Queue the spooky theme song, folks, because THE TRUTH IS STILL OUT THERE.
Just over two decades ago arguably the greatest science fiction television show of all time landed on Fox. Now the long awaited, highly anticipated reboot is a mere 2 weeks, 2 days and 6 hours from now (EST) - but who’s counting?
In case you need a refresher, or missed The X-Files altogether, here’s a quick recap:
Special Agent Fox Mulder meets Special Agent Dana Scully, debunk, debunk, debunk, autopsy, autopsy, monster, monster, cigarette smoking man, alien conspiracy, BELIEVE, sexual tension … they get a movie … autopsy, monster, monster, monster … they get another movie … Mulder gets replaced by fatter older evil robot from Terminator 2, Scully dips, Terminator 2 and new Latina Scully take over the X-Files, TRUTH, Terminator 2 and Latina Scully aid Mulder and Scully in one final adventure, future is unknown … they get another movie.
Yep, that about does it. Sorta. Are you more of a visual learner? Lucky you! All nine seasons are streaming on Netflix. And according to BingeClock, cutting out all of the commercials and the opening and closing credits will only take about eight days of your life – which, btw, gains back about half the time you spent on Making a Murderer. Or, if you prefer catching up via some serious series worm holing, check out the entire X-Files chronology here.
Fast-forward to present day and the X-Files have been reopened as a six-episode miniseries.
There are missiles, alien weaponry, government conspiracies, and more sexual tension than ever before (fingers crossed).
WE’RE SO X-CITED to see our favorite FBI duo reunited again, but mostly because we’re hoping for some solid new “Fuck off, Mulder” vibes from Agt. Scully.
