There's a new featurette for the upcoming 11th season of the X-Files. The new season debuts in two weeks and the video below includes Chris Carter, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi giving some pretty big hints into what we can expect. They talk about the new season being more 'quintessential X-Files' and going from six to ten episodes given them a better chance to get into the flow of things again. We get to see Fox Mulder in a Sasquatch costume, details on the Cigarette-Smoking Man and a return to the "deep state" feel of the classic series. And there is a push by Scully to find their child. She tells Mulder: "I have to find our son. You need him and I need you."
Anderson also explains that the line between Mulder's believing and Scully's skepticism is a little more blurred, but her character will always return to science in the end. X-Files, created by Chris Carter, first premiered in September of 1993 and ran nine seasons which earned them sixteen Emmys, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award. The show returned this past January for a shortend, six-episode 10th season.
X-Files season 11 kicks off on January 3rd, 2018 at 8 PM on Fox.
