x-files posters

Are you tired of new promos for the upcoming revival of The X-Files? Of course not. Every new The X-Files trailer or image sends waves of nostalgia and delight down our spines – this series always pushed such a specific, geeky button. Now, a trio of new posters have arrived online and while they’re pretty straightforward, they do offer our first real look at the return of the show’s greatest villain. Yep, that’s William B. Davis as the Smoking Man, sharing an image with the rest of the main cast.

Check out the rest of the X-Files posters after the jump.

x-files spin-off

The upcoming X-Files revival most likely functions on its own, as a brief return to the popular, conspiracy-laden world of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. However, you just know that series creator Chris Carter and Fox both hope this thing is huge, allowing them to keep the aliens and black oil and weekly supernatural threats coming for the foreseeable future. After all, resurrecting beloved shows to appease a dedicated fanbase is all the rage these days. Why not the best genre show of the ’90s?

But if The X-Files is to continue beyond this event series, it may take on a new form. With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson not wanting for work elsewhere, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility to see a new set of (younger! hipper!) agents pick up where Mulder and Scully left off. And since the new batch of episodes introduce some fresh-faced characters, rumors of a potential spin-off have taken root.

new x-files trailer

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.

x-files trailer

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.

x-files promo

If nothing else, the upcoming revival of The X-Files will provide a welcome electric shock to our nostalgia. Yes, we’d very much like to see David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson‘s Dana Scully solving supernatural mysteries on television again, thank you very much. Still, nothing gives us the warm back-of-the-neck tingles like the thought of William B. Davis‘ Cigarette-Smoking Man (or Smoking Man, or Cancer Man, or C.G.B. Spender or whatever we’re calling him these days) finding a way to return from the grave. After all, he died on the original series. Twice. And yet here is his voice, casually wedged into a new promo for the new episodes.

Pick apart the new X-Files promo for yourself after the jump.

x-files box set

Update: Additional information on the set, including a full list of bonus features, a new picture of the packaging, and an official pre-order site, has arrived online.

The upcoming revival of The X-Files is an actual thing and not a figment of our collective imaginations. Yes, there is actually new X-Files material set to air on televisions that don’t exist entirely inside our minds. We know this because there are photos from the set and trailers online. 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.
