Filming for the upcoming series will begin in summer 2017 and the show is expected to air sometime in late 2017 or early 2018.
The X-Files will return for a second event series, FOX Broadcasting Company announced Thursday. Nevertheless, all that is in the past now and Chris Carter's signature show is a go.
The X Files was revived in 2016 for a six-episode run and proved extremely popular with fans, drawing in high viewing figures for the network.
Fox has confirmed it ordered 10 more episodes of The X-Files.
This is published unedited from the PTI feed. That run gained the show some new fans as well as pleasing those who remember its origins way back in the 1990s.
In 2016, The X-Files Season 10 drew an average multi-platform audience of almost 16 million viewers.
It turns out the mysteries of the universe are still not solved and Mulder and Scully are returning to unearth more truths.
It's reported the new X-Files series will debut for the 2017-18 season reuniting David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson with creator and showrunner Chris Carter.
Sure, we already know that we want a season 12, and for the show to work like Sherlock where we get another season every couple of years.
We haven't seen the last of Mulder and Scully just yet. Here's hoping this new batch of episodes unfold with a little more consistency than the Event Series episodes did!
Iconic characters, rich storytelling and bold creators are arguably the three pillars that have helped X-Files stand the test of time.
The good news is that Fox has made a decision to oblige because the network has since announced and confirmed that the TV series will be returning for Season 11.
