On Sunday, January 24th (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/7:00-8:00 p.m. PT) The X-Files will be re-opened for a six-part miniseries. Helping to build some additional anticipation and excitement, FOX has released a 21-minute preview/behind-the-scenes that details the shows history (which ran for 9 seasons beginning in 1993) and teases about what viewers can expect to see in the future.
