Jimmy Kimmel just got Mulder and Scully back together ahead of their comeback

They always say you should never go back.

But that's exactly what David Duchovy, Gillian Anderson and writer Chris Carter are doing, as the much-loved sci-fi series The X Files returns to our screens later this month.

However, self-confessed superfan and US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel decided to get Agents Mulder and Scully to reunite a little earlier than scheduled, with this superb sketch taking a look at just how well the duo would cope, having been out of action since the nineties. Suffice to say, there's been a few technical developments since then.

There's also the added bonus of a final gag you probably didn't see coming. Take a look above.

The new six-episode miniseries premieres on Fox in the US on Sunday 24 January; we're sure it'll be out of this world.
