The X-Files has captured the hearts of skeptics and believers across the globe since 1993.

The truth is out there, according to the show’s much loved intro, and it could be paranormal or simply science.

The thrill, mystery and ambiguity of this cult classic has captured the hearts of both skeptics and believers since 1993.

Fox president David Madden is ready for fans to see 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.”

The show returned in 2016 and had left the X-Files cult wanting to believe there’s another series on the cards.

In April this year, the announcement came that our screens would be spooked yet again with an eleventh series. This time with 10 episodes.

The question on our minds: when is the X-Files back on TV?

The answer: the surreal show will return January 3, 2018.

Despite the show being about the unknown, cast members Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny have not held back with the sneaky suggestions about what might be in store.

Whatever the truth really is, there is no doubt that the new series will be gripping and suitably spine-chilling.
