FOX Renews The X-Files For Season 11
The X-Files is returning to FOX for an eleventh season. The broadcast network announced on Thursday that the show will return for a ten-episode installment, heavily up from the six-episode season ten. Creator Chris Carter will executive produce the new season with both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The event series will air during the 2017 – 2018 season, with production kicking off this summer.
“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 David Madden, President, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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 series returned for its tenth season last year and was the #2 broadcast drama of the season.
