The Eleventh Season of The X-Files was officially confirmed on April 20th, 2017.[1]

Fox ordered a new 10-episode installment for the 2017-18 season.[2]

The season will begin airing in the United States during the 2017-18 season. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively. Creator Chris Carter will also return to write and executive produce. Filming began in August 2017,[3] with an air-date estimated later in the year or early 2018.[4] As well as William B. Davis returning as the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man, Veronica Cartwright will be reprising her role as the Smoking Man's ex-wife Cassandra Spender for the first time since the sixth season.[5]

The writing staff for the eleventh season consists of Chris Carter, Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, James Wong, and newcomers who were all previously part ofThe X-Files production staff,Gabe Rotter (writers assistant), Benjamin Van Allen (writers assistant) and Brad Follmer (Carter's personal assistant). After controversy sparked regarding the lack of female writers or directors on the series, it was announced in August 2017 that Carol Banker, a script supervisor on the original series who also directed an episode of The Lone Gunmen, and Holly Dale were added as directors.

The season will consist of two mythology episodes (in both season premiere and finale respectively) and an additional eight episodes of monster-of-the-week episodes in-between.
