Catch up on the entirety of the X-Files saga mythology without having to binge watch 200+ hours of tv with this handy timeline infographic.
The full X-Files Mythology Timeline up to the start of season 10 (the newest re-boot of the show). But it was, and hopefully will again be, a great show. So why not just watch through all the old episodes right now. That way by the time you finish you’ll have a whole brand new season of X-Files to watch. To get you started, read this.
The Mayans predicted the world would end on December 21, 2012 at the hands of alien colonists, who planned to invade Earth and wiper out humanity using Black Oil, an alien virus that infects humans and takes control of their bodies. The U.S. government formed a secret organization called the Syndicate, embodied by the Cigarette Smoking Man, to combat the impending invasion. The Syndicate decided to cooperate with the Colonists, while secretly working to create an alien/human hybrid race that would be immune to Black Oil. After the Syndicate was eradicated, by faceless alien rebels who opposed colonization, the colonists sent super-soldiers, alien replacements who looked human, to infiltrate the U.S government and prevent any attempts to survive colonization.
Not that you needed more reasons to watch the new X-Files season. But here are some anyway.
