David Lynch’s Twin Peaks isn’t the only TV show of yesteryear poised to make a return to the small screen, and while our wait for Lynch’s fabled third season will continue into 2017, a certain Fox Mulder and Dana Scully will soon be vying for our attention once again. In 2016, Fox is reviving long-dormant crime series The X-Files for a brand new miniseries.
Kicking things off with a two-hour premiere episode on January 24, those in attendance at last month’s New York Comic-Con were able to get an early peek at the show’s long-awaited return. Mind you, there’s been no shortage of clips, teases and TV spots pumped out to stir excitement ahead of the new run arrives, and today’s latest promo arrives in the form of two brooding posters.
On the first, we have the aforementioned FBI agents, who specialized in all things paranormal, front and center, though the second is a more eerie one-sheet, casting the pair as two shadows in the night with the evocative tagline ‘trust no one.’ Marking the first mainline entry into The X-Files in almost 14 years, there’s certainly a lot riding on the show’s return, though series creator Chris Carter has every faith in the writing team as the prep for a brand new adventure.
We’re going to tell X-Files the way that we’ve always told them; we will of course set them in the time and place that they exist. We’re telling contemporary stories about contemporary situations, true to Mulder and Scully’s characters and their relationship and the passage of time.
Save the date: January 24, 2016 will welcome back Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for another bout of otherworldly investigations when The X-Files miniseries looms onto Fox.
