Watch: New ‘X-Files’ footage courtesy of TV show marathon promo

The X-Files are really, real, and really, really returning. Get hype.


Fox is bringing The X-Files back to TV, and the network will bring people back to the series by running a one episode per day marathon. The marathon starts today, and now Fox has released a trailer for the marathon, and as a bonus it contains the first new X-Files footage, featuring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully..

Here’s the trailer. The new footage is right at the end. There’s not a lot of it, but there’s enough to get fans excited.

As that trailer reveals, the full series marathon begins today and will run one episode of The X-Files every day for the 201 days. They’ll show the 1993 pilot tonight, and then run right through the entire series, leading up to the Jan. 24, 2016 premiere of the new event series. Most of this teaser is built from footage from the prior nine seasons of the show, but those last shots, beginning at about :29, are new footage.
