TORONTO — The truth is out there — and so are the stars of The X-Files.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back in Vancouver to reprise their roles as FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in a reboot of the science fiction series that ran from 1993 to 2002.

The six-episode series is scheduled to premiere in January.

Duchovny, 54, and Anderson, 46, made nine seasons of the show and the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe in B.C.

On Tuesday, the stars were snapped on set by local paparazzi Randy Chiang and Rik Fedyck. Local blog YVRShoots also captured several images in downtown Vancouver, which is standing in for Washington, D.C.

Also returning for the untitled The X-Files limited series (which is filming as “3FP”) are Annabeth Gish as Monica Reyes, Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner and Toronto actor William B. Davis as Smoking Man.
