FOX teases X-Files return with first-look video

It’s been thirteen years since the original X-Files series ran on FOX but the popular duo are back in action with a new trailer from the network.

The new X-FILES event will consist of six-episodes, helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, THE X-FILES is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
