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.

Critic Reviews for The X-Files Season 11

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (11)

Certainly if you are among those of us who will never stop wanting to believe, more time with our beloved alien chasers as they trade barbs while battling beasties is always cause for celebration.

Jan 26, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 15, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

After a ragged start, X gets down to business, and the result is mostly pleasurable.

Top Critic

This season, the series, which turns 25 in September, rolls out current news images - North Korea and President Trump, among them - to remind us of those dangers. Still, it doesn't let that overpower the basic appeal of the show.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Early episodes seem stronger this time around with some added timeliness - Russians infiltrating the U.S. government! - and a major mythology reveal in the first episode back.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Based on five episodes made available for preview, things remain uneven -- the first episode is dragged down by more conspiracy blather, interminable voiceover and way too many apocalyptic predictions of doom.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Fortunately, the follow-up season is a vast improvement.

Aug 15, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

I'm glad Gillian Anderson isn't coming back for next season because if this is the direction the show is taking us, it's time for it to end.

Jun 25, 2018 | Full Review…

I think they're good enough, and entertaining enough, that I hope more episodes of The X-Files will be produced. To quote Mulder's poster: "I want to believe."

Audience Reviews for The X-Files: Season 11

The X-Files gets back on track in a limited 10-episode eleventh season. Retconning the Season 10 finale as a vision, Mulder and Scully get back to work investigating paranormal cases involving doppelgangers, mind control drugs, and witchcraft. Still, there are a couple of mythology episodes about Mulder and Scully searching for their son William; believing that he's the key to stopping the apocalyptic plague from Scully's vision. Both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson give strong performances, and there are some interesting guest stars, including Barbara Hershey and Haley Joel Osment. However, Duchovny and Anderson's age is showing and the show isn't as vibrant as it once was (recycling ideas from previous episodes). Season 11 may be the end of The X-Files (at least this iteration of it), and if so it serves as a fitting coda for the series (though not a particularly strong one).
