Fox’s miniseries revival of popular ’90s show premieres January 2016
In a new promo for the upcoming “X-Files” miniseries, we get our first look at Mulder and Scully in action.
The two FBI agents are seen bursting into a darkened room with their guns drawn, presumably on the search for something related to the paranormal.
The video was released as part of Fox’s “201 Days of ‘The X-Files'” promotion for the show’s upcoming miniseries revival. If fans start watching one episode per day beginning July 7, they will finish the series on January 24, 2016, the day the new miniseries premieres.
During its initial nine-season run, “The X Files” became one of the most successful television dramas of all time, hitting a peak ratings high in 1997 when more than 27 million people tuned in to the Season 5 premiere. The show had earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award.
