Los Angeles - David Duchovny will be stripping off in the upcoming reboot of The X-Files

The 55-year-old actor reprises his role as Fox Mulder in the new series, which returns on 24 January.

And David revealed in a new interview that he will be delighting fans by shedding his clothes in a new episode of the series. 

He said: "There's a little bit ... There's a scene where I'm somewhat disrobed, but it's played for humour."

David was speaking on Australian radio show on 2DayFM Breakfast, and added the scene is a reference to a scene in the original show where Mulder shed his clothes. 

He continued: "It's a call back to a very famous moment in the show where I was almost nude for the X-Files."

The new series will see six episodes hit television screens, and while David wanted to shoot more alongside co-star Gillian Anderson, he admits it was tough to try and get everyone back together. 

He said: "Eight or ten would've been nice, but it was hard to get us all in the same room for six, we kind of ran out of time."

The cult sci-fi series - which contained the catchphrase "the truth is out there" - originally ran from 1993 to 2002 with Gillian and David taking on the roles again for 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe, which also starred Amanda Peet and Billy Connolly.
