Fox Unveils ‘X-Files’ Reboot Trailer—And It’s Perfect.

The cult-favorite characters are back to take on the supernatural in a six-episode reboot of The X-Files set to premiere in 2016, and Fox released a new teaser Thursday on Twitter. After nine seasons and two feature films, the truth that Mulder and Scully searched for is still, still out there— and with a 90s nostalgia boom currently running rampant through Hollywood, they’re now back to keep searching.

The return of Fox’s X-Files, which gives us six more episodes of spooky, conspiracy-driven bliss starting next Jan. 24, is much like the show itself: hinged on a tenuous faith in the unknown.Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will reprise their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, assigned to investigate unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena, in the revival of the sci-fi drama. The first glimpse of what we’ll see next year doesn’t disappoint, complete with strange tools, dead bodies and, of course, the show’s classic eerie theme song. This 15-second teaser reveals literally nothing, but given that an Instagram shot of Gillian Anderson back in Dana’s red hair got the Internet aflurry, it’s enough to get plenty of hearts pounding anyway. isn’t back for long; it’s returning to Fox in January as a six-episode limited series, not unlike the 24 revival that happened last year.

A 15-second clip of upcoming scenes shows a group of military men with guns, two bleeding bodies being dragged from a warehouse, an ominous looking surgical procedure and what appears to be a break-in at The X-Files office as someone treads on Mulder’s discarded “I want to believe” poster among the debris. Numerology aside, six episodes in 2016 is as much a gift from the beyond as a testament to the ’90s nostalgia that is ripping everything from Full House to Point Break back from the TV and movie retirement home, and it’s a gift we’ll gladly take. Last night, Fox finally gave us the above appetite-whetting first look at what was to come: a teaser that is only 15 seconds long, but tells us more in that fraction of time than all the babbling bloggers’ hypothesizing possibly could.
