"The X-Files" has been renewed for a further series to be broadcast in the 2017-18 television season, following a successful re-boot of the sci-fi favourite previous year. It looks like series creator Chris Carter, who will return as Executive Produer this year, was able to work out a deal with Fox.

FOX has ordered a second chapter of THE X-FILES event series.

"Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators - these are the hallmarks of great TV shows".

The series, which originally debuted in September 1993 for a nine-season run, returned in January 2016 with a 6-episode min-series. Production is scheduled to begin during the summer.

Speaking to "Entertainment Weekly" back in 2015, Duchovny alluded to being open to doing more seasons if the initial revival was well-received.

The first episode of the last series drew 5.1 million viewers and a 19% share of the television audience, breaking a record for the broadcaster.

While the limited number of episodes made many fans believe the revival was a one-off event, Fox had yet to confirm the eleventh season until this week.

The X-Files, which follows Mulder and Scully as they investigate unexplained and often paranormal cases, returned a year ago as a six-episode event series more than a decade after the end of its original run, averaging almost 16 million viewers across multiple platforms, according to Fox. Our review of the latest installment in this newly revived sci-fi classic is a flawless starting point before Season 11.
