For as much anticipation builds toward FOX’s 2016 revival of The X-Files, it’s difficult to envision how much ground six episodes will cover, balancing stand-alone stories with the sci-fi drama’s layered mythology. FOX may not be so one-and-done with its new X-Files however, as its creator promises more Mulder and Scully to come, set to some very classic tunes.
The X-Files gave us a two-part tease of its 2016 event series revival last night, but like any good conspiracy, things are about to go much, much deeper. Watch Joel McHale threaten extraterrestrial terrorism in an extended full trailer for our new X-Files!
It's been a long time coming for Mulder and Scully's return (especially past that pesky 2012 alien invasion), but The X-Files have officially been re-opened. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny return, along with a host of familiar faces in the first of FOX's two-part 2016 X-Files trailer!
Unlike most fictional foils on television, Charles Manson is a name with which you’re already familiar. It’s a name that holds a certain sinister power, making the fictive version of the notorious maniac incredibly unnerving before he even hits the screen in Aquarius, NBC’s detective drama starring David Duchovny as an LAPD investigator whose latest case puts him face to face with the murderous Manson family. The first season of Aquarius hits DVD and Blu-ray today, and to honor the release we’re looking back at the film and television history of one of America’s most notorious criminals.
If you just can’t wait until January 24, 2016 to check out FOX’s revival of The X-Files, and if you just happen to be around New York next month, then you’re in luck: the network will debut the new premiere episode of The X-Files at New York Comic-Con with Spooky Mulder himself (that’s David Duchovny if you want to be proper).
Still a ways off in 2016, FOX’s X-Files event series revival has kept classified most of its footage and photos, but fans needn’t wait any longer for the reunion between FBI Assistant Director Skinner and his two weirdest agents. See the holy X-Files trinity reunite in a new photo of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and Mitch Pileggi!
However shrouded in mystery by its frustratingly short teasers, FOX’s 2016 X-Files revival seems to be jam-packing its six-episode run with past series stars. The latest at least offers some notable history for the franchise, as Annabeth Gish will return to the role of FBI agent Monica Reyes.
The X-Files’ 2016 return hasn’t revealed very much beyond a few photos and scant teases of new footage, but a number of familiar faces will at least populate Mulder and Scully’s revived investigation. Comedian and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani is the latest to sign on for The X-Files event series, but as whom?
Just before Comic-Con 2015, The X-Files made up for its absence with a marathon tease bringing just a fleeting glimpse of Mulder and Scully back in action, and with 2016 growing ever closer, that window is … still opening. One crack at a time. Let’s speculate wildly with 15 seconds of new X-Files footage!
The X-Files will remain closed as far as Comic-Con 2015, though we needn’t wait until January for our first look at Mulder and Scully back in action. Check out our first official footage from the 2016 event revival, as FOX sets up a mammoth 201-day catchup of the original series!
