David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Are Back in “The X-Files”
The 54-year-old actor and 46-year-old actress portrayed Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on the original Fox series, and will reprise the roles for a six-episode revival. The network announced the premiere date in a press release Monday.
Part one of the two-night premiere will air Sunday, Jan. 24 at 10 p.m. ET following the NFC championship game. Part two will follow Monday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET, and subsequent episodes will broadcast Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
The X-Files previously had a nine-season run from 1993 to 2002. The sci-fi drama follows Mulder and Scully as they investigate unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena, and series creator Chris Carter will return to develop the revival.
