We’ve been hearing since summer 2016 that Fox wants ‘further instalments of The X-Files‘, which is hardly surprising given the ratings success of the previous run.
And now, finally, the next season of the show has officially been announced. Season 11 of The X-Files is definitely happening.
Creator Chris Carter will oversee ten new episodes, with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprising the roles of Dana Scully and Fox Mulder once again.
Fox Broadcasting Company president David Madden had this to say…
“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.
“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.”
Fans won’t have to wait very long either: Collider is reporting that the The X-Files season 11 is “on the fast track with production scheduled to begin this summer with an aim to debut in the 2017-2018 [fall season].”
