‘The X-Files’ teaser trailer shows there may be good reason for fans to believe (VIDEO).

Yes, after months of teasing us with pictures, plot hints etc, makers Fox have finally given fans the chance to see Mulder and Scully in action once again after this teaser found its way online.The first teaser trailer for the six-episode event series hit the Internet Thursday — highlighted by the tantalizing sight of David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully back investigating alien conspiracies. Admittedly, you don’t get to see a whole lot of them in action since the clip is a mere 16 seconds long – offering just the briefest glimpse of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

Appropriately enough given the landmark sci-fi horror series’ shadowy aesthetic and enigmatic themes, there are few visual clues to be gleaned from the trailer. Or, at the very least, what seriously looks—based on this new teaser—like a turbine surrounded by a rising cloud of dust, followed by a shot of some very alert military personnel cautiously approaching the camera, along with a guy in a dark suit and hat. But it whips up a creepy atmosphere nonetheless – thanks to the presence of the military, some kind of bizarre injection procedure and Mulder’s I Want To Believe poster being cast to the ground in that time. There is, however, what appears a crashed flying saucer and a horrific-looking needle filled with black oil, imagery familiar to fans of the show that ran from 1993 to 2002. Entertainment Weekly recently revealed the first episode of the new mini-series would be entitled Mr Struggle, and would be directed by series creator Chris Carter.

In addition to the maybe-UFO, an arm is mysteriously injected with what I hope is not black oil. (If you stop the video at the exact-right second, you can clearly see the arm.) Of course, both Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) make appearances at the end of this trailer, as the iconic theme music plays in the background. Meanwhile cast newcomers will include Joel McHale – of Community fame – who will be playing Tad O’Malley described as ‘the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder.’ During the “The X-Files'” original nine-year run, it proved one of the most successful sci-fi programs in TV history, topping 20 million viewers a week at its height. But after the poorly received final season and two forgettable big-screen movies, many disgruntled fans were left feeling as if too much of the phenomenon was left unexplained.
