We have some good new for you X-Files-philes (see what I did there?) regarding the much-awaited revival. A "First Look" promo video has been released, and we can now get a look at the cast, the crew, and what to expect in the next six episodes.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully in the upcoming event series which will encompass a mixture of stand-alone investigative 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.
January is right around the corner, and I expect to find everyone glued to their screens watching the two-night special beginning on Sunday, January 24th and continuing onto Monday, January 25th on Fox.
I can't wait to see Scully and Mulder back in action, uncovering the science and the paranormal behind every mystery.
I also can't wait to see how their chemistry has evolved after so long.
