If you’re a fan of the X-Files TV series and a customer of Audible and Alexa, you’ll be able to stream a new audible podcast series to your Alexa devices this summer (scheduled release date is July 18, 2017).
The series that had a generation looking to the sky gets a breathtaking audio reprise in “X-Files: Cold Cases” — an original, full cast dramatization, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to voice FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
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.
Here, fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully’s irreplaceable chemistry as only the series’ leads could deliver, Duchovny’s deadpan and cynical aloofness finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson’s unwavering intelligence and rigidity. Appearances from series regulars and the actors who made them fan favorites round out this must-listen arc: the gruff, no-BS righteousness of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi); the distinctive click-puff of the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis); and the stooge-like hijinks of three beloved conspiracy theorists called the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).
The series is available for pre-order: The X-Files: Cold Cases
