X-Files trailer: Fox Mulder asks, What if it was all a lie?

Posted on

A new promo for Fox’s upcoming revival of The X-Files may be hinting at the show’s biggest conspiracy yet.

“What if our work, the X-Files, everything we’ve been led to believe in is a lie?” Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) asks. Well, Special Agent Mulder, the truth is out there.

The trailer, which aired Monday night during Gotham, also featured an ominous voiceover warning of the perils of a surveillance state; Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) introducing herself and her partner; and enough flashlights to make hardcore X-Files fans feel pangs of nostalgia.

Watch the new teaser above. The X-Files returns Jan. 24.
