Here’s the truth (pun totally intended): There’s no better way to prepare for the “The X-Files” reboot about 202 days away than to watch all of its previous episodes.

And that’s a whopping total of 201 episodes.

It makes sense though, right? In 202 days, “The X-Files” will enter its 202nd episode. For now, there are 201 episodes. And Fox is counting down to the series’ anticipated return with an episode-a-day viewing schedule (not including feature films “The X-Files: Fight the Future” or “The X-Files: I Want to Believe”), starting with the pilot.

The event trailer also includes the first footage of the revival, and it’s familiar in the best way: Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Scully (played by Gillian Anderson) charge through a door into a dark room, lit only by the beams of their flashlights.

The X-Files Reboot

They’re barely visible so this actually barely qualifies as a teaser. But keep in mind that the production on the “The X-Files” reboot is still underway. And even these few precious seconds are enough to send chills running through the show’s biggest fans, which is as good an excuse as any to watch those few seconds on a loop for the next 201 days – or at least until the next trailer comes out.

Fox released a blink-and-you-will-miss-it teaser trailer feature new footage from the upcoming “The X-Files” reboot. About all 10 seconds of it! Are you ready for this? No, no you’re not.
