“The truth is still out there,” according to the much-anticipated new trailer of “The X-Files” revival, due to premiere January 24 on Fox. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return to the franchise as believer Fox Mulder and skeptic Dana Scully, but they’re not the only faces from the past to appear in this week’s official promo. Watch the new trailer below.
Mitch Pileggi (Assistant Director Walter Skinner) gets plenty of face time in the spoilery promo, and there’s even a jaw-dropping moment at the end featuring the voice of William B. Davis (the Cigarette-Smoking Man) rasping, “We have a small problem.”
Over the course of its nine seasons, “The X-Files” won 16 Emmys including Best Actress for Anderson, Best Writing for Darin Morgan (who returns as a writer/producer for the new limited series), Best Guest Actor for Peter Boyle and Best Main Title Design for its iconic opening sequence. Scroll down to see which 11 episodes won Emmy Awards in our photo gallery.
