Fox have finally revealed the planned premier date for the much anticipated ‘X-Files’ limited series, which reunites the iconic FBI agents Mulder and Scully.
The Network revealed that the six part series will begin on Sunday 24 January, but will continue on Monday evenings at 8PM until the series has run its course.
The X-Files will take over from Gotham, set to return in the spring.
David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi are all confirmed to be returning to the paranormal series as their FBI agent characters.
‘The X-Files’ creator Chris Carter previously said that it was “a perfect time” for the show’s revival.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” he said. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
Glen Morgan and James Wong, writers of classic episodes such as ‘Squeeze’ and ‘Little Green Men’, will join Carter and Darin Morgan to create the new season.
The X-Files originally aired for nine seasons between 1993 and 2002 on Fox, and also spawned two feature films.
