With the return of The X-Files less than two weeks away, FOX have released the first minute of the first episode of the news series.

Serving as more of an intro, it basically strolls down the X-Files memory lane presumably for the newbies and to remind the oldies of what went before.

Whichever camp you fall into, we’re sure this new series will be one to watch.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return as Mulder and Scully, respectively, with the iconic Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis) once again playing a major role. 

Joel McHale stars as Tad O’Malley, a conservative news anchor who becomes an unlikely ally for Fox Mulder.

The presumed dead Lone Gunmen – played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood – are set to return. Robbie Amell (“The Flash”) and Lauren Ambrose (Psycho Beach Party) signed on as Agent Miller and Agent Einstein, respectively.

The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), and Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”).

Mitch Pileggi returns as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner in the new short-stack order of 6-episodes.

Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.

“The X-Files” revival airs on FOX January 24th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
