Following the first taste for Fox’s big redux for The X-Files during Wayward Pines, the new clip aired during tonight’s finale. Although it’s similar to the earlier version, it does offer a better glimpse of Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully — and brief dialogue.
Fox is giving the six-part limited series a huge boost by airing the opening episode right after the National Football Conference Championship Game on Sunday night, January 24, 2016 with the second chapter airing the next night in its regular timeslot 8PM-9PM ET/PT January 25.
In addition to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, returning veterans of the original hit series include William B. Davis (The Smoking Man) and Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner). New agents joining Mulder and Scully are Miller and Einstein (Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose).
