Cape Town – The truth is still out there and on Monday morning 25 January at 08:15 South African viewers and the rest of Africa will be able to watch the first episode of the new The X-Files on FOX (DStv 125 / StarSat 131) at exactly the same time as viewers in the United States.
The new 6-part The X-Files mini-series is back with David Duchovny as Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully once again investigating paranormal phenomena, Mitch Pileggi as FBI assistant director Walter Skinner who is their boss – even William B. Davis who reprises his role as the enigmatic and mysterious "Cigarette Smoking Man".
Chris Carter the original creator, is back as the executive producer with The X-Files that was filmed in Vancouver, Canada.
"They police us, they spy on us; tell us that makes us safer. We've never been in more danger," says an older yet still as hotheaded Mulder in the first episode.
The X-Files as an "event series" will be shown on FOX in South Africa and 60 other countries around the world as an express title.
The new series will roll out in South Africa as part of the ongoing effort by Fox International Channels - now called Fox Networks Group - to broadcast episodes of buzz worthy new series very close to the American airdate.
The first episode of The X-Files will be simulcast on 25 January at 08:15 and then shown later Monday evening at 20:30 on FOX.
The second episode of The X-Files will be simulcast on the next day, Tuesday 26 January at 06:15, and then broadcast at 20:30 on FOX.
After that, the rest of the remaining 4 episodes of the 6-episode The X-Files series will all be simulcast every Tuesday, one per week, at 06:15, and then on Tuesday nights at 20:30.
The new The X-Files will kick off, continuing the ongoing mythology and conspiracy theories the drama series was known for, that the American government is covering up the existence of aliens.
