Fox is set to revive one of the best thrilling dramas in the history of television when THE X-FILES: I Want To Believe hits screens this January. The revival of the awesome sci-fi series will feature BOTH David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their iconic roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
On Thursday evening, Fox released the first glimpse at new footage for I Want To Believe, andddd I just set my DVR for Sunday, January 24, 2016…
Fox’s description of the upcoming X-Files re-imagining sounds, of course, like the project is going to be epic, despite the six episode brevity.
Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by 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. 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. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015.
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.
I mean, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back at it after a 12-year hiatus!?, how could I Want To Believe not be epic?I believe that this has all the makings of some great Sunday night television.
