X-philes, this is your first peek at the long-awaited return of Mulder and Scully.

David Duchovny, 54, and Gillian Anderson, 46, were spotted together, looking happy to be reprising their famous roles on the set of the upcoming X-Files revival.

Anderson is sporting red hair and a classic Dana Scully outfit, though one from the later years of the show, when her character ditched frumpy pantsuits for more stylish attire. Duchovny, however, is noticeably not dressed for official FBI work, which could indicate that his character, Fox Mulder, may not have rejoined the bureau in these new episodes (that will screen on Fox next year).

Does Gillian Anderson Believe in Aliens?

Also spotted on set was Joel McHale, who will be guest-starring in at least one of the six new episodes.

Since arriving on the set, Anderson and Duchovny have both Tweeted photos that offer glimpses behind the scenes.

And series creator Chris Carter posted his first-ever Instagram photo to reveal that the revival would be delivering the sci-fi goodness that won so many fans in the first place.
