The X-Files: Season 11 (2018)




Critic Consensus: Though it may not make many new believers, The X-Files' return to business as usual is a refreshing upgrade from the show's underwhelming previous outing.

Tv Season Info

'The truth is out there,' and FBI agents Scully and Mulder seek it in this sci-fi phenomenon about their quest to explain the seemingly unexplainable. Their strange cases include UFO sightings, alien abductions and just about anything else paranormal. The tales were spooky and well-written, but the long-running cult favorite's strength was a gallery of intriguing (when they weren't just enigmatic) characters, and the dynamic---and intense bond---between believer Mulder and skeptic Scully.

Critic Reviews for The X-Files: Season 11

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (9)

Season 11 so far isn't flawless, but it's a lively, character-focused affair that feels far more unified than we'd ever anticipated, a massive improvement over Season 10 that gives us genuine hope for the second half.

True believers who have devoured most if not all of the 208 previous episodes likely will find it thrilling simply to be strung along anew.

Top Critic

The 2016 six-episode revival was solid, but Season 11 really hits its stride, flexing the full range of X-Files muscles (horror, sci-fi, mystery, comedy, romance) and fully embracing its aging heroes and place in the age of fake news.

The first return felt like the show was relearning to walk; now it's off and running.

December 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The X-Files Season 11 seems intent on proving the benefits that come with age and experience. It's succeeding.
