We still want to believe!

It's been 22 years since we first met Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and now our favorite alien-obsessed agents are returning to our TV screens in the new X-Files revival on Fox.

ET caught up with creator Chris Carter to bring you the exclusive scoop on everything you need to know before tuning in.

If you were hoping that Scully and Mulder were still going to be romantically linked in these new episodes, then you might want to look away.

"When we last saw them, they were actually living under the same roof together, which was a big deal for them," Carter recalled. "But I can tell you all is not well when we come back. They are no longer living together and, even though they are still very close, they are living separate lives and that's the way we begin."

But, don't start crying just yet -- we've got good news for you, X-Files fanatics! If this six-episode limited series does well, Carter confessed that there is a strong chance we could get additional Mulder and Scully adventures!

"Everyone wants to know if there are going to be more episodes past this, but we really have to see how we're going to do in the ratings," the showrunner explained. "If there are good ratings for the show and if there's a good critical response and if the fans are happy, I'm sure we'll do more."

In fact, Carter has already penned a third X-Files movie! "I never even showed it to David and Gillian. It was really just for me to keep the characters alive in my head," Carter revealed. "If that third movie were ever to become a reality, it would have to be a really big-screen event."

The X-Files premieres Sunday, Jan. 24 following the NFC Championship Game on Fox.
