It’s been thirteen years since the 9th and final season of The X-Files wrapped up, and though a movie followed in the wake of the series (in 2008), it’s still been many years since we’ve seen Mulder and Scully back on the screen. In 2016, the dynamic duo reunites to continue uncovering the truth.
The fan-favorite show returns for a six-episode revival in January of next year, which will essentially be the 10th season of the series. Most exciting of all is the fact that both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will be reprising their iconic roles, making this a real treat for X-Files fans.
While we wait, check out the official trailer for the revival below, along with all the info you need!
The brand new season of The X-Files will premiere at 10pm on Sunday, January 24th, 2016. The show returns the very next night for the second episode, with the subsequent four hitting Fox on Monday nights at 8pm.
In addition to Mulder and Scully, other characters making their triumphant returns in 2016 include FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner and the so-called ‘Cigarette Smoking Man.’
Series creator Chris Carter, who is again in charge, said that the revival will be comprised of both mythology episodes and standalone monster-of-the-week tales, in the style of the original series. Writers Glen Morgan and James Wong are also back, as is Glen’s brother Darin.
