Good news for X-Files traditionalists and David Duchovny's hope to keep his youthful FBI headshot: the new run of The X-Files uses the original series opening credits from 1993. As reported by THR (via), series creator Chris Carter "has kept the series' original opening credits exactly as they were when the show first aired."
"We thought about doing some changes to the original credits but then it seemed like like sacrilege," Carter told the trade. "Those credits were on 202 episodes. They belong on these next six."
Nostalgic fidelity for a classic intro? Or a hint that, at long last, we'll get the story of that wavy-faced screaming guy we've always wondered about? I mean, I assume he's probably just going through a dimension shift or portal of some nature, but concrete answers would be nice, right?
