“In 2002, your investigation ceased but my personal obsession did not.”
Fans of FOX’s “Gotham” and “Minority Report” were treated to the new “two-part” trailer for the “The X-Files” revival, set to return to FOX on January 24th, 2016.
The first part of the trailer shows Mulder and Scully, played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively, reuniting after some sort of mystery arises. As with “The X-Files”, almost nothing is revealed so as to keep the mystery as tight as possible. The second half gets far more exciting, promising intrigue, action, and suspense, all building up to a conspiracy that feels right at home in “The X-Files” universe.
The presumed dead Lone Gunmen – played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood – are set to return for an undisclosed arc. Robbie Amell (“The Flash”) and Lauren Ambrose (Psycho Beach Party) signed on as Agent Miller and Agent Einstein, respectively.
Mitch Pileggi returns as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner, while William B. Davis will be back as the iconic Cigarette-Smoking Man in the new short-stack order of 6-episodes. Joel McHale will play Tad O’Malley, a conservative news anchor who becomes an unlikely ally for Fox Mulder (Duchovny).
