(Los Angeles) — A good sequel or TV show reprise on the horizon means one thing and one thing only… schedule your marathon to binge watch the original STAT! Well, Mulder and Scully (aka David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson), the stars of the moody and cinematic 90s phenomenon The X-Files-“one of the most elaborate, long-winded, beleaguered, and beloved cult sci-fi series in TV history” (Wired)-are poised to return, and Cinefamily is prepared to ensure that you are ready. With the show’s six new episodes beginning Jan 24th on FOX, the time is nigh to survey the best of the beloved science fiction drama’s previous seasons.
Our host for the evening, podcaster and upcoming “The X-Files” guest star Kumail Nanjiani, will take us on a tour of the absolute best of the X-Files, for a special live episode of his podcast “The X-Files Files.” To top it all off, expect surprise X-Files cast & crew appearances, plus a sneak peek of the first new episode. And if you’re not on board yet, just know that Kumail says… “”This is going to be the greatest day of my life.”
THE X-FILES debuts with a special two-night event on FOX beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25(8:00–9:00 PM ET/PT). The all-new episodes will encompass a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. Featuring appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B.
