The X-Files is back again (sort of) with new spin-off

Recommended Posts



From Digital Spy

Look to the skies, people, The X-Files is returning once again, though not in the way you would expect.

It seems you may have to listen to the skies on this occasion, as David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will lend their voices as Mulder and Scully for a new audio spin-off on Audible.

The X-Files: Cold Cases will be set before the events of the recent revival series, providing more backstory on the events we saw.

The new series will also be set after 2008 movie I Want To Believe, revealing more as to why the pair were pulled out of reclusion.


The synopsis reads: "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."

Cold Cases will have "creative direction" from X-Files creator Chris Carter, with the adaptation written by Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy).


Also appearing are characters Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), 'The Cigarette Smoking Man' (William B Davis) and the 'Lone Gunmen' (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).

You can pre-order the series now.

Meanwhile, it emerged earlier this year that The X-Files could be set for an 11th season on TV, though Fox is yet to commit to new episodes.

This is excellent news. Thanks for posting it, Earthnut.

I've been thinking for ages whether to get an Audible account, and this might well tip the balance in favour of that. Providing, of course, it's available in the UK, as not all Audible content can be accessed from the UK site.
