The X-Files Full Trailer Released

The X-Files Full Trailer

Fox dropped the first full trailer for the upcoming "X-Files" event series. The first teaser trailer for the six-episode return of the '90s sci-fi horror staple was divvied out in two parts in a promotional stunt during the network's season premieres of "Gotham and "Minority Report" Monday night.

Few plot points could be gleaned from the one-minute and 15 seconds of footage, but David Duchovny's former FBI agent Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson's Dr. Dana Scully are clearly back at work investigating alien conspiracies after a long layoff. One great takeaway from the trailer, though, the return of the enigmatic villain CGB Spender (William B. Davis), glimpsed only via a close-up of his cigarette. It's quite the recovery considering the character was last seen dying in an explosion in the previous series finale.

The new episodes also feature a number of big-name guest stars, including "Community's" Joel McHale as a right-wing radio jock. Annabeth Gish, Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose also joined the cast.
