'The X-Files' is coming back

Bruce Springsteen tells President Trump in new song: 'Don't tell me a lie and sell it as a fact'

Fox have confirmed that they are once again re-opening The X-Files, with the series slated to return for another "event" run, this time consisting of 10 episodes.

Executives at Fox have been keen to nail down this further series, but have apparently been unable to do so until now due to scheduling conflicts.

Fox President David Madden, "Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators - these are the hallmarks of great TV shows".

For those keeping track, The X-Files is the clear ratings victor in Fox's streak of revivals, outpacing both iterations of 24 - the 2015 event series and just-concluded spinoff Legacy - and the current brief stint for Prison Break.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. Production on the new run kicks off this summer. The new season will be another limited run, with 10 episodes, and will see the return of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as the iconic Federal Bureau of Investigation agents Mulder and Scully.

We discovered Scully had DNA alien which enabled her to possibly save the dying Mulder, only for a UFO to arrive at the end of the season finale, leaving fans to ask, what will happen next? Because now, we're going to get a resolution to that cliffhanger when The X-Files makes its second return to Fox.

In addition, Chris Carter - who created the original as well as the 2016 reboot - will return for this one as well. Also, season 10 featured quite a significant retcon to the overall mythology of the series in the six part event series that didn't sit well with a lot of the fanbase.

Furthermore, the fans of "The X-Files" Season 11 are hoping that the new episodes will finally answer the cliff hanger it left beforehand.

Fox is on a roll with these revived series, having also recently brought back Prison Break and 24.
