Today we’ve got a slew of ‘The X-Files‘ news to share with you! With Fox bringing back the series for a 6-episode run we first have the joy of a 201 episode marathon that is being run to celebrate which started yesterday! It is one episode per day and the trailer for it not only has the announcement information but also includes the first clip from the upcoming series which features David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles. Yes, folks, it is the first actual footage of the return of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully! Not only that, but we have a few not shots from the upcoming series to share with you as well.
As this was announced yesterday I am sad to inform you that you missed out on the pilot. That being said, it all continues on today with another 200 episodes! You can check out the video announcement below with the new footage starting at the 29 second mark.
So granted there really isn’t much but considering the release date is next January and we’re only getting 6 episodes they can’t exactly reveal that much of the show. It isn’t only a tease that we have for you today though as it looks as if we have one new piece of casting information for you as Rhys Darby (‘Yes Man’,’Flight of the Conchords’) is also joining the cast.

I’ve really only seen Darby do comedy before so I’m wondering if he is going to be going a little darker for this role or bringing a bit of lightheartedness to one of the episodes. He will only be in one of the six episodes according to the original report so his is a role to not get too attached to.
To wrap things up we’ve also got two new preview images for the upcoming season to share with you!
While there isn’t much in the way of details here it does look like our favorite agents will be getting to see some action again.
Are you looking forward to the return of ‘The X-Files’? Share your thoughts on the trailer, casting, and 2 new images below!
‘The X-Files’ will return to Fox on Sunday January 24th, 2016
