Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will star in an ‘X-Files’ audio drama

While you’re waiting for new episodes of The X-Files to (maybe) arrive, you can catch up with Mulder and Scully in another format: audio drama.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will star in an audio drama for Audible. Produced by Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), it’s adapted from the X-Files: Cold Cases comics. The story takes place after the movie X-Files: I Want To Believe, filling in some of the backstory for the 2016 miniseries.

“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.”

The Cold Cases audio drama will also include other well-known X-Files cast members including Mitch Pileggi. You can listen starting July 18 at
