The first, full X-Files trailer is full of conspiracies, aliens, and whistling themes
The X-Files mini-series is getting ever closer, and to make absolutely certain you know that, Fox has released the first, full-length trailer for the mini-series.
The clip shows exactly what you may hope it would from an X-Files clip. You have Mulder, Scully, alien conspiracies, and a guy smoking a cigarette. Not to mention a hirsute Skinner. It also gives a taste of the plot, but only a taste.
If you need a bit of a refresher on what the hell is going on, Fox recommends you host your own little DIY marathon. You still have time to make it through the 202 episodes and two movies before the show returns.
One change that fans will either love or hate is that Mulder and Scully are apparently no longer a couple, as they were in the 2008 film, X-Files: I Want to Believe. That may give them time to rekindle the romance over the six episodes, or it may be a reset to the old days when the characters occasionally flirted, but were generally too busy being kidnapped and destroying monsters.
The first teaser for the return of the show came back in July, but this is the first true trailer. Check it out below, and look for the X-Files miniseries on January 24. The second episode will follow on January 25, and the show will then conclude with the sixth episode on February 22. The sequel will then premiere in 2031.
