Recently on the official X-Files Twitter account, the date 7-7-15 appeared and nothing else. This riled up the X-Files fanbase wondering what the mysterious date could mean.
It turns out that from that date until the premiere of the X-Files revival is exactly 201 days and also the exact amount of episodes that were produced during the nine seasons of the hit series.
The network wants fans of the series to watch an episode a day leading up to the premiere in 2016. Currently, you can stream the series via Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix, with the entire series available on DVD.
To help celebrate and promote the rewatch, FOX has released a promo clip with some old footage from the series, but if you look closely around the 32-second mark, you will see new footage of Mulder and Scully; if you blink, you may miss it!
