“The X-Files” will return to FOX in 2018.
At the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour today, Fox Entertainment president David Madden spilled some beans on the forthcoming eleventh season of “The X-Files.” For starters, we’ve learned that the massive cliffhanger at the end of Season 10 will be the start of Season 11.
“When we start the [new] season, it will pick up right where the season finale from the last season left off,” Madden revealed. “So it’s that big – if you remember the ending, with the helicopters [circling]. It takes you right from there. We will then get launched into a very urgent adventure that will have a lot to do with William, Mulder and Scully’s kid. The search for William will thread through the show.”
Madden also noted that most of the new episodes will be standalone stories.
“You will see the Cigarette Smoking Man, you may even see, maybe, tips of the Lone Gunmen somewhere in there,” he said. “There will be other characters from the previous mythology that will be reprised. Eight of the [ten] episodes will be standalone stories, more classic X-Files, Mulder and Scully and other characters plunging into [mysteries].”
