The X-Files Forever

The X-Files Turns 24

Happy anniversary, The X-Files!

On this day in 1993, The X-Files began its run with the pilot episode.
Ten TV seasons, two hundred and eight episodes, two feature films, one spin-off series and tons of merchandise – twenty four years later the franchise is still active for the delight of the fandom. The X-Files is FOX’s longest-running sci-fi series and notably its most successful drama series ever. Toward the end of the 1990s, it was the most lucrative show on American television (Fortune magazine, 1998). It was highly recognized by the Golden Globes, setting the record for most wins (3) in the Best Drama Series category – the only genre show to win more than once. According to a survey made by The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the entertainment industry considers The X-Files the best sci-fi/supernatural TV series of all time (third best TV show overall). Time magazine called it the “cultural touchstone” of the 1990s.

Season 11: Eight Stand-Alone Episodes, Two Mythology Chapters

FOX President of Entertainment, David Madden, talked about the next installment at the 2017 summer TV Critics’ Association press tour. The eleventh season is bookended by mythology chapters, even though “we’ll touch on the mythology a little bit in those intervening episodes — a little bit”, Madden said. Madden revealed the season opener picks up right after the ending of “My Struggle II”: “We will then get launched into a very urgent adventure, which will have a lot to do with William, Mulder and Scully’s kid. The search for William will be a significant thread through this show”.
