Today we have a look at the first minute of the premier episode of the return of the ‘X-Files‘! This will be the first time we have a new X-Files episode in nearly 20 years. Check out the clip below and let us know if you are excited for the return of the X-Files AFTER THE JUMP!
The clip, narrated by Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), shows a montage of old photos as Mulder details his past, explaining his obsession with aliens and search for his abducted sister. While the short clip only features photos, Mulder does mention his former partner Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
It’s not long before viewers will actually get to see Mulder and Scully on screen again. The first episode follows the pair as they take on a case of a possible alien abductee.
The six-episode series will feature both stand-alone episodes and ones that delve further into the original show’s seminal mythology. Thirteen years after the original series’ run, “The X-Files” revival debuts in two parts beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 after the NFC Championship Game and launches its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 at 8 pm.
The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”) and Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”).
