I had a feeling this was going to happen. Fox has announced that The X-Files will be back for yet another season. Put it this way, when you’ve got audiobooks that fans are clamoring to buy and listen to you know something is going to happen on the television side of things. The X-Files is one of those shows that just won’t go away because there’s too much audience demand for it. Looks like Mulder and Scully will be with us for an 11th time in yet another revival of the show.
Here’s part of the press release:
Fox today confirmed that The X-Files is coming back for a limited 11th season starring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny as Agents Mulder and Scully. The series will be executive produced by show creator Chris Carter, as was the 10th season that revived the show for a limited, six-episode 10th season last year. This go around, Fox has ordered a 10-episode season.
“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,” David Madden, Fox Broadcasting Company president, said in a press release. “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.”
