Paranoid sci-fi series to return to U.S. airwaves in January of 2016

The new six-episode series of TV fan favorite "The X-Files" wowed viewers at the MIPCOM television trade fair this week. Off the air since 2002, the series, with its blend of science fiction and paranoia has long been a science fiction favorite - and if the reception at MIPCOM is any indication, special agents Mulder and Scully are more than welcome back.

The new 'X-Files' series has special agents Scully and Mulder reuniting for a story that is very contemporary, mixing government surveillance, corporate intrigue, and alien abductions for a tale of paranormal intrigue.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - One special surprise revealed is the series' producer Chris Carter, kept the series' original opening credits exactly as they were when the show first aired back in 1993.

"We thought about doing some changes to the original credits, but then it seemed like sacrilege," Carter said. "Those credits were on 202 episodes. They belong on these next six."



The new episodes could not have asked for a more receptive audience at the screening. The most hardened cynics broke into applause and war whoops at the Cannes' Grand Auditorium. Special moments of audience approval came when special agents Mulder, played by David Duchovny and Scully, played by Gillian Anderson, first appeared on the screen.
   
Carter explained the rationale behind the limited episode series, in which the story arc is completed within six episodes in lieu of several dozen. It appears that "The X-Files" is taking a cue from the British Broadcasting Corporation, who launches TV series with only six episodes.

"We used to tell a story over a long saga, 22 to 25 episodes. Now the arc is much sharper, from one to six. So I think we pack a lot more in to these six episodes."


The new series has special agents Scully and Mulder reuniting for a story that is very contemporary, mixing government surveillance, corporate intrigue, and alien abductions for a tale of paranormal intrigue.

The downside? Fans of the series in the United States will have to wait until January 2016 when the new "X-Files" airs on Fox Network.
