The long-awaited official trailer for FOX’s X-Files revival is here and apparently so is the end of the world.
When the new trailer opens, we hear an unknown man giving us a pretty concerning rundown of events surrounding the end of the world, with accompanying visuals of destruction. “It’ll probably start on a Friday. What will seem like an attack on America by terrorists, or Russia. Driven by a well-oiled, well-farmed and multinational group of elites using alien technology that government’s been hiding for 70 years,” the self-confessed true believer warns, before asking for Mulder’s help in saving the the world.
There are also glimpses of an alien birth, guest star Joel McHale as Tad O’Malley, some military and government officials looking like they’re up to some quite shady things and more.
Take a look at the trailer below:
In addition to McHale, fans can expect to see appearances from Robbie Amell (The Flash), Lauren Ambrose (Dig, Six Feet Under), Annabeth Gish (The Bridge), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).
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).
