I think we can all agree that books are amazing. Books can take you to far off lands, dystopian worlds, romances, and history. But who has time to read anymore, seriously? Jobs, kids, school, blah blah. No time for world and time travel. Except a new surprise from The X-Files could change that.

There’s a teaser trailer floating around showing a new story featuring our favorite duo. Its an Audible exclusive and ripped from the pages of the graphic novel, this story is set after the movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The coolest part about all of this? It is a full audio dramatization featuring Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully, David Duchovny as Fox Mulder, Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner, and William B. Davis as The Cigarette Smoking Man.  And don’t forget The Lone Gunmen: Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood.

In the style of an old-timey radio show, the story named The X-Files: Cold Cases will be not only narrated but include sound effects to match the action in the story. Check out the teaser trailer.

Rolling Stone also acquired a snippet of the audio and you can hear that here. I don’t know about you but I’m excited. Especially with the show pussyfooting around about a possible return, we need something to keep us sated until minds can be made up. Let’s all cross our fingers for a true epic comeback.
