The new X-Files revival has been shooting for a little while now. After a pretty disappointing teaser photo from the set showing stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in character, we finally get some proper teaser photos.

Now we can see a little more character wise thanks to the folks at EW.

New to the X-Files universe are Annet Mahrendu and Joel McHale, pictured above. Mahrendu will play a woman that believes she gets abducted by aliens on a regular basis, while McHale is a conservative talk-show host that gets everyone’s favorite agents to do a little paranormal snooping for him.

We know about Duchovny and Anderson reprising their roles of  Agents Mulder and Scully respectively. It’s also been reported that Mitch Pileggi will return as Walter Skinner and William B. Davis will once again portray the Cigarette Smoking Man.

Rumored for appearances are Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick as well as fan favorite trio The Lone Gunmen.

The X-Files is set to premiere in late January 2016 on FOX.
