Fox is pulling out one of its big guns in an effort to upstage CBS during Super Bowl 50’s halftime show.
On Sunday, as Coldplay and Beyonce begin their Pepsi-sponsored performance, Fox will drop video from the season finale of its “X-Files” sequel.
The all-new footage will be available on Fox.com, Facebook, Twitter and Hulu — but only during halftime, the network said on Thursday. Until everyone on the Internet records and shares it, that is.
The “X-Files” reboot is already halfway through its short run, and has just three new episodes left.
On Monday, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are sent to investigate the murder of a city official, which, it seems, no human could have committed. Meanwhile, Scully deals with deep feelings about the child she gave up for adoption.
“X-Files” runs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox. Super Bowl 50 kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
