Another installment of the rebooted X Files returns for a new season and soon. The premiere date has been announced on a poster just released, with Mulder and Scully returning to our screens on January 3rd, 2018.

Well, that's when it will air on FOX in America, but it will no doubt be just a day or two later here, with RTE2 showing it in Ireland in 2016.

This will mark the eleventh season of the sci-fi series which initially ran from 1993 to 2002 and included a feature film in 1998.

The 2016 six-part reboot series proved popular with fans and definitely left enough of a cliffhanger to warrant another outing.

The upcoming ten-part season is set to stay true to its "monster of the week" format while it will also guest star Haley Joel Osment in a Skinner-Centric episode. Worth watching for that reason alone.
