The truth isn't out there. It's on Netflix.

"X-Files" is officially coming back, and it's bringing David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson along with it. The series, which ran for nine seasons, spawned two movies and had a massive cult following, will return for six special episodes on Fox. As far as what to expect, EW.com reports comments from series creator Chris Carter suggest the episodes will be more focused on the standalone "Monster-of-the-Week" format rather than playing into the series' overall "Mythology" storylines.

It has been 13 years since the show went off the air. After all that time, even Scully and Mulder would probably need a refresher. In honor, of "X-Files" coming back, here are the 18 "Mythology" and standalone "Monster" episodes you need to catch up on:
