‘The X-Files’ Will Be Reopened Again

The X-Files

“The X-Files” will be returning to TV in the 2017-2018 season, Fox confirmed on Twitter.

No details have been released, but the new season will follow the format used last year, but with 10 episodes. The tenth season, which had a limited 6-episode run in 2016, debuted with 16 million viewers as reported by Screenrant. Viewership declined over subsequent weeks, but it still finished with more than 7 million watching the finale.

The original series debuted in the fall of 1993 and became one of the most successful shows in the history of the Fox network. It was nominated for and won a number of Emmys and Golden Globes, including multiple nominations and awards for its two stars, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. “The X-Files” ran for 9 seasons, airing its series finale in May of 2002. It also spawned two feature films.

Both Anderson and Duchovny have confirmed they will return for season 11. Chris Carter is set, once again, as Executive Producer.
