New Episodes of “The X-Files” Likely Coming in 2018

Aside from a messy, info dump-heavy first episode, I personally found last year’s limited revival of “The X-Files” to be incredibly satisfying. It was great to see Mulder and Scully back after so many years, the episodes (particularly “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”) were enjoyable, and the ambitious finale left me hungry for more. But when are we getting more, if ever?

Soon, friends. Soon.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Fox president David Madden just told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that the network is expecting “to have an announcement very shortly” in regards to the renewal of “The X-Files.” The only holdup, he says, is that deal-making has been made a little bit complex due to the busy schedules of both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny… who better be paid equally when the show does return!

Madden also revealed that future seasons of the series will likely be longer than six-episodes, but not quite as long as the show’s original 20+ episode-per-season format.

Expect the return of “The X-Files,” if all goes according to plan, in 2018.

    I’m happy to hear you like it. So did I. So much slamming it in other reviews. The original show had season premieres that were info heavy and heavily criticized too. I enjoyed the episodes and thought the finale was tense and riveting. There is a lot of awfulness in the world. I tend to enjoy things I love like “The X-FIles” than harp on them for whatever reason. I can’t wait for more.

    I hope the character Skinner gets to have some episodes of his own where he helps out. I always loved how badass he would get.

    • Frank Gambino

      Hell yeah. My favorite Skinner part of the series is when he calls Mulder from his bubble bath on the Hollywood ad episode

      • Justin McGill

        I liked the Skinner centric episode I believe called zero sum.. with Skinner covering his tracks.

    Satisfying!? The 6 part miniseries was about as bad and wholly unneeded as a Trump presidency! If you’re a one trick pony (Chris Carter), let that Pony thrive in its heyday, don’t make it do new tricks that no one cares about.

    • Jason Scarpelli

      Your opinion doesn’t count for ‘everybody’ lol

  • John Lackey’s Teeth

    Disappointed with the mini series to the point that news about the 2018 revival doesn’t give me high hopes for a return to the glory days of Mulder and Scully.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    I’m anxiously awaiting more. Some had negative comments due to the fact they were expecting something different and/or they didn’t like that the 6 part event had an actual edge of the seat cliffhanger and they have to wait. Which is ridiculous.

    My biggest issue was it stretched my willingness to believe too far. I’m not talking about the aliens, I believe. I’m not talking about the ghosts, I BELIEVE. I’m not even talking about the cheeky human turning cell phone selling lizard guy, go tell it on the mountain! I believe! But if you expect me to believe that all it takes is a Gottcha journalist YouTube video to get your job at the FBI back, a job you haven’t held in over a decade, a job you lost after being abducted by aliens, brought back from the dead, exposed conspiracy at the highest levels, convicted of murder, sentenced to death, and on the run as a fugitive,well, I say good day sir, or madam. And while I’m familiar with the ‘forgive forget’ agreement (which I found difficult to believe as well)in the last movie, it still rankles me a bit.

      You have to think outside of the box and use your imagination. Especially with The X-Files

  • Well they aren’t getting any younger so lets hurry this thing up!

    Side note – Always thought their monster of the week episodes were the best (mostly because main mythology is so loose and sloppily put together). Wouldn’t mind seeing a few more of those!

    • Frank Gambino

      Lol seriously. They’re no spring chickens. Nonetheless I can’t wait for it. I been binging the first season on Netflix.

  • PsychoMantis18

    Sweeeet. Really dug season 10. Helped make up for I Want To Believe what I saw wasn’t a steaming piece of shit.

    • Satanzilla

      Is English your second language, psoriasis monkey 18?

      • PsychoMantis18

        3rd, why?

        • Satanzilla

          Go troll elsewhere — in a language you can converse in competently.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Says the troll of BD.

            Simplezilla 101 –

            1. Make an incredibly stupid comment.

            2. Ignore criticism of stupid comment due to inability to comprehend and/or general lack of integrity.

            3. Respond with another incredibly stupid comment unrelated to the first.

            Explosive new revelations from psoriasis monkey18: you need to breathe air to live. The earth revolves around the sun. Yes gather round children, because more wisdom is sure to follow….

  • Adam Clifton

    Excellent news. I don’t mind 13 episodes a season but 6 was way too short

  • Meisha’s Taint

    Can Reese Darby come back?

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    please dont make it as rushed as this last season where everything happened too fast


    X-Files should just stick with the monster of the week/comedy episodes or really dark horror episodes like ‘Home’ no one cares bout the Alien abduction/invasion even Mulder gives no fucks bout it
