“The truth is out there..”
We’re less than 2 weeks away from the premiere of the “The X-Files” revival series. By now, you would’ve watched every single teaser video ever released on the official “The X-Files” YouTube channel.
But just in case you’ve forgotten all about how it all began for FBI special agent Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny), he’s here to remind you once again. FOX (the channel, not the FBI dude) just released the first minute of the first episode of the “The X-Files” reboot.
Titled “My Struggle”, the clip opens with Mulder showing a montage of old photos and documents as he narrates his past. He talks about his obsession with aliens and attributes it to the disappearance of his sister which he believes was an alien abduction.
He would then go on to talk briefly about his work as a paranormal investigator for the FBI unit known as “The X-Files”. And introduce his former partner Dana Scully (played by Gillian Anderson) before going on to explain the reason why the FBI decided to close “The X-Files”.
Then, everything goes up in flames and we’re left with Mulder saying:
And our investigations ceased. But my personal obsession did not.
Oh man, such goosebumps.
You ready? Watch:
The “The X-Files” 6-episode revival series will feature both stand-alone episodes and ones that delve further into the original show’s seminal mythology.
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”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man”.
It’ll debut in 2 parts – on 24th January and 25th January.
We can’t wait :)
