We’ve got some good news for fans of Fox’s The X-Files who couldn’t get enough of the 10-episode revival series which ran in early 2016! After a long period of planning and scheduling, Indie Wire reports that Fox plans to bring back the series for another 10 episodes during its 2017-2018 television season. Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson are all set to return for the upcoming project, and production will begin as early as this summer.
Here’s what Fox Broadcasting Company’s President, David Madden, had to say about the new series:
“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. 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.”
Details about the storyline of the new series are under wraps, and Madden’s comments do little to shed light on the subject. Fox and Chris Carter’s Ten Thirteen Productions released an eerie new teaser poster for the project, which strays from the typical smoky blacks and grays which usually dominate promotional materials for The X-Files.
