A trio of familiar faces are returning for The X-Files' upcoming revival.

Fan favorites The Lone Gunmen, played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood, will reprise their roles in the upcoming six-episode limited series, Haglund announced on Twitter Wednesday.

The three characters, who starred in their own short-lived 2001 spinoff series, were all killed off in a season nine episode of The X-Files so it's unclear exactly how they will return.

They join returning stars David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis. New faces include Joel McHaleThe AmericansAnnet MahendruFlight of the ConchordsRhys DarbySilicon Valley's Kumail Nanjiani, The Flash's Robbie Amell and Six Feet Under's Lauren Ambrose.

The X-Files returns Jan. 24 on Fox.
