Foxtel announced today it has secured the latest Season 11 of worldwide TV phenomenon The X-Files returning exclusively to Foxtel’s showcase channel Thursdays from January 4 at 8.30pm Express from the US.
The hit drama series once again stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in their iconic roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as they investigate unexplained “X-Files” cases involving paranormal activity. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI Asst. Director Walter Skinner. The all-new episodes will also feature guest-star appearances by Haley Joel Osment, Barbara Hershey, Annabeth Gish, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Karin Konoval and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.”
Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh said, “We are committed to increasing our content slate in 2018 with sought after, first run programs and in the New Year our customers will begin to see more new shows on Foxtel and Foxtel Now than ever before. Season 11 of The X-Files is the first to launch from the new series we’ve acquired for 2018 and we’re thrilled to deliver The X-Files fans new episodes on the same day as the US broadcast.”
“The Truth” is still out there and the highly anticipated Season 11 kicks off in explosive form with Mulder and Scully searching for their long-lost son William. The latest instalment will move on from the 14-year hiatus of the series delivering the twisted and supernatural episodic stories The X-Files is known for.
Originally premiering in 1993, over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favourite to become one of the most successful television dramas of all time. In 2016, the The X-Files Season 10 revival was a ratings success and the most talked about event series on Twitter generating a significant amount of social media coverage. The series continues to have a massive pop culture influence with a dedicated and passionate fan base.
