Watch: 'The X-Files' Revival Releases Stylish Animated Trailer Teasing Characters to Come


Even with numerous trailers, teasers, panels and even “The X-Files” revival screening its first episode twice — overseas and in the U.S. — plenty of mysteries still remain for what’s to come in the six-episode event series. Now, with a new teaser that aired during Monday night’s “Gotham,” even more questions have arisen.

In a very cool (both stylish and in its color palette) new teaser, Fox shows a few fan favorites of yesteryear in addition to animated versions of Mulder and Scully. A monster many remember as the flukeworm makes a cameo, as does the voice and image of the Cigarette Smoking Man. Are these inclusions foreshadowing characters to come, or merely reminding us of past highlights? 

We may not find out until next year, but that’s no reason not to start guessing. “The X-Files” returns January 24 to Fox.
