“THE X-FILES” Revival Debuts Epic Final Trailer!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
There are few horror events this year as highly anticipated as the re-opening of THE X-FILES with the return of the show’s principal cast in tow for a 5-week, 6-episode event. And while the future of the series beyond that point has yet to be determined, fans finally have their first substantial look at the series, which looks bigger and bolder than ever before!
For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for the X-FILES revival:
Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES is a thrilling, six-episode event series from 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. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI Asst. Dir. Walter Skinner, Mulder and Scully’s boss, who walks a fine line between loyalty to these investigators and accountability to his superiors. The upcoming event series will encompass a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee.
With new episodes directed by Chris Carter, James Wong, Darin Morgan and Glen Morgan, THE X-FILES debuts with a two-night premiere on January 24th at 10 p.m. ET/PT with a second episode airing on January 25th at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Also returning for the 6-episode event series are Annabeth Gish as Monica Reyes, William B. Davis as The Smoking Man, Sheila Larken as Margaret Scully as well as Bruce Harwood, Dean Haglund and Tom Braidwood as The Long Gunmen. Stay tuned for more X-FILES coverage here at FANGORIA.com!
