The truth is almost here!

The X-Files returns to Fox as a six-episode event series in just over a month, and a new teaser trailer promises fans will not be disappointed when Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) grab their flashlights and reunite to investigate the paranormal.

Producers also confirm that the first and sixth episode of the series will be heavy on mythology, while the second through fifth episodes will be standalone monster-of-the-week showcases. "We are playing with this mythology in a whole new way," says creator and executive producer Chris Carter. "The government's secreting of evidence about extraterrestrials might come into play."

Check out the trailer below and catch the premiere of The X-Files on Sunday, Jan. 24 following the NFL's NFC Championship Game.
