The X-Files is returning to TV with a six-episode miniseries next year, and as you might imagine for such a cultishly adored show the anticipation is reaching pretty extreme levels. If you’re one of those who can’t imagine waiting another month for the further adventures of Mulder & Scully, you might want to give Fox‘s The X-Files Re-Opened a watch.
The X-Files Re-Opened is a behind-the-scenes featurette evidently titled by people who either didn’t realize or didn’t care that “reopened” is an actual word. Series auteur Chris Carter is interviewed, as are Mulder and Scully themselves, so this is definitely worth a look for fans of the show.
Another cool thing about The X-Files Re-Opened is that it’s not some three or four-minute trifle, instead clocking in at a robust 21 minutes. If you’ve got that much time to spare, you can see it for yourself below. As for The X-Files, it comes back to Fox on January 24th.
