Description: Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. FOX.com
Comments: This is billed as a six-episode “event” series that continues on from the original, but I have heard multiple comments that more could follow and/or that it is setting up X-Files: The Next Generation. The first episode premieres after the NFL playoff game wraps up on Sunday, January 24th. Then on the 25th it takes up its regular timeslot on Mondays at 8 PM EST.
