Yesterday during a press conference call, FOX announced that production on its The X-Files six-episode event series will begin in June, and the first episode will premiere on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 10 p.m., following the NFL's NFC Championship game. The second episode will debut on Monday the 25th at 10 p.m., and the remaining episodes will also air on Mondays as the lead-in for the new DC series Lucifer.

FOX co-CEO and co-chairman Dana Walden on The X-Files:

We're very excited about this. It's going to be a huge reward for fans of this legendary show. It's taken us a very long time to get these three back together...I think you will see a combination of episodes that if you were a loyal fan and became familiar with the process of mixing standalone and deeper mythology episodes. Everyone will be happy with what he's got planned.

Walden also explained the airing schedule for the event series:

We thought a lot about how to event-ize bringing this show back from a scheduling perspective. We've got a lot going on midseason on our schedule and it felt like the best way to capitalize on all the opportunities with something like 'The X-Files,' which is so timely and anticipated that fans have been literally clamoring for a decade.

In a little over eight months, The X-Files will be back on the small screen, so you know what that means: it's time to start binge watching the shit out of the previous seasons! What would you like to see in the new episodes?

Hopefully its as awesome as it has the potential to be, everyone watches it and FOX decides to FINALLY release the HD version of the old series. They suck for holding onto it this long!

The scary thing is that it's produced by Fox... I wish they would've gone with a Netflix Original or sign with another network like AMC. Fox is just so bad...

I doubt they could since Fox probably owns the rights to broadcast the X-Files

Cant wait to see what kind of episodes were going to get

Scully: Well... gee, Mulder, there's also this report of a shipment of drugs and illegal weapons coming into New Jersey tonight.
Mulder: I hardly think the FBI is concerned with matters like that

Glad to see the team back together again. Hearing the iconic theme song again on the small screen should be exciting enough.
