It’s hard to say which way this is going to go. With both leads going from strength-to-strength – Anderson in NBC’s Hannibal and Duchovny as a fast-living novelist in Californication – we can only remind ourselves of the (best-forgotten) movie spinoff, The X-Files: I Want To Believe.

Another cash-in reboot of something that should be left alone? Maybe. But the newly-surfaced trailer sheds light on a plotline involving a NSA-like government pre-empting an attack that sees the show’s two faded characters come together – once again.

Topical? Indeed. But will it be a glorious second coming?

The X-Files will air on Channel 5 early February.
