David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are going to reprise their roles as Mulder and Scully in the new X-Files revival.

The truth is not only out there, but it is glorious: after years in the alien and supernatural wilderness, The X-Files is returning to Fox for a six-episode limited series, and David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are set to star.

Duchovny and Anderson are reprising their roles of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dany Scully, respectively, alongside X-Files creator Chris Carter, who has returned to helm the procedural revival.

In a statement, Carter said, “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

The X-Files is of course the legendary series that became the Fox network’s first major cultural phenomenon when it ran for nine seasons between 1993 and 2002. During that time, Mulder and Scully starred as the believer and skeptic forced to explore the darkest realms of paranormal activity in an era where genre fans had few other network television avenues to quench their thirst for mystery, obsession, government conspiracy, and aliens. While Duchovny left the series before its end, he starred with Anderson in both the 1998 film The X-Files and The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008).

While it had been known that there would be an X-Files revival going into production this year, much like 24: Live Another Day revived Fox’s 2000’s flagship last summer, we had no confirmation if it would be a complete continuation of the curious cases around Mulder and Scully. However, Den of Geek did recently speak with Gillian Anderson this month.

There is no air date yet scheduled for The X-Files return.
