New 21-Minute X-Files Preview Explores Show’s Mythology While Raising a Bunch of New Questions

Recommended Videos

We’re less than a month away from the return of a sci-fi TV classic! The X-Files returns for a revival miniseries January 24th on FOX, and now the network has released an awesome, 21-minute preview where Chris Carter and the cast delve into what we can come to expect from the revival, what questions from the show’s mythology will be answered, and what new questions will arise at this point in Mulder and Scully’s lives. Check it out below! **Mild spoilers if you wanna go into the miniseries knowing absolutely nothing.**

Fans will love this pretty thorough glimpse into what’s next for Mulder and Scully, including their feelings regarding the child they had to put up for adoption (!!!) and just how the Cigarette Smoking Man can possibly even be on this show (!!!!!!!!!).

What do you think, XPhiles? Are you excited about the upcoming miniseries? What do you think of the info in this preview? Let’s talk X-Files! (I’m so excited that I get to say that and have it be current in 2015!)
