VIDEO: See The First Minute Of The New X-Files


Published at 3:17pm 12th January 2016.

It looks like a new case for Mulder and Scully.

The first minute of the next series of the X-Files has been released.

The 60 second clip called 'do you still believe' shows photos of the agents being burnt as their department is shut down by the FBI.

It sounds like a recap as a series of images from previous cases and Agent Mulder's childhood flash across the screen.

A voiceover says: "My name is Fox Mulder. "Since my childhood I've been obsessed by a controversial global phenomenon. Since my sister disappeared when I was 12 years old, in what I believe was an alien abduction."

He continues: "In 1993, the FBI sought to impugn my work, by bringing in a scientist and medical doctor to debunk it, which only deepened my obsession for the better part of a decade. During which time that agent, Dana Scully, had her own faith tested."

The show returns to our TV screens in February, after a 13 year break.

10 things you might not know about the X-Files...

  1. The famous theme song was reportedly created by accident after composer Mark Snow leaned his elbow on the keyboard while the 'echo' function was on.
  2. Gillian Anderson, who plays Scully, is about 10 inches shorter than David Duchovny, who plays Mulder so she spent a lot of time standing on boxes.
  3. Dana Scully is actually named after sportscaster Vin Scully and Mulder was taken from Chris Carter- his mother's maiden name.
  4. Mulder and Scully's badges did not say Federal Bureau of Investigation because it was illegal to make a fake FBI badge.
  5. Gillian Anderson's little sister was used to play a young Dana Scully in a flashback.
  6. Comedians Jack Black and Luke Wilson had bit-parts in some of the early seasons.
  7. David Duchovny is actually a New York Knicks fan in real life, just like his character Mulder.
  8. Scully was only abducted in season two because actress Gillian Anderson was pregnant in real life.
  9. Both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny directed some episodes.
  10. The show was originally meant to end after season five to make way for a series of movies.
