The Lone Gunmen are coming back to The X-Files.

Dean Haglund, who portrayed Langley in The X-Files and in the spin-off series The Lone Gunmen, told an audience in Sydney, Australia tonight that he would be filming new scenes on The X-Files revamp series currently shooting in Vancouver.

Revealing the news to an excited crowd in Sydney’s Camelot Lounge, Haglund announced that he will be joined by former co-stars Bruce Harwood and Tom Braidwood.

Until recently Haglund had been telling fans at conventions that he was unaware of any plans for The Lone Gunmen to return to The X-Files. The news was delivered to the audience fresh, with Haglund only finding out today that his character would be returning. “Well, today they contacted us. We’re shooting July 28. The gunmen are in the final 6”, Haglund explained.

The X-Files returns to TV on 24 January 2016 on the US Fox network.
