Many people hate reboots, others love them. I’ve always been one of the latter, especially if that reboot is for the X-Files. According to X-Files creator Chris Carter, he will be returning to create a six-episode limited run of the series, more than a decade after the original show finished. While you wait, now would be a perfect time to binge-watch the nine years worth of episodes that are already out there.
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.
