‘X-Files’ Revival Drops Classified Spoilers in Lightning-Quick 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!
FOX’s 2016 X-Files revival played a little game with fans, promising to reveal exclusive content with 10K total retweets, preceding a teaser that finally arrived late Thursday. We won’t spoil it all (mostly because we don’t love you enough to go through every flash frame), but there’s definitely at least one notable caller on Scully’s phone that should raise an eyebrow or two.
While we’re at it, have some creepy new posters!
Thus far, FOX’s X-Files return has confirmed the Lone Gunmen, Annabeth Gish, Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis to reprise their roles beside David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, while Community star Joel McHale will play a conservative pundit who tasks Mulder and Scully with investigating a woman claiming to have been abducted (The Americans star Annet Mahendru). Additionally, comedian and superfan Kumail Nanjiani will play a small role, while Flash star Robbie Amell and Six Feet Under alum Lauren Ambrose will play a pair of confident new FBI agents.
On the creative side, writers and producers Chris Carter, Glen Morgan and Jim Wong will return to write and direct, and composer Mark Snow also aboard.
Plenty more details will arise before the official January 24 premiere, but rewatch the X-Files trailers below, and prepare for the truth to return in 2016.
