Mulder And Scully Are Back For 'The X-Files' Revival. Here's A First Look.

The truth is out there. Or is it? Maybe.

The X-Files hasn't seen its iconic characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on screen since 2008's The X-Files: I Want To Believe, the second X-Files film released six years after the end of the series' initial run. That hasn't stopped the show's cult following from growing both in size and in its burning desire for more Mulder and Scully, though — which likely in part fueled the decision to bring the series back for a limited six-episode run.

Listen up, believers: the first shot of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in character as their FBI agent personas is officially out there. An image was tweeted out from the show's Twitter handle, featuring a still of the two seated in the back of a car. Mulder is in a casual gray shirt and green jacket, while Scully is more put together in a skirt and blazer. That's really it, but this is 2015, so the speculation on such tidbits will obviously be exponentially larger than the scant details that are actually in the photo.

A few sample speculations, for fun: where are they headed? Why is Mulder dressed so casually? Is this some kind of alternate universe where he's actually Hank from Californication? Is Scully holding something sinister in that clenched fist? Does that middle seat pull down to form a combination armrest/cupholder? What drinks would they put in them if so?

Clearly, the possibilities for just one still are endless. Just wait until a trailer hits for the event series, which is set to debut its first episode Jan. 24, 2016. For now, pick through the first image yourself:
