Audible Studios is bringing back David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and the rest of the original X-Files cast for a new production – The X-Files: Cold Cases. Based on a series of graphic novels by Joe Harris, the audio recordings will be adapted by Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) with creative direction by series creator Chris Carter.
Set after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe and providing 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.
Fox is still working on a follow up to the 2016 mini-series.
Aubible Originals releases The X-Files: Cold Cases on July 18.
