‘The X-Files’ reopens with original stars in new, limited Fox series

Watch the new Trailer

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson X FILES

 

Fox has released a brand-new trailer of X-Files. On Sunday Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are back as agents Scully and Mulder, and aliens, monsters and paranormal. Episode one called My Struggle will broadcast on January 26 with episode named Founder’s Mutation airing the following evening (January 27).

Featuring a spooky slowed-down version of the X-Files theme tune, the trailer sees Mulder and Scully getting back to business as they run down shadowy hallways toward closed doors, finding dead bodies where they don’t belong, and facing up to lights in the sky.

“This is just the beginning, ” Scully says, which could be an indication of where the show is going after this six-episode run.

According to rte.ie, Creator Chris Carter revealed at the TCA press tour that he doesn’t see this as the end of the line for The X-Files. “If we do well in the ratings, I can’t imagine we wouldn’t be asked to do more, ” he said.

In an interview to QG, Anderson said:

Why has there been this de-nerdification of sci-fi as a genre?
Sci-fi is apocalyptic, and we are definitely by our own hand getting closer to the end of the world. Maybe it’s also that we’ve become so obsessed with escapism, and sci-fi is one of the best escapes. It just completely obliterates those petty mortgages, and the rising cost of school fees, and the fact that ISIS is taking over the world.

Is the new miniseries going to tap into some of the anxieties we have?
Definitely. Chris [Carter] loves that. It taps into the Zeitgeist, and it taps into paranoias and paints them as things that are in the future, so it’s easier to not get arrested for discussing them.
