X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny have been reunited on the red carpet at the premiere of a new series of the hit TV show.

The pair, who found fame around the world as FBI special agents Mulder and Scully in the sci-fi drama, have reprised their roles for six new episodes more than 13 years after the original run ended. The pair reminisced about the past at the launch of the new season at the California Science Centre in Los Angeles.

Anderson was recently filming in Belfast for the third and possibly final season of The Fall, which is expected to air later this year.

Anderson said: "There continues to be enthusiasm for it. There has been a huge amount of enthusiasm since we announced it."

The new episodes of The X-Files will air on Channel 5 in early February.
