The X-Files: Season 10 (2016)




Critic Consensus: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's chemistry remains intact, but overall, The X-Files revival lacks the creative spark necessary to sustain the initial rush of nostalgia.

Critic Reviews for The X-Files: Season 10

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (22)

The first episode of the six foreshadows a compelling new series, with hints that it will ultimately knit together many of the show's touchstones, such as the abduction of Mulder's sister, The X-Files, Roswell and the origin of the show's Smoking Man.

Sydney Morning Herald

Well, that was a decent bit of fun, even if it wasn't terribly believable from a character perspective. Or from any other perspective, for that matter.

The Age (Australia)

Nostalgia may have powered us through the worst of it, but there's some genuinely excellent stuff too.

Full Review… | June 12, 2016

Season 10 was messy. Sometimes great, sometimes terrible. In other words, it's just like every single season of The X-Files.

Full Review… | February 25, 2016

By all accounts, the new episodes get better as they go on, so if it's paranormal and powersuits you're hankering after, this will hit the spot.

Independent (UK)

It's hard to imagine anyone but the most loyal X-philes still believing.

Audience Reviews for The X-Files: Season 10

Chris Carter firebombs The X-Files with a Season 10 miniseries that throws out the series mythology and begins anew. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully rejoin the FBI and reopen the X-Files division after an investigative journalist named Tad O'Malley exposes the Syndicate?s true agenda. However, the show quickly becomes episodic, following a monster-of-the-week format, and doesn't really have an over-arcing storyline. In addition to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis and a few others reprise their roles from the original series. And there are some nice homages and callbacks that help to create a familiar feel. Season 10 of The X-Files has its moments, but overall it's a weak revival that doesn't accomplish much.
