Breaking: X-Files coming back again

Considering how Chris Carter left us hanging last year, he OWES us.

Just over three years after the last revival of the Chris Carter created series was announced, Fox said Thursday that a new 10-episode run of the Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny-starrer is set to start production 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 Fox Broadcasting Company Prez David Madden today. “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.”

Technically, the 11th season of The X-Files, this new run will air on Fox’s schedule either later this year or early next year. Starting off with strong ratings, the six-episode last revival of the FBI conspiracy and alien tracking drama debuted on January 24, 2016 on the very revival friendly FOX. In my review of 2016 The X-Files revival, I said the latest show was “strikingly serious and silly at the same time, the six episodes are actually a lot like the original X-Files — you either go with it or you don’t.” I added, in my video review that, “and if you want to believe (to paraphrase the poster Duchovy’s Fox Mulder had up in the duo’s FBI HQ basement office in the original series), this X-Files is well worth opening up.”
