This X-Files teaser based on a recent real event asks if we’re truly alone
“Ask yourself,” Mulder says in this new teaser for The X-Files, “are we truly alone?” That’s the question many must’ve been asking when they saw a strange comet-like light in the night sky on November 7, 2015.
Yes, this did happen. I remember many people posting about it on Facebook and Twitter and every other social media outlet available. And I remember the news stating that it was some kind of missile test. Or that’s what we’re led to believe. Of course, there are people out there that don’t believe that answer for a second.
But still, if you’re wondering about it, you must ask yourself if we’re truly alone out here in the great wide ever-expanding universe.
Aside from that, how elated were the people behind The X-Files when they saw this latest video that they could use. To bring even more interested parties to watch a series that we thought would no longer hit our small screens. Even if it’s only for six episodes, it’s going to be great to see Mulder and Scully in action again. Because the truth really is still out there! #IWanttoBelieve #TheXFiles

Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES is a thrilling, six-episode event series from creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI ASST. DIR. WALTER SKINNER, Mulder and Scully’s boss, who walks a fine line between loyalty to these investigators and accountability to his superiors. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. THE X-FILES debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The upcoming event series will encompass a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. 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.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.
