The Lone Gunmen Return to “The X-Files”!!.

Dean Haglund, Bruce Harwood and Tom Braidwood have all signed on to reprise their roles as Langly, Byers and Frohike – known collectively as – in the six episode revival, which is currently in production in Vancouver, Canada for a January premiere on Fox.Now, with “The X-Files” reopening for business this coming January, the trio – played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood – are set to return for an undisclosed arc. The trio appeared in more than 30 episode of The X-Files between 1994 and 2002, and they even toplined their own short-lived spin-off titled in 2001 (though it was cancelled after only 13 episodes).

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return as Mulder and Scully, with Robbie Amell (“The Flash”) and Lauren Ambrose (Psycho Beach Party) signed on as Agent Miller and Agent Einstein, respectively. It is not immediately clear how many episodes they will appear in, but the fact that they are reprising their roles open up some interesting questions, especially as the three character were killed off in the ninth season.

This is a big deal for a couple of reasons: For one, the notorious Lone Gunmen were thought to have perished in a season nine episode, “Jump the Shark”, which tied up some loose ends from their short-lived titular FOX series. It’s worth noting, however, that series creator Chris Carter has previously stated in a number of interviews that “no one really dies on The X-Files” and he faced a similar dilemma in bringing back Canadian actor William B.

What’s more, this news hints that, perhaps, the series may pay credence to the recent Chris Carter-produced comic series by IDW, in which the quirky trio resurface having faked their deaths. The revival has also added a few familiar faces for a handful of roles, among them are Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), and The X-Files Files host himself Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).

Nanjiani posted the news last week on Twitter, too, with this cool photo: The new season, the first in the series in 13 years, will premiere January 26th, 2016 on FOX. New additions to the cast include Joel McHale as Tad O’Malley, “the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder,” and Annet Mahendru (The Americans) as Sveta, “who believes she’s regularly abducted by aliens.”
