The new episodes of The X-Files are just a few months away! Check out the evocative final posters, featuring the iconic “I want to believe” tagline.
It’s been 13 years since The X-Files ended its official run on Fox. Mulder and Scully hung up their badges (apart from the occasional movie), and the fandom slowly dispersed.
Flash forward to more than a decade later, and we still want to believe.
This is why Fox has decided to bring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny back for another chapter of The X-Files: Original creator Chris Carter has gotten the band back together for a six-episode event series, which premieres Sunday, January 24, 2016.
Here’s the final batch of posters, that bring back the nostalgia in full force:
The official synopsis for the X-Files revival series reads:
Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES is a thrilling, six-episode event series from creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI ASST. DIR. WALTER SKINNER, Mulder and Scully’s boss, who walks a fine line between loyalty to these investigators and accountability to his superiors. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.
Check out a trailer for the first episode, which calls back to another iconic quote from the original series: “The truth is out there.”
The X-Files returns on January 24, 2016, following the NFC Championship Game. Joining Anderson and Duchovny are Mitch Pileggi (Skinner), Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes), Dean Haglund (The Lone Gunman), and William B. Davis (the Cigarette Smoking Man). They are joined by Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, and Joel McHale.
