After twenty-five years, the truth is still out there. Following a successful if all too short revival season in 2016, the iconic sci-fi series is returning to the airwaves for its eleventh season in just over a month. That means it’s time for promos!

The last season ended – rather abruptly at that – on a cliffhanger. But that was nearly two years ago, so what if you’re a little fuzzy on the details? Well, not to worry, because the cast has you covered! In the latest promo for the upcoming season, fans are treated to a both new footage and a recap of the cliffhanger by stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, as well as series creator Chris Carter.

You can find the promo here:


After wrapping up last season’s cliffhanger, the new season will primarily focus on monster of the week episodes, including one penned by fan favorite writer Darin Morgan (which Chris Carter assures us will be “a crowd pleaser”). The season also features an episode that delves into the largely unexplored backstory of Skinner, which both Carter and Skinner actor Mitch Pileggi both teased earlier this year at New York Comic Con.
