Good news, conspiracy theorist sci-fi fans: Mulder and Scully are coming back.
Although the network has not set an air date, Fox announced today that X-Files creator Chris Carter will come back to helm a new six-episode limited run of the series; the miniseries begins filming this summer.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” Carter told Variety . “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
It’s excellent news indeed. But what should you do until we get these smoking new episodes? Binge-watch the original show, obviously! With nine years’ worth of episodes ranging from creepy to batshit crazy, chances are you don’t remember every detail as well as you should. Luckily, we have a binge-watching guide ready for you.
Now fire up that Netflix account (or dust off that VHS box set) and start catching up on all the unexplained phenomena and sexual tension now. You are not alone.
