I’m unreasonably excited about this. The Los Angeles Times recaps the trailer:
The new “X-Files” trailer featuring the first real taste of footage for the returning series reminds us all that before there was “Mr. Robot,” “Person of Interest” and all those other cute conspiracy theory series, there was “X-Files.” No corner of the tin-foil-hat-wearing, conspiracy-theory-pontificating Internet was left unscanned for series plot details. And bless the bulbous gray heads of the gangly aliens from our past, the new trailer has it all: secret government experiments, crazy injections, alien tech, spooky security cameras and even the current hot-button conspiracy theory item, drones. The trailer also includes a sort of Indiana Jones-esque flashback, reminding us all that the first “X-Files” was among the first series to truly believe.
