Airs: Mondays 8 PM EST
Premiere: January 24th
Network: FOX
Starring: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi
Series Website:

Description: Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES will be a thrilling, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

Status: Though the numbers dropped steadily for this show throughout its six-episode run, it still ended as one of the topped rated shows for the 2015-16 season. There has been no official word on a second revival season, though it is pretty apparent that FOX wants it back.  Current rumors are that it will be delayed to the 2017-18 season to work around the schedules of Duchovny, Anderson, Carter, and the rest.

    I absolutely loved and still love the X-Files. My favourite SYFY show ever!! Please bring it back. The relationship between Scully and Mulder is the best…. drama and comedy all wrapped in the making of an excellent show. Just my opinion.
