We’re still several months away from the return of The X-Files, but tonight, FOX has given fans an early peak at the new season. Check out a brief, mysterious, exciting 15-second teaser trailer below.
The new season, the first in the series in 13 years, will premiere January 26th, 2016 on FOX. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are on board to return as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for the six-episode mini-season, which will be a mixture of serialized storytelling and one-off monster episodes.
Other returning characters include Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis, who’ll be playing Walter Skinner and The Smoking Man, respectively. New additions to the cast include Joel McHale as Tad O’Malley, “the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder,” and Annet Mahendru (The Americans) as Sveta, “who believes she’s regularly abducted by aliens.”
