"The X-Files" is all set to return after almost 14 years since the last episode aired on Fox. The familiar characters of FBI Special Agents Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) will be reprising their roles in the "X-Files" revival miniseries.

Earlier, Fox had released a 21-minute behind-the-scenes footage that included videos and interviews with the show's cast and crew in December. The footage possibly consisted of hints and clues of story that would be in the upcoming episode.

However, Fox recently released a three-minute video that has scenes from the upcoming episodes. The video might have revealed some significant details regarding the forthcoming series.

In one of the scenes as seen in this video, Mulder has a disagreement with FBI's assistant director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) as he says, "You owe me some answers, Skinner."

Not wanting any troubles, Skinner tries to calm Mulder. In another scene, Mulder is seen saying, "For all the time I was being led by my nose through a dark alley to a dead end, exactly as they planned."

Afterwards Mulder is talking with Scully about their son, William, whom they abandoned in the last episode of the previous season. Scully says to Mulder, "As parents, we made a difficult sacrifice to keep him safe."

In a later scene, Scully is seen breaking down in a hospital that is indeed a very odd experience for all "X-Files" fans as Scully is one character in the series who always keeps her emotions under control. Undoubtedly, viewers are curious to know what causes Scully to grieve in such a manner.

As Scully is crying uncontrollably in the video, surely there must have been something devastating. Most likely, someone close to Scully has died as the scene is of a hospital. However, it is not clear in the video who is the dead person.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "X-Files" creator Chris Carter talked about possible spoilers and said, "There's actually a new position called set security. "That's the person to make sure everyone has a badge and watches out for us."

"As far as I'm concerned, this episode, everyone's seen it now because everyone will be online talking about it," he added.

The first episode titled "My Struggle" of "X-Files" miniseries is all set to air on 24 January on Fox.
