Here’s Channel 5 official UK trailer for the much-anticipated X-Files revival which will air next month.

The six-part show sees David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Other returning characters include Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis, playing Walter Skinner and The Smoking Man respectively.

Originally shown in 1993 and airing for nine seasons, the show’s spooky and alien-themes conspiracy theory plots saw it become a global hit and helped spawn two big screen adventures plus a spin-off series.

Now, thirteen years after the original series ended, series creator Chris Carter is penning six new episodes which once again see the agents investigating paranormal phenomena.

The revival had been widely expected to be shown in the UK by Sky but Channel 5 has instead landed the drama.
