The waves made by The X-Files upon its brief return early last year showed that fans were still eager to see the antics of Mulder and Scully, and now comes word that you’ll be able to keep up with further new adventures for this fan favourite duo thanks to Audible and their upcoming X-Files audio series.
While the guys from Audible have a massively impressive track record with their audio shows and releases over the years, what will get fans particular excited here is that so many of The X-Files’ key players are on board for this new project. Adapted by Dirk Maggs and with creative direction from creator Chris Carter, The X-Files: Cold Cases will see the likes of David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi all returning to action.
The full press release on this exciting new project reads as below:
The series that had a generation looking to the skies gets a breathtaking audio revival in an original, full cast dramatization, featuring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris – with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter – and adapted specifically for the audio format by multi-award-winning Dirk Maggs (best-known for his adaptations of Douglas Adams’ Hitchiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere for the BBC), The X-Files: Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the X-Files saga.
Set after the events of The X-Files: I Want To Believe – 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 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 tackle a growing conspiracy involving their former department, the US government and forces not of this world.
Here, fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully’s irreplicable chemistry as only the series’ leads could deliver; Duchovny’s deadpan and cynical aloofness finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson’s unwavering intelligence and rigidity. Appearances from series regulars and the actors who made them fan-favorites round out this must-listen arc: the gruff, no-BS righteousness of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi); the distinctive click-puff of ‘The Cigarette Smoking Man’ (William B. Davis); and the stooge-like hijinks of three beloved conspiracy theorists called the ‘Lone Gunmen’ (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).
The truth is out there. You just have to listen.
