It’s been a roller coaster few days since filming began on the X-Files revival. Day one was mostly a pair of empty chairs, both literally and metaphorically.

But day two. Oh, day two. The cast and crew ventured out into the open to film on location in Vancouver. And now Fox’s X-Files Twitter account has released our first official look at David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back in character as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Check them out—for the first time in seven years.

It’s an image calculated to tell us almost nothing, aside from the fact that Mulder and Scully are physically in the same place—but it’s sure to spark questions anyway. Where are they going? Why is Mulder dressed so casually? Who is Scully going to take out with a single glance this time?

In any case, it’s confirmed that this show will not let us live our lives in peace for as long as the revival is in production. Good.
