You guys, it’s here. Okay it’s not technically here until January 2016, but thanks to Fox we just got our first look at the new series! Watch the first promo for ‘The X-Files’ here.
“We’re counting down to the next installment of #TheXFiles, watching 1 episode a day. Join us! #TheXFiles201Days,” the official Twitter account for The X-Files tweeted on July 7. And yes, there is a little bit of new footage of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back at it! You have to see this.The way-too-short promo lets us know that if you start watching one episode per day starting today, July 7, you will finish the original series on the day the new miniseries begins: January 24, 2016! The series is available on both Hulu and Netflix (if you don’t own the box set), and let me just say — it’s worth binging before the miniseries begins.
The clip is only 41 seconds and only offers a tiny bit of new footage — I mean, they just started filming! David recently chatted with EW about reading the script for the first time, and tearing up! “I started crying reading the first page,” he said in the interview. “It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it. That was nice and strangely emotional for me, and I’ll have to figure out how to use that [in the performance].”
Are you as obsessed as we are?
