We finally have an official return date for the return of “The X-Files.” The six episode limited run series will premiere on Sunday, January 24. The premiere will be a two night installment with the second episode airing on Monday night which will be it’s regular night during the run.

However, the biggest question is what kind of plot can we expect. Fans are wondering whether it would fit in with the mythology created within the original series, or would the revived series serve as a standalone single story much like the movies did. The studio said that fans could expect “a combination of episodes” featuring both new tales and callbacks to the original series.

Production is set to begin sometime next month, confirming rumors that shooting would commence during the summer. More updates will follow as information is announced.
