The first two images of the upcoming 11th season of ‘The X-Files’ has arrived, via EW, and we couldn’t be more excited. The series will pick up just where season 10 left off. This season we will be getting more episodes, 10 to be exact. Fans will be excited to learn that 8 of those will be “monster-of-the-week” type episodes.
EW also shared a preview of the first 3 episodes, including that Mulder and Scully’s child, William, will “come to the fore” which will cause challenges for the partners, but in the end may bring them even closer together.

 After episode one delves into the Cigarette Smoking Man’s (William B. Davis) backstory and apparent family ties to Mulder, the second hour opens with a time jump to put distance between Mulder and Scully and the events of the premiere. And 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.” Ew wrote.



The site continued, “A powerful figure played by Barbara Hershey emerges in this season’s story, though the showrunner says any resemblance between her red hair and Scully’s is purely coincidental. “It was a thrill to work with her,” Carter says. He also teases the addition of a so-called Mr. Y — and some characters who only appear to be new. Season 11 will also explore the motive behind one of the biggest shockers of last season: loyal ally Agent Reyes (Annabeth Gish) confessing that she’s in league with the Cigarette Smoking Man. And the showrunner says we’ll get a new angle on Mulder and Scully’s long-suffering boss, Assistant Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). “Familiar alliances are rattled,” Carter says.”


David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Mitch Pileggi will reprise their roles and will be joined by William B. Davis, Annabeth Gish, Karin Konoval, and Barbara Hershey.
