The X-Files is coming back yet again. After its limited 10th season last year, the show will return for another limited season either later this year or early in 2018. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will both reprise their roles for the show, which will run 10 episodes.
This was more or less expected by fans of the show, with the biggest issue being scheduling and other behind-the-scenes issues. Everyone said they wanted to come back but the executives didn’t exactly pass that information along to the stars. Nevertheless, all that is in the past now and Chris Carter’s signature show is a go.
“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 Broadcasting Company Prez David Madden in a press release. “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.”
We’re just glad they’re coming back after that finale last season.
