True believers rejoice, because Fox released the first trailer for the long awaited "X-Files" reboot.

And Earth is once again facing the threat of annihilation.

That voice belongs to Joel McHale. A quick peek at the series’ IMDB page tells us he’s playing true believer Tad O’Malley for all six episodes of the series.

He’ll be joined by fellow funnymen Kumail Nanjiani and Rhys Darby for an episode.

But fans of the original series can expect to see plenty of familiar faces, including FBI assistant director Walter Skinner and the mysterious Smoking Man.

Series creator Chris Carter is excited to revive the classic TV show. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Details on the reboot have been scarce, but it’s a safe bet Mulder and Scully will once again square off against the shadowy Syndicate to try and save the world from extraterrestrial invaders.

You can catch the return of the sci-fi classic Jan. 24th on Fox. (Video via Fox / "The X-Files")
