The six all-new episodes will begin airing on January 24th.
In the preview, star David Duchovny hopes the new episodes will “satisfy the mythology of [the series].” He will reprise his iconic role of Fox Mulder opposite Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully.
“It was really putting the band back together,” series creator Chris Carter says in the video. “The people you are going to see doing these episodes are the people who actually helped to created The X-Files series.”
Indeed, much of the original writing and production staff has returned, including writers Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong.
