After 13 long years, The X-Files will return to FOX airwaves on January 26th, 2016. In anticipation, the network has released a two-part teaser trailer, which you can watch below.
“In 2002, our investigation ceased, but my personal obsession did not,” Fox Mulder explains at the beginning of the first trailer. A mysterious man then reveals to our hero that the truth is finally within reach, which motivates the FBI special agent to seek help from an old friend.
In addition to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the new six-episode season will see the return of Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner, William B. Davis (The Smoking Man), and Annabeth Gish (FBI Agent Monica Reyes), as well as Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood (The Lone Gunmen). 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.”
Update: FOX just dropped a full two-minute trailer featuring more footage and further details on the new season.
