As card-carrying X-philes, we’re counting the days until season 11 of The X-Files drops, which is hard as we don’t have an actual date yet. But hey, we do have a brand new trailer!

Dropped at the New York Comic-Con over the weekend, this trailer comfirms what an absolute [insert chosen expletive here] the Cigarette Smoking Man truly is, while the importance of Mulder and Scully’s son, William, is underlined.

Set to feature 10 episodes, including eight “monster of the week” outings, The X-Files: Season 11 is due in early 2018.
