NEWARK, N.J. -- October 6, 2017

Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.com, announced the release of an
exclusive original audio production, The X-Files: Stolen Lives, starring
Golden Globe Award-winner David Duchovny as Fox Mulder and Golden Globe and
Emmy Award-winner Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully. Joining Duchovny and
Anderson in this follow-up to The X-Files: Cold Cases are series regulars
Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), William B. Davis (Cigarette-Smoking Man), and
Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood (the Lone Gunmen). The
recording is based on the fan-favorite graphic novels by Joe Harris, which
were created with direction from series creator Chris Carter. Adapted for
audio by aural auteur Dirk Maggs, this action-packed sequel is now available
for download at audible.com/stolenlives.

Stolen Lives brings listeners along on FBI agents Mulder and Scully's
paranormal investigations, while continuing the epic storyline begun in Cold
Cases. Of Cold Cases,  Parade Magazine raved, “the story is out of this
world,” adding that Duchovny and Anderson’s “chemistry is as electric as
ever.”

As a new and more powerful threat emerges in Stolen Lives, those believed to
be enemies become unlikely allies and trusted friends turn into terrifying
foes. Mulder and Scully become unknowing participants in a deadly game of
deception and retribution, the stakes of which amount to the preservation of
humankind. Featuring an otherworldly soundscape of demonic chants,
flesh-eating swarms, and hissing creatures, listeners will experience another
breathtaking adventure alongside this classic duo.

“X-Files: Stolen Lives doesn’t just pick up from where Cold Cases left off,”
said producer Dirk Maggs (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy). “It ramps up the
tension and intrigue as Mulder and Scully realize that the return of their
oldest adversaries is more than just happenstance. This sequence of immersive
multicast audio adventures takes Joe Harris’s stories to a whole new level.”

“Believers will not want to miss out on what Mulder and Scully uncover next,”
said Audible EVP and Publisher Beth Anderson. “Stolen Lives will entertain and
engross listeners with its twisted plot and captivating sound design.”

The X-Files series originally premiered in September 1993, rising from a
breakout sci-fi favorite to one of the most successful television dramas of
all time. The show earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody
Award. Twentieth-Century Fox’s reboot of the X-Files TV series has brought
more critical acclaim; Season 11 is currently in production, slated for 2018.
IDW Publishing publishes more than 20 years’ worth of The X-Files graphic
novels, and continues to release new volumes of paranormal mystery.

                      Praise for THE X-FILES: COLD CASES

“The Audible series brings in a truly fantastic twist: The characters are each
   voiced by the original actors, so you can get your Mulder and Scully fix
 via David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson narrating their original characters.
Their chemistry is as electric as ever and the story is out of this world.” –
                               Parade Magazine

“Fans will be happy to hear that they're together! Telling The X-Files stories
   in a new format will still have the same feel fans remember. Plus, just
imagine Mulder and Scully talking directly into your ears ... that's probably
                 something you can get on board with.” – SyFy

“Fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully's irreplicable chemistry as
only the series' leads could deliver, Duchovny's deadpan and cynical aloofness
  finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson's unwavering intelligence and
                         rigidity.” – Broadway World

  “Between the depth of the intertwining stories, the great acting, and the
  sheer nostalgia factor I’d say Cold Cases is four hours well spent.” – Pop
                                Culture Beast

 “We got to hear some of the story from “Cold Cases” and they sounded great,
almost like listening to Mulder and Scully talk on walkie-talkies.” – Bleeding
                                     Cool

“The content is bursting with both conspiracy and moments of horror, just like
   the show, but what makes listening to this book an absolute blast is the
                             cast.” – Horror Fuel
