The truth is on HBO?

Comedian and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani revealed on Twitter that he has joined the revival of The X-Files. His role is currently unclear, but from the images in the tweets, it looks like he may be an animal control officer.

The X-Files‘ revival features the return of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Along with series creator Chris Carter, collaborators on the original run of the show who are returning include Mitch Pileggi as Assistant Director Skinner, William B. Davis as the Cigarette Smoking Man, and writers James Wong and Glen Morgan.

The X-Files returns to FOX on January 24, 2016, a Sunday, and will then settle into its timeslot on Mondays at 8, for a total of six episodes.
