This week, Fox unveiled the first look at the upcoming six-part event series.
The show’s social media accounts announced — via Twitter — that they’ll be counting down the 201 days until the 2016 revival by revisiting an episode a day of the original series.
And, as a bonus, the trailer for the re-watch features the first new footage of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson).
Prepare to get excited Scully fans – Gillian Anderson has revealed a familiar looking hairstyle on her Twitter account.
The actress teased her social media followers by posting a photo of her new red hair colour, associated with the character Dana Scully.
Covering her face with her phone, Anderson captioned the photo with an alien emoji and a lipstick kiss.
It’s only a mere three months since The X-Files revival was officially confirmed, and now the cast and crew have gathered in Vancouver to begin shooting the new series.
Anderson recently said that it will be “really weird” to return to the cult series, but that she’s looking forward to it.
Getting back to the character I’m fine with. It’ll be fun, it’ll be all of us back together again but older and wiser. I know we will make the most of it and it’ll be really weird. It’ll probably be more fun and more exhausting at the same time. I’m psyched and I’m still in denial.”
Creator Chris Carter will be back at the helm for the six new episodes, joined by returning stars David Duchovny (as Mulder) and Gillian Anderson who has already reverted from her preferred blonde to Scully’s famous red hair colour…
