The cast of “The X-Files” is set to reunite, albeit in an unexpected way – an audio book based on the TV series for Audible.
A new video issued by the audio book company confirms that actors David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Willliam B. Davis, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood will provide voices for the audio book titled “The X-Files: Cold Cases”.
The story is based on the graphic novel by Joe Harris with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter. Set after the events of “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” but prior to the 2016 revival, the book provides additional backstory to the incidents that pulled Mulder and Scully out of reclusion.
In the book 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.
“The X-Files: Cold Cases” audio book will be released on July 18th.
