DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SCREENS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. THE LONG AWAITED EVENT HAS HAPPENED…THE X-FILES RETURNS!!
That’s right all you super-fans, conspiracy theorists and spacemen. The news we have been agonizing, grinding our teeth, yelling at the sky for has come to pass. Last year when we were graced with that 6-episode special event, we were not disappointed. News that Fox wanted more episodes but couldn’t get everyone on board made everything so up in the air.
According to the press release, Fox has confirmed that The X-Files returns with a second installment made of 10-episodes. Based on the information that Fox presented, it will probably act as another special series that followed the last one.
With a cliffhanger like they handed out that last episode, it makes this all the more exciting.
The best part is we don’t even have to wait that long. While the hardcore The X-Files fans truly understand what “waiting” means, production starts this summer and will air in the 2017-18 season. When it comes to writing and filming a show, that’s not too shabby.
Chris Carter will return as Executive Producer and David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will return as our favorite agents (could there really BE a show without them?).
David Madden, the president of Fox, had this to say about the show in the press release:
“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.”
The last special raked in 16 million viewers. I can only imagine that everyone will want to see what happened at the end of “My Struggle II.” Season 11, here we come!
Can’t wait for the new season? Check out what Audible is bringing to the mysterious table.
