Fans hoping for a little more Mulder and Scully to go along with the recent TV return are in luck. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny lead a laundry list of X-Files cast members who are lending their voices to a brand new audio book.

The book is called X-Files: Cold Cases, and it’s based on graphic novels by Joe Harris and Chris Carter. Taking place after the last movie but before the new TV show, Cold Cases will also feature the voices of Mitch Pileggi as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner; William B. Davis as the Cigarette Smoking Man; Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood as the Lone Gunmen; and others.

So what’s it about? Here’s what the official press release has to say:

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.

The book comes to Audible on July 18 but is up for preorder now at this link. Here’s a brief teaser.
