As much as FOX’s imminent X-Files revival seeks to answer long-held questions among the fans, the new six-episode series may also attract new audiences to nine seasons’ worth of conspiracy. To wit, what better way to begin the revival’s premiere than a full retread of the series’ history? See for yourself in the first full-minute clip!

Short, but sweet is the name of the game for our imminent X-Files revival, two mythology episodes sandwiching four classic standalone cases. Many a fan have already seen or caught wind of the January 24 premiere “My Struggle,” but find out what super-powered strangeness brings Mulder and Scully back together in the two-night premiere’s second hour “Founder’s Mutation”!
There’s only so much left to say of FOX’s 2016 X-Files revival until the thing actually premieres on January 24, but by gum, FOX is going to give it a whirl. Straight from the cast and crew’s mouth, check out 20 minutes of new preview footage for Mulder and Scully’s grand return to the cases that made them famous!
It’s hard to believe that new X-Files episodes will arrive in just over a month’s time, even as debate rages over the balance between our 2016 revival’s two mythology episodes, and standalone “monster of the week” hours within. Now, a new featurette for the January premiere sees cast and crew discussing the approach, and what great X-Files mysteries might end up solved.
The limited six-episode nature of The X-Files 2016 return means a limited reserve of footage with which to tease the January premiere, but Mulder and Scully can certainly find other ways to build the hype. Case in point, UFO sightings are popping up all over the country, according to the latest X-Files return teaser.
We’ve seen plenty of X-Files footage and teasers by now, but with only six episodes arriving in 2016, and only two of them mythology-based at that, one wonders how many real spoilers will emerge from that long-dusty file cabinet. Plenty, as it turns out, thanks to a spoilery new super-quick teaser from Gillian Anderson!
Much as we never thought we’d say it, The X-Files has shown us enough of its six-episode revival by all the weekly trailers accompanying Gotham. That said, at least one shadowy, smokey figure has yet to show his face, remedied by the first official key art of FOX’s 2016 revival, even without an official explanation.
Broadcast TV has seen some muted ups and downs in the 2015-2016 season, though no official cancellations have taken place. Still, change is all around for FOX in 2016, banishing Sleepy Hollow to Fridays, while slotting in premieres for DC’s Lucifer, New Girl, and American Idol’s final bow.
The moment FOX’s revived X-Files announced that The Flash and Six Feet Under alums Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose would appear as a pair of upstart FBI agents, the TV-minded knew a spinoff might be in the cards. It seems that was in fact the case, at least initially, but has creator Chris Carter abandoned plans for a series without Mulder and Scully?
FOX had itself a big week, between debuting yet another X-Files promo and improbably crossing over Bones and Sleepy Hollow, so what’s one more look at Mulder and Scully before Halloween? The monsters are on full display in two new trailers, along with a new poster to remind us that we are not alone.
