The 11th season of The X-Files is happening and will come out in 2018

The truth is out there, and the characters created in the early 1990s by Chris Carter seemly still have a lot of it to find. As many of you might already know, The X-Files (1993– ) TV series already have the 11th season on the works. Filming has already started in Vancouver, as star David Duchovny has suggested via his official Twitter account. According to FOX, on the new season’s presentation in New York, the first episode is expected to air midseason.

Fans can be happy because the main trio of stars, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi will reprise their classic characters Fox Mulder, Dana Scully and Walter Skinner respectively. Other well known secondary actors will also reprise their roles, like William B. Davis’s Cigarette Smoking Man, Annabeth Gish’s Monica Reyes or Veronica Cartwright’s Cassandra Spender. It’s been also reported that veteran actress Barbara Hershey will play “a powerful figure who represents a mysterious organization“, marking the addition of a new recurrent character to the series.

The trio of main The X-Files (1993– ) episodes writers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, and James Wong have been announced to be back to pen this new season, consisting of 10 episodes. It’s also been reported that this new season most of the episodes will stand by themselves as independent mysteries and adventures, breaking the continuity of the main story for the series. For fans like me, this is really good news evoking the magic of those early episodes back in the 1990s when our heroes were facing all kinds of supernatural, biological, demoniacal and alien threats, each one of them more fascinating than the previous one.

Parallel to that, in an interview with Den of Geek!, The X-Files (1993– ) creator Chris Carter talked about his plans for making a third movie based on the series, after the films The X Files: Fight the Future (1998) and The X Files: I Want to Believe (2008). It seems that Mulder and Scully are going to be in good shape towards the end of this second decade of the new millennium. Will they ever find all the truth out there? Probably not, what would we do if no more of it was out there?
