The new season of ‘The X-Files’ is quickly approaching. To hold you over until it’s premiere this January we have a sneak peek.
The season 11 premiere, written and directed by series creator Chris Carter, picks up exactly where the previous season left off. Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) become aware that they are not the only ones in a desperate search for William, their son. The must find him first, the fate of the world may depend on it.
The second episode, titled “This”, opens with a time jump that puts distance between Mulder and Scully and the events of the premiere.
Episode three is “a darkly comedic hour, penned by Chris Carter, focusing on doubles and doppelgängers. But beyond the humor, the larger mythology of The ‘X-Files’ — like the fallout from Scully’s abduction and the chip that was implanted in her neck — continues to shape Mulder and Scully’s world.”
Mitch Pileggi will also reprise his role and will be joined by William B. Davis, Annabeth Gish, Karin Konoval, Haley Joel Osment, Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell, and Barbara Hershey. The Lone Gunmen, played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood, are said to be returning as well.
Tune in to Fox on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, at 8/9 E/P for the season 11 premiere of ‘The X-Files’.
