Mulder, Scully and the Cigarette-Smoking Man get animated in a beautiful new promo for The X-Files.
The series will bring FBI Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) back to the small screen to do what they do best: explore the unknown.
“We must ask ourselves, are we truly alone, or are we being lied to?” Mulder asks in the 30-second teaser. Scully is still hesitant to believe, but we soon find out that Mulder has good reason for concern.
The reason comes from William B. Davis’s Cigarette-Smoking Man in one simple statement: “They’ve reopened the X-Files.”
Watch the artistic new look at the upcoming revival below:
In addition to the return David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and William B. Davis as FBI Agents Fox Mulder, Dana Scully and the Smoking Man, original star Mitch Pileggi will also appear in the limited event as Walter Skinner. It was previously announced that Joel McHale, Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose will guest star.
Series production vets Glen Morgan and James Wong are also confirmed to return writers-producers.
The X-Files returns to FOX with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC Championship game and continuing with its normal time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
