A little over two years ago we found out that The X-Fileswas being revived as a limited event series with show creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning.
Now comes word that FOX has ordered another run of episodes, with Carter, Duchovny, and Anderson all returning once again. This time around the season will include 10 brand new episodes, and they may be arriving sooner than you think: the plan is to begin filming this summer, for a premiere either in late 2017 or sometime in 2018.
If the trailer and brief video previews just aren’t fully getting the job done when it comes to sating that nearly insatiable craving for new episodes of The X-Files you’ve been struggling with for years now, perhaps a newly released video can help a little.
The video is a behind the scenes featurette that runs a little over 20 minutes in length and features not only peeks at the show’s revival but interviews with cast and crew such as stars David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Mitch Pileggi, as well as creator Chris Carter and others.

Crowds rushed into the Main Stage room at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, filling up the auditorium for a chance to see David Duchovny (Fox Mulder), Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), and show creator Chris Carter speak about the upcoming The X-Files mini-series revival.
The panel’s moderator, Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), came onto the stage first and announced that the audience would be treated to “the first episode of season 10,” to an eruption of cheers. “Afterwards,” Nanjiani said, “I’m going to speak with some people involved with the show “” and my goal will be not to cry. But, before the episode airs, we have a special guest on the screen who’d like to say a word.” Gillian Anderson then appeared on the screen, telling the fans to enjoy the premiere.
