It turns out the mysteries of the universe are still not solved and Mulder and Scully are returning to unearth more truths.
Sci-fi fans will be pleased to hear that the X-Files reprisal in 2016 proved popular enough to warrant another series – and this time there will be a full 10 episodes as opposed to six.
The Fox network has revealed it’ll appear back on TV screens in either 2017 or 2018, with production kicking off this summer.
David Madden, president of Fox broadcasting company, said: ‘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.
‘Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.’
Mulder and Scully originally began hunting UFOs from 1993 to 2002, before the reboot in 2016.
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.
In the US, the programme drew an average audience of nearly 16 million viewers, according to Fox.
