, with updated glee, we will again get to hear that creepy but enticing opening music and see our beloved characters on the screen, together again. I have seen the first episode! Sometimes the perks of being an entertainment writer, gets you perks. And this was one perk that truly thrilled me! If you want all the good warm fuzzy feels, that you used to get while watching this show, they are still there. The hair at the back of my neck stood up, once that music started. Seeing Scully and Mulder on screen together again, was a great win! You will enjoy this series, as much as you used to! It’s almost as if it never went off the air, it is that good! So watch with me during the two night premiere. Part one is on Sunday, January 24th, and part two is on Monday, January 25th at 10pm/9 central on FOX!
