The X-Files Is Becoming an Audiobook
The adventures of Mulder and Scully might never end. The X-Files is getting yet another revival—this one, in audio form. The groundbreaking television series is set to become an exclusive audiobook from Audible.com, dramatizing a series of graphic novels by writer Joe Harris.
The X-Files: Cold Cases is, essentially, a reboot of the cult classic series in podcast form. The full cast is doing the narration—not just David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, but favorites like Mitch Pileggi (Skinner) and William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man) too—and there will be plenty of paranormal sounds to spook your ears.
According to Audible, the story takes place just after the events portrayed in The X-Files: I Want to Believe (the largely unpopular 2008 movie) and before the plot of the 2016 miniseries. The audiobook begins with a data breach that allows some unknown group to access unsolved X-Files cases from the FBI. “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,” according to the press release.
The X-Files is a trendy story to revisit these days. In addition to the 2016 miniseries reboot, it was recently turned into a pair of young adult novels as well as a children’s book. The X-Files: Cold Cases will be available for $25 from Audible on July 18, 2017.
