Season 11 of "The X-Files" will begin on January 3, 2018, US network Fox has announced.
Conspiracy chasers and alien investigators Dana Scully and Fox Mulder return in January 2018 with another season of "X-Files" cases.
The FBI agents made a TV comeback in 2016 after a 14-year absence following the conclusion of season 9 in 2002.
With Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny back in their original roles, season eleven will run to ten episodes, nearly doubling its predecessor's relatively short count of six, reflecting an increased confidence in "The X-Files" to attract a sizeable audience.
It's also to be Anderson's final engagement with the series, having told a New York Comic-Con audience in October that "I think this will be it for me."
Towards the end of "The X-Files" original run, Gillian Anderson won a British Independent Film Award and was nominated for a Satellite Award for film drama "The House of Mirth."
She has received widespread acclaim for her leading roles in stage play "A Streetcar Named Desire"
television dramas "Bleak House," "Hannibal," "Great Expectations," and "The Fall."
