Fox is reopening 'The X-Files' for 2017-18 season

Another installment of The X-Files is out there — and it's coming to Fox during the 2017-18 TV season.

The network Thursday announced a second edition of its X-Files revival, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter all back on board. Production will begin during the summer on the 10-episode event series, which features Duchovny and Anderson playing FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Fox Broadcasting president Dave Madden welcomed the return of the show, which became a huge hit during its initial series run on Fox in the 1990s.

“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators — these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files  has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” Madden said in a statement accompanying the announcement. "Chris’s creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon."

The X-Files, which follows Mulder and Scully as they investigate unexplained and often paranormal cases, returned last year as a six-episode event series more than a decade after the end of its original run, averaging nearly 16 million viewers across multiple platforms, according to Fox.
