What are Mulder and Scully? Not even David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson really know.
The X-Files co-stars attempt to decode their characters' relationship in a new promo for the series' upcoming 11th season.
"We're co-workers, friendly co-workers," Anderson insists, while Duchovny notes, “In the second movie we were married, we appeared to be married. And then when the last season began, we appeared to be estranged."
"Everything's up in the air in the world of The X-Files, so you don't really know," the actor reasons.
One thing's for sure, however, the new season will show a "closer" Mulder and Scully, as Anderson suggests. A scene in the promo shows Mulder tempting his partner with something "like a date."
“I’d say we’re kind of back to where we were originally, but without the sexual tension,” Anderson shares. “Because we’ve already had sex."
The X-Files returns Jan. 3, 2018, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
