There’s an exclusive audio clip from the upcoming The X-Files: Cold Cases audiobook at Parade — head on over for a listen!
If you’re a fan of The X-Files and are reeling from the series’ recent Netflix absence and the lingering question of “will they or won’t they”…make a new season, we have good news! X-Philes can get their fix via the audio version of The X-Files: Cold Cases, out July 18 (you can pre-order now). Set in series creator Chris Carter‘s world of The X-Files and based on graphic novels by Joe Harris, the new installment is set after the events of the series’ second film, The X-Files: I Want to Believe. The audiobook brings in a truly fantastic twist: The characters are each voiced by the original actors, so you can get your Mulder and Scully fix via David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson narrating their original characters. Their chemistry is as electric as ever and the story is out of this world.
If you’re on the edge of your seat and can’t wait until the summer release, check out this Parade exclusive Audible Original excerpt, performed by Duchovny (with the support of Anderson and Mitch Pileggi, returning as Deputy Director Skinner).
A brand new X-Files project! Hopefully, this will keep us fans going until the (hopeful-fingers-crossed) announcement of season 11. Article is posted below, with the trailer posted under the cut.
The truth is still out there, even if it means diving into the past to find it.
Audible Studios will release “The X-Files: Cold Cases,” an Audible Original production that will star the voice talents of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and a full cast, the studio announced Monday. Besides Agents Scully and Mulder, fans will also get to revisit old friends Walter Skinner (Mitch PIleggi), the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), and the Lone Gunmen Melvin Frohike, Richard “Ringo” Langly and John Fitzgerald Byers (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood).
“The X-Files: Cold Cases” is set between the events of the theatrical release “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” and 2016 limited series revival. In the audiobook, an FBI headquarters database breach allows an unknown party to access The X-Files’ cold cases. This means that a lot of old friends — and foes — are now coming out of the woodwork, necessitating that Agents Mulder and Scully come out of anonymity to handle them. The adventure will center on a growing conspiracy that involves their secret department, the U.S. government and forces not of this world.
The audio format will further highlight the chemistry between Mulder and Scully against the backdrop of a unique soundscape of “liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft,” according to the press release. Consider this an X-Files for audiophiles.
Series creator Chris Carter provided creative direction for the production, which is based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris and adapted for the audio format by Dirk Maggs.
“The X-Files: Cold Cases” will be released exclusively on Audible on July 18. Pre-order is available at www.audible.com/xfiles.
