‘The X-Files’ Revival Sets January 2016 Premiere With FOX Schedule
Amid the myriad of FOX’s pickups and surprising cancellations, the network has also taken its 2015 Upfront presentation to file out Mulder and Scully’s TV return. Not only will The X-Files formally return in January 2016, but so too has the network put the truth out there with its full future lineup.
Set to shoot this summer in Vancouver, The X-Files’ six-episode TV return has been scheduled to bow on Sunday, January 24 after the NFC Championship Game, subsequently settling into its regular time on Mondays at 8:00 P.M. Thus far, only David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi and the pool of creative talent have signed on for the return.
Elsewhere, FOX’s fall lineup will see Sleepy Hollow Season 3 moving to Thursdays from its Monday perch, where Gotham will now rest with the Minority Report sequel series. New Girl will also hang on until midseason, while Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens will also round out a new Tuesday lineup.
All told, here’s how FOX’s 2015 schedule shakes out, with new series in all-caps:
8 pm Gotham
9 pm MINORITY REPORT
8 pm GRANDFATHERED
8:30pm THE GRINDER
9 pm SCREAM QUEENS
