New Episodes of The X-Files Likely Coming in 2018

The X-FilesAs reported by Entertainment Weekly, Fox president David Madden just told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour that the network is expecting “to have an announcement very shortly” in regards to the renewal of The X-Files. The only holdup, he says, is that deal-making has been made a little bit complex due to the busy schedules of both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

Madden also revealed that future seasons of the series will likely be longer than six-episodes, but not quite as long as the show’s original 20+ episode-per-season format.
