The X-Files revival is coming, and Fox has released the first minute of the premiere

Fox is giving fans anxiously awaiting the X-Files revival a taste of what’s to come: The first minute of the premiere episode of the upcoming series is now available on the website doyoustillbelieve.com.

The short video is basically a recap of the previous series, which ran from 1993 to 2002. Therefore, viewers shouldn’t be too tormented by hints of what will unfold in later episodes — unlike with the series’ earlier trailers. Curiosity and excitement will, of course, be peaked for diehards who can’t wait to see Mulder and Scully reunited at long last. Mostly, though, the video serves as a tantalizing reminder of the series’ revival as well as a basic primer for newbies.

Like the original, the revival will focus on Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), a duo that met while working together as FBI agents investigating unsolved cases involving the paranormal. Fox gets to be the voice of the first minute of the revival, telling viewers, “My name is Fox Mulder. Since my childhood, I’ve been obsessed by a controversial global phenomenon.”

Mulder continues by giving a background on the mysterious disappearance of his sister when he was a child, and how he subsequently dedicated his life to investigating “the alien phenomenon.” He explains that his work led him to the FBI, where he ended up teaming up with Scully. Although the FBI ultimately closed the X-Files, Mulder’s personal interest didn’t go away, and we can expect to see more of it when the revival arrives on Fox.

Unfortunately Fox won’t let us embed the video here, but the X-Files official Twitter account shared the news of the new video’s release, along with a link to it below:

The X-Files will return as a six-episode miniseries, with a two-night premiere airing on Sunday, January 24 and Monday, January 25.
