None of the trailers for the revival of The X-Files have given us a solid handle on what exactly to expect from the upcoming six-episode event series. We know that something convinces David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder to dive back into the world of paranormal investigation and that he drags Gillian Anderson‘s Dana Scully along for the ride. We know to expect the return of Mitch Pileggi‘s Agent Skinner, William B. Davis‘ Smoking Man, and the Lone Gunmen. We know that Joel McHale and Robbie Amell have joined the cast as new characters. We know that the truth is still out there, to trust no one, etc.
Don’t expect any grand plot revelations from the latest trailer, which is once again full of images that demand you attention, not story hooks. However, this new batch of footage does focus on a few of the threats that will face our intrepid FBI agents this season, so it is very much worth 30 seconds of your time.
Prepare yourself for certain danger and watch the new X-Files trailer below.

Hi, internet. We know you’re very excited about the new Star Wars movie and that awesome new trailer, but let’s not lose focus. Let’s not forget that another iconic geek franchise is returning very soon and that we deserve to give it a portion of our enthusiasm and attention. When the six-episode revival of The X-Files arrives in January, we fully expect you to devote at least some frothing and/or screaming and/or obsessive theorizing to the new adventures of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. It’s only right. It’s only fair!
So take a break from Star Wars for a second and watch the new X-Files trailer after the jump. Cleanse the palate with some government conspiracies and whatnot.

However, we also know this because Fox is releasing a new Blu-ray box set collecting the entire original series and the collection’s box art has officially been revealed. It’s like they wanted to capitalize on our excitement and get us to purchase an expensive and grandiose object to celebrate our obsession!
Yep, they’ve got us. Check out the art for the X-Files box set and other details after the jump.

The revival of The X-Files coming to Fox in January just got a little more crowded with some familiar faces from the original run of the sci-fi series.
It’s a no-brainer that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, but otherwise the only other returning faces reported have been Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner and William B. Davis as Cigarette-Smoking Man. There have also been rumors of Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick returning as agents Monica Reyes and John Doggett, but it hasn’t been confirmed.
But now we have as close to official word as we can get that the trio known as The Lone Gunmen will also back back for The X-Files revival. Find out more about The Lone Gunmen returning to The X-Files after the jump! Read More »
For fans of The X-Files, the return of their favorite series in January of 2016 is already fantastic enough. But one massive fan of the sci-fi series that launched in the 90s is even more excited, because he actually gets to be part of the revival with Mulder and Scully.
Comedian Kumail Nanjiani has been making waves with a series regular role on the HBO comedy series Silicon Valley, but he’s also a very successful stand-up comedian with a podcast called The X-Files Files, which runs through each episode of the series one-by-one, talking about it with various guests from comedians to bloggers. Now he’ll have a small role in one of the episodes of The X-Files event series coming next year.

The revival of Fox’s ’90s hit series, which originally ran nine seasons from 1993 to 2002, once again features David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as the lead characters, former FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Not long ago, a social media post gave us a minor look at Anderson and Duchovny in character, and now a set of new X-Files photos offers fans more to take in. Read More »

Details on Chris Carter‘s new X-Files series are as well-protected as the truth about some of the series’ obsessions. We do know a few things, however. The six-episode “event season” premieres in January 2016, and will feature Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprising the central roles of Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.
Additionally, Mitch Pileggi is on hand to play FBI Assistant Director Skinner. And William B. Davis, who played Skinner’s one-time ally and one of the show’s primary antagonists, will reprise his role as the Cigarette Smoking Man.
So with more people coming back, fans might think it’s a shame to see only six new episodes. Duchovny may agree. He has long been a cheerleader for the continuation of the series on film, and he’s already saying he’d be game to do a second season. Read More »
