It seems that X-Files will be back on Fox for Season 11. The sequel with ten episodes of this sci-fi drama is supposed to be broadcasted at some time this year or early 2018. Fox gave the statement, and now fans of this show are anxious to see the adventures that FBI agents Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (played by Gillian Anderson) will embark on. The wait won’t be long since the production is supposed to start this summer.
The famous TV show was created by Chris Carter, and it had nine whole seasons from 1993 to 2002 with approximately 202 episodes during that time. It won 16 Emmy awards. The popularity of the show was what forced the company to bring the very much awaited Season 10 made of six episodes last year. Also, two movies have been made based on this classic. As for the new season, Fox still hasn’t disclosed any storyline details, but at least it has been affirmed that the lead roles will again be both Anderson and Duchovny.
X-Files will continue to be investigated by Mulder and Scully. Those are the cases that usually entail paranormal events and stay unresolved until they take them. The two actors seem to be thrilled about the come-back as they are publishing jolly pictures on their Twitter. One of Anderson’s recent tweets to Duchovny said: “You ready for more of this?” and his response was: “Oh yes, been ready since ’93.”
Fox president David Madden said about the show: “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.” He also added, “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.”
It seems that Carter foretold this renewal in 2016, in his interview with the New York Times: “I can tell you, almost without a doubt, we will come back.” Of course, he was correct, and the fans are delighted.
