If you were watching Thursday night’s new episode of Wayward Pines (and you should've been), you would've seen a new promo for the new 6-episode event series of The X-Files. It's short, but it's packed with all sorts of goodies to ponder while awaiting the next teaser/promo/trailer/whatever...
Whoa, did someone just walk all over Mulder’s “I Want to Believe” poster? Shots fired!
If the excitement being experienced for the revival series wasn’t already at an all-time high, that will have certainly done the trick. From the moody lighting, mixed with Scully’s fiery mane and iconic theme song, I'm in a mental whirlwind of conspiracy theories once again.
Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015.There was quite a lot packed into that 15-second clip that it may very well be safe to say that the truth is in there…somewhere. We will find out when The X-Files returns, Sunday January 24 2016.
THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
