At the beginning of 2016, we were treated to the long awaited new season of THE X-FILES. Granted it was only 6 episodes, and among those 6, 2 were pretty darned great. The rest…. well, we assumed there were going to be more, right? They couldn’t just end it they way they did on that freakin’ cliffhanger, right?
Rest easy, fiends. Fox has announced 10 more new episodes, which will make up the upcoming 11th season.
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said Fox president David Madden. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.”
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are set to return, and production begins this summer! No release date yet, but it’s expected to arrive either later this year, or early next.
