The X-Files has added two big names to play agents in Fox’s upcoming reboot.

Actors Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) will appear in the new incarnation of the sci-fi hit as agents Miller and Einstein, respectively.

But before you think Fox is pulling a Doggett and Reyes all over again, there’s also this: They’re only signed to appear in one episode as guest stars.

The X-Files returns Sunday, Jan. 24 for six episodes and includes the original core cast, including David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

Also: Can’t wait to hear Mulder’s reaction to meeting “Agent Einstein.”
