Lone GunmenThe Lone Gunmen are saddling up again for Fox's "X-Files" revival!

The trio of geeky conspiracy theorists — played by (from right to left in above photo) Tom Braidwood, Bruce Harwood, and Dean Haglund — will be in all six episodes of the event series. Haglund spilled the news in Australia, then confirmed it on Twitter. The Lone Gunmen were fan favorites in the original series, and starred in a brief spinoff show in 2001. It's unclear how the characters — Melvin, John, and Richard — will come back in the revival, since they died in an episode in the original series' final season. (Then again, the Cigarette Man also died in the original show and is coming back.)

But their return means that the whole "X-Files" gang is really back together again. In addition to David Duchovny's Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson's Dana Scully, we'll see the aforementioned Cigarette Man (William B. Davis) and FBI Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). There will also be appearances by Joel McHale, Lauren Ambrose, and Robbie Amell.

Fox has yet to set a date for the revival's broadcast, but sneak peek footage will air during Thursday night's "Wayward Pines" episode.

The truth is out there!
