Entertainment Weekly just shared a clandestine peek at the production of the upcoming “The X-Files” limited-series reboot and it’s got some great info (hey — we knew the truth was out there).

There’s a photo gallery with pictures of stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson; he looks a little tired and worse for the wear, while she seems to have had what they call in the industry, “some work done” (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

But the best news is that the reboot seems to be continuing the original series’ penchant for casting interesting guest stars. In some of the photos, we see “Community’s” Joel McHale and — even better — Annet Mahendru, Nina from “The Americans.”

There’s even a peek at the title page of the first new script, called “My Struggle,” written by series creator Chris Carter (an occasional visitor to the Austin Film Festival). The show will return sometime in 2016 to Fox.

Are you a fan of “The X-Files?” Are you excited for the reboot or do you think it’s better left alone?

Me? I want to believe.
