The truth is out there, and that truth is that the X-Files returns to Fox this January. The continuing adventures of Mulder and Scully will debut after the network’s coverage of the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 24. Check out the teaser trailer below and, be warned, it is a teaser. It lasts a whole 15 seconds, but at the end when you see the logo come up and that familiar music start to play, just tell us that you can’t help but feel those old familiar goosebumps ride up your neck.
Both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are still looking hot. With this new show produced by none other than X-Files creator, Chris Carter, we are hoping for great things. Some people will claim this is only another ploy to play off our nostalgia, but even if it is, that does not mean we do not have high hopes. X-Files was the precursor to the type of high quality episodic storytelling that is so common on TV today. It is only fitting that the show comes back to reclaim the title.
In preparation for the shows return, we at The NYRD will be binge watching all of Entertainment Weekly’s recommended 10 essential episodes that every super-fan needs to rewatch before January.
