Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are returning as Mulder and Scully – this time for a new audio story which will be released later this year.
Audible Studios has announced the duo are starring in The X-Files: Cold Cases.
The production is based on Joe Harris’s graphic novels, which are set after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe and provide more details about what transpired between the film and the TV show’s revival last year.
The show’s creator Chris Carter will serve as executive producer and creative director.
The audiobook gets its name from the unsolved X-Files “cold cases” that have been accessed by an unknown group during an FBI database breach. Mulder and Scully are forced to come out of hiding and face a growing conspiracy involving the US government and otherworldly forces as allies and enemies thought gone begin to reappear.
Other original cast members will also return: Mitch Pileggi as Assistant Director Walter Skinner, William B. Davis as the nemesis known as Cigarette Smoking Man, and Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood as conspiracy trio the Lone Gunmen.
The audiobook will be released on July 18.
