Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of the thrilling series The X-Files is here. Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) have been approached by Tad O'malley (guest-star Joel McHale), a popular conspiracy theorist web-TV show host, who believes he has uncovered a significant government conspiracy. With the assistance of FBI Asst. Dir. Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), O'Malley seeks to enlist the help of former X-Files agents Mulder and Scully, who have since severed ties with the FBI. Through O'Malley, they are introduced to Sveta (guest-star Annett Mahendru), a possible alien abductee who shares shocking information with them that will challenge everything that Mulder has ever believed about the existence of aliens and the government's role in covering them up.
