‘X-Files’ Event Revival Teases First Footage in FOX Marathon Promo
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!
FOX’s newest promo for The X-Files kicks off a 201-day airing of each episode, in order, all leading up to the January 24 premiere of our as-yet-untitled revival season. The new promo also accompanies a scant glimpse of new footage, in which, surprise-surprise, Mulder and Scully enter a dark room. With guns! Maybe there’s an alien hiding in the corner!
Thus far, FOX’s X-Files return has confirmed 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). On the creative side, writers and producers Chris Carter, Glen Morgan and Jim Wong will return to write and direct, with Frank Spotnitz also eyed to pitch in, and composer Mark Snow also coming aboard.
Plenty more details will arise in the meantime, but what wild conspiracy theories can we draw from Mulder and Scully’s 2016 X-Files return footage?
