Dana Scully is here!

Gillian Anderson is on her way to transforming back into the beloved FBI agent for the return of The X-Files, posting to her Twitter on Friday a simple selfie of her hair dyed Scully red.

Production on the six-episode event series begins this summer and we're already counting down the days until its premiere.

In addition to Anderson and David Duchovny, who reprises his role as Scully's partner Fox Mulder, The X-Files reboot will welcome back favorites Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Smoking Man). Among the new faces joining the series is Joel McHale, who will play a conservative news anchor.

The X-Files returns to Fox on Jan. 24, 2016.
