Rabid fans of the paranormal TV series "The X-Files" can apply their "out-there" theories to a new trailer, whose spooky images accompany voice-overs by FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).

On Wednesday, the Fox network uploaded the teaser to YouTube, where the video has been viewed more than half a million times.

While a silhouette of a man, perhaps Mulder's, appears beside what could be a warehouse railing, Mulder is heard saying, "I believe that what we're looking for is in the X-Files. I'm more certain than ever that the truth is in there." That second line plays off one of the Emmy-winning series' major themes, "The truth is out there" — a phrase that appeared at the end of the show's opening credits during its 201-episode run from 1993 to 2002.

In another scene from the trailer, Scully's voice is heard as the tandem advances with flashlights through a shadowy room. "I've heard the truth, Mulder," she says. "Now what I want are the answers."

The new, six-episode season of "The X-Files" premieres Jan. 26 on Fox.
