During their upfront presentation this morning, the FOX network has announced the news that sci-fi fans have been waiting for – the premiere date for their upcoming event series revival of “The X-Files”.
Mulder and Scully will return to our screens starting with a one-hour premiere on Sunday January 24th at 10pm after the NFC Championship Game. The remaining five episodes will then screen weekly in the “Gotham” timeslot of Mondays at 8pm starting from January 25th.
It looks likely that the second season of “Gotham” will be done as two separate uninterrupted chunks of around eleven episodes each – one in the Fall, one from the week after “The X-Files” ends on February 29th. That hasn’t been confirmed as yet.
