New Teaser for The X-Files Revival Series: 'Are You Ready for This?'
The newest teaser for The X-Files miniseries finally features the first dialogue between Mulder and Scully, and it's very meta:



In the short clip, Mulder asks Scully if she's "ready for this," and Scully says, "I don't know if we have a choice." This is not only a fairly apt summary of their entire relationship in the original series, but also seems to be speaking directly to the audience. And our answer is: yes, we are ready, and no, we don't have a choice in the matter.

In addition to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively, several other beloved characters from the original series will make an appearance on the revival. The Smoking Man, AD Skinner, John Doggett, and Monica Reyes are all expected to return, as well as The Lone Gunmen, who will be recurring characters in spite of the fact that they died shortly before the series finale.

There will also be several notable guest stars playing new characters, including Robbie Amell (The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Joel McHale (Community), and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley star and adorable X-Files superfan).

The X-Files revival will consist of six hourlong episodes, and will debut on Fox with a two-night premiere on Sunday, January 24, and Monday, January 25.
