The X-Files isn’t just continuing its adventures on Fox, to the delight of fans. It’s also continuing to tell spooky tales in audio form. The first audiobook, The X-Files: Cold Cases, brought our heroes Dana Scully and Fox Mulder out of retirement post-2008 film The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The latest audio adventure, The X-Files: Stolen Lives, available now on Audible, delivers yet another chapter in Scully and Mulder’s hunt for the strange.

Of course, the strange is familiar territory. In this exclusive clip below — featuring David Duchovny himself reading as Mulder — it seems like old times when Mulder is met by the last person with whom he wants to speak: Cigarette-Smoking Man. And the formerly dead Spender pretty much sums up the background of The X-Files with this one sentence: “Sometimes the most devious conspiracies are hidden in plain sight.”

In The X-Files: Stolen Lives, a sinister new threat has surfaced in the wake of the fallen Syndicate, and the group's resurrected members all submit to the will of a mysterious leader with an even more mysterious agenda. As the saga's players grapple with whom to trust, it's up to FBI agents Mulder and Scully to uncover the conspiracy while the preservation of humankind hangs in the balance.

The X-Files: Stolen Lives is based on the graphic novels by Joe Harris and contains the familiar voices of Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood.

According to Audible's announcement, we can also expect “Demonic possession. Flesh-eating swarms. Mind-altering hallucinogenic trips.”

In other words, we can anticipate a seriously good time. Especially for those of us who want our ears filled with the sweet voice of David Duchovny. Wait, did we type that out loud?
