With an eleventh season of the much-loved X-Files long confirmed, we’ve now found out just when Mulder and Scully will be returning to the small screen.
As announced by FOX, Season 11 of the genre favourite will premiere on Wednesday, January 3rd in the US. Where UK fans are concerned, no set premiere date has been made public at this stage, although the series will be shown on Channel 5 and is expected to have its season premiere not too long after the show’s US return.
Plot-wise, it appears as if the main focus of this new season will be on the search for Mulder and Scully’s son, William. In terms of cast, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are joined by Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Annabeth Gish, Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell, Chris Owens, Veronica Cartwright, Dean Haglund and new additions in the shape of Haley Joel Osment and Barbara Hershey.
As ever, expect more on the return of The X-Files as we get it.
