New 'X-Files' Posters Shed Some Light on the Revival Cast

A series of new artwork from Fox's "X-Files" revival puts David Duchovny's Mulder, Gillian Anderson's Scully, Mitch Pileggi's Skinner and William B. Davis' Cigarette Smoking Man front and center. Pileggi, who is returning to reprise his role on the series, released the posters on his Twitter account.

In the new series, Mulder and Scully will investigate a possible alien abductee (Annet Mahendru of “The Americans”) at the behest of a conservative talk-show host played by Joel McHale. According to an earlier interview with returning writer Darin Morgan, the show will pick up with Mulder and Scully in a far different place than where they left off in the 2008 movie “The X-Files: I Want to Believe.”

Premiering Jan. 24, the six-episode Fox revival also stars newcomer Joel McHale. Series creator Chris Carter is joined behind the scenes by writers/producers Glen Morgan and James Wong.
