The X-Files is yet another series that is getting the reboot treatment. The show developed a strong cult following when it first aired and now fans are eager to learn more about the six episode event series. Fox recently released a new promo for the premiere that shows what fans can expect when Scully and Mulder are reunited.
The series promises that Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood will be returning as Melvin Frohike, Ringo Langly, and John Fitzgerald Byers (aka the Lone Gunman conspiracy group). Fans will also be excited to know that the Cigarette Smoking Man, played by William B. Davis, and Walter Skinner, played by Mitch Pileggi, will be returning.
Half of the season will be written and directed by The X-Files creator Chris Carter and the others will be written and directed by series alums Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.
The X-Files is set to premiere at 10 pm/9 p.m. CT on Jan. 24, after the NFL's NFC Championship Game. But in the meantime, watch the new promo below to see what Scully and Mulder will be up to when the show premieres.
