For those who’ve adopted the “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude, Fox has just released the first photo from the set of The X-Files new limited series. The behind-the-scenes photo proves that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are in fact back as FBI Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder. Filming is, obviously, underway on the six episode event series with The X-Files creator Chris Chris Carter back in charge.

When the return of The X-Files was first announced, Carter had this to say about why it’s taken 13 years to delve back into this world on TV. “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
The cast of the event series also is set to include William B. Davis back as the Smoking Man, Mitch Pileggi returning as Walter Skinner, and Joel McHale joining the world of The X-Files as Tad O’Malley, an internet news anchor.
