The X-Files Reboot: Confirmation & Everything We Know

The X-Files reboot, directed by Ryan Coogler, will have a diverse cast. The X-Files, which premiered in 1993, follows FBI agents Scully and Mulder as they investigate the most bizarre cases. 

The X-Files, which combined fascinating paranormal adventures with a complex government conspiracy plot, became a 1990s TV staple and still has a loyal following.
