Fox Releases NEW X Files Promo Art Featuring the Usual Suspects Plus Bonus Cigarette Smoking Man
FOX is pulling out all the stops on their promotional lead-in to the upcoming X Files miniseries, airing in January. This time, the network handed the promo baton to series star Mitch Pileggi, who tweeted three different X-Files promo images (including one that features the Skinman, himself). Shine your flashlight below to investigate the images (they’re pretty).
The X-Files returns Sunday, Jan. 24 following the NFC Championship Game, and continuing on Monday, Jan. 25
Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back in (at this point) archetypal roles Mulder and Scully in the miniseries, which will be bookended by mythology-centric episodes, with lots of monsters in between.
In the first episode back, My Struggle, we find Mulder and Scully estranged, but they quickly reunite to solve a case involving an alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature a number of new faces, including Joel McHale, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Annabeth Gish (returning as Monica Reyes), Annet Mahendru, Rhys Darby, Kumail Nanjiani, and William B. Davis as the sinister Cancer man. Chris Carter leads a team of writers from the early seasons of the original run: Glen Morgan, James Wong, and Darin Morgan.
Stay tuned to Hollywood Redux and The K Files as we cruise on into the heart of the sixth season on The X Files 201 Days Rewatch, hosted by FOX.
