That’s right, Philes, Let’s all rejoice over the fantastic news that we get six whole hours of new X-Files once again. Fox announced the premiere dates for their new Prime Time lineup this morning at Upfronts in NYC. For the first time since 2002, one of our old favorites is on the list.
Are you ready for this? Are you sure? I’ll wait while the appropriate level of thrilling excitement builds … our new favorite mini-series will premiere on Sunday, January 24, 2016! That may seem far away, but if I tell you that it starts filming this summer, will that help? Okay, but what about the fact that we get a two-hour premiere? Uh huh, I’m speaking you language now, aren’t I?
The next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The thrilling, six-episode event series, helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter and starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY, 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.
It’s really happening, Philes! Let’s all go toast to more “Mulder, it’s me.”
