The X-Files are officially coming back for a 10-episode run.
A year after the sci-fi series was revived for a six-episode comeback, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, TV bosses at Fox have announced a new series will shoot this summer (17), with an air date of either late 2017 or early 2018.
Duchovny and Anderson will be back again.
