The first image of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully was released via the official “X-Files” Twitter account Wednesday.

In the photo (below), Scully is dressed in a crisp black pant suit, while Mulder is sporting a more casual look with a green army jacket and jeans.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles in the reboot of the 90’s series about two special agents investigating the paranormal.

Fox announced in March that the show would return as a limited series. “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” series creator Chris Carter said in a statement. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

During its initial nine-season run, “The X Files” became one of the most successful television dramas of all time, hitting a peak ratings high in 1997 when more than 27 million people tuned in to the Season 5 premiere. The show had earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award.
