Fox’s paranormal show The X-Files has survived 3 presidential administrations and keeps on striving! The show surrounding agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they investigated “X-Files” for the FBI has spanned 9 seasons (more than 200 episodes) and two feature length films. The show recently returned for a limited-run 6-eipsode 10th season where it gained some impressive ratings as Mulder and Scully returned to investigate the paranormal. Bottom line, the show still have fans who “want to believe.” It’s almost a no-brainer that the show would once again return for an 11th season.
Fox announced today that the show will have a 10-episode (increased for last years 6-episodeseason) 11th season for the show. Duchovny and Anderson are expected to reprise their now iconic roles for the upcoming season with Chris Carter returning as Executive Producer. Fox Broadcasting Company President David Madden expressed his excitement in a press release.
“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.”
The 10th season ended with a cliffhanger as the spacecraft shined its lights on Scully as the outbreak of the virus was descending across the country. With Mulder sick, they will have to find their missing son William, and still find a way to save everyone. The cast had already expressed interest in returning, so now it looks like we’ll get more fun, weird stories featuring our favorite FBI agents.
