Fox is giving us something old and something new to kick off the start of 2018.

The network has announced the premiere dates for "The X-Files" and "9-1-1." Both series will arrive on Wednesday, Jan. 3, with "The X-Files" providing the lead-in to the freshman procedural drama.

The return of the "X-Files" will bring the much-anticipated second season of the revival, which premiered in 2016. It marks the 11th of the series overall. To spread the excitement, the show's Twitter account teased the "re-opening" on Twitter Wednesday with a photo of stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

Meanwhile, Fox released a new preview for "9-1-1," giving viewers an idea of what to expect from the upcoming drama. The series centers on emergency responders and boasts a talented cast. Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, and Peter Krause star.

Man, 2018 is already off to a good start.
