Get ready for The X-Files revival with a first look at the new season

Fox has released a first look promo for its upcoming The X-Files revival series featuring some cool behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew and some snippets of new footage.

Featuring the eagerly anticipated return of Special Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), the show is returning for a six-episode event series at the end of January where the new episodes will not only delve into the show’s seminal mythology (that’d be the first and the sixth episodes) but also feature some cool standalone cases as well — including some new monsters. But fear not! Government conspiracies, aliens and UFOs are also on the menu.

Along with Agents Mulder and Scully, The X-Files will also see the return of Mitch Pileggi as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner and William B. Davis as the mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man. Guest-starring are Joel McHale, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Annet Mehendru, Rhys Darby and Kumail Nanjiani.


The X-Files two-night event begins on Jan. 24, at 10 p.m., after the NFC Championship game, and continues with its regular time period premiere on Jan. 25, at 8 p.m., on Fox.
