We haven’t seen (or heard) the last of the iconic duo David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as Mulder and Scully on The X-Files series. Check out our exclusive clip from The X-Files: Cold Cases!

X-Files: Cold Cases is based on the graphic novels by Joe Harris and takes place after the feature film The X-Files: I Want to Believe that premiered in 2008. Although it takes place after the film, it does take place before the 2016 series revival.

Here is the official teaser for ‘The X-Files: Cold Cases’ from Audible

This Audible Original is a full-cast dramatization that brings back the voices of our favorite Agents, Mulder and Scully. Amazon says the audiobook,

“provides additional backstory to the incidents that pulled Mulder and Scully out of reclusion prior to 2016’s miniseries revival, a database breach at FBI headquarters allows an unknown group to access and capitalize on those investigations left unsolved – dubbed cold cases – by the secret department once known as The X-Files. As friends and foes of the agency long thought gone begin to inexplicably reappear, former agents Mulder and Scully come out of anonymity to face a growing conspiracy that involves not only their former department but the US government and forces not of this world.”

Hardcore fans will also remember the likes of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), and the Lone Gunmen Melvin Frohike, Richard “Ringo” Langly and John Fitzgerald Byers (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood) who will also be making voice appearances in The X-Files: Cold Cases.

We were also given an exclusive quote from Mitch Pileggi, known to most of us as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner!

“I think what fans are going to like about this project are the voices of Mulder, Scully, The Cigarette Smoking Man and myself. They’re going to be hearing characters that they thought were gone and have now been brought back. Fans are really going to enjoy having all these characters back in new storylines, and talking more about the invasion, the faceless aliens, and the clones. There’s a lot of really good material here that the fans are going to enjoy relishing. They will be able to use their own imagination.”

While fans may have wanted some news about continuing The X-Files revival from last year, it’s good to know that stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are not shying away from playing Mulder and Scully again, albeit through voice acting.

Listening to them in audiobook form is almost like a throwback to the times when the original series aired on television. Fans will definitely appreciate The X-Files: Cold Cases.

The X-Files: Cold Cases will be released exclusively on Audible on July 18. You can pre-order on Audible, here.
