Duchovny and Anderson reprise X-Files roles for audiobook

The X-Files David Duchovny Gillian Anderson

In the build-up to Fox's six episode 2016 revival of The X-Files, I confessed that I had hardly watched any episodes of the show's initial nine season run (and had never seen either of the feature films). I considered catching up on The X-Files before that short tenth season made it to the airwaves... but I didn't. When it comes to The X-Files, I remain out of the loop.

While it's unclear if/when there will be another season of the TV show, a new chapter is being added to the canon in a different medium. Audible Studios has announced that they are producing an audiobook version of Joe Harris's graphic novel series The X-Files: Cold Cases.

The X-Files creator Chris Carter is serving as executive producer and creative director on the audio production, with Dirk Maggs adapting the comic book story for audio.

What makes this Cold Cases project really intriguing is the fact that the show's cast will be reprising their roles for it - David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will be delivering the performances for special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, as it should be, and they are joined in the vocal cast by Mitch Pileggi as Assistant Director Walter Skinner, William B. Davis as the Cigarette Smoking Man, and Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood as the Lone Gunmen.

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.

Audible Originals will be releasing The X-Files: Cold Cases on July 18th. The audio production can be pre-ordered on Amazon right here.

This gives me something else to catch up on when I finally start to examine The X-Files.
