Cigarette Smoking Man resurrected in new X-Files poster

Fox has released a new poster (below) for the upcoming X-Files revival, showing everyone’s favourite big bad (and Mulder’s biological father): William B. Davis’ iconic Cigarette Smoking Man.

The character of the Cigarette Smoking Man was last seen in The X-Files series finale ‘The Truth’ in 2002, seemingly killed by a rocket. However, as the poster shows, William B. Davis will be reprising his role in the six-part event series, starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as the iconic duo Mulder and Scully.

The X-Files will return to FOX on Sunday, 24th January 2016.
