“We’re coming back to do really fresh, original material, not a victory lap — this is an opportunity to prove that the show has more life in it,” Chris said of the show’s revival.

He continued, “We’re living in a time where there’s a tremendous amount of distrust toward authority, the government, even the media. I’ve cherry-picked some of the things that are frightening to me and if even one of them comes true, it’ll be a very bad thing for America… It’s an interesting time to be shining lights into the darkness.”

The X-Files revival premieres on Sunday, January 24th at 10 P.M on Fox.
