The truth is closer than ever.
Back in January 2016, Mulder and Scully returned after a 15 year absence in a brand new revival season of “The X-Files,“ which ended up being successful enough that FOX ordered up another season. When can you dig into Season 11?
FOX revealed today that “The X-Files” will re-open on January 3, 2018!
EW recently previewed the first three episodes…
“After episode one delves into the Cigarette Smoking Man’s (William B. Davis) backstory and apparent family ties to Mulder, the second hour opens with a time jump to put distance between Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) and the events of the premiere. And episode three is a darkly comedic hour, penned by Carter, focusing on doubles and doppelgängers.”
They continued, “But beyond the humor, the larger mythology of The X-Files — like the fallout from Scully’s abduction and the chip that was implanted in her neck — continues to shape Mulder and Scully’s world.”
Most of Season 11 will be devoted to “monster of the week” episodes.
Mitch Pileggi, Annabeth Gish and Barbara Hershey are confirmed for the new season.
