The X-Files reveals season 11 trailer


Intriguing images to be sure.

Elsewhere in the trailer, Skinner is seen in a rare meeting with the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis).

Barbara Hershey (Damien, Once Upon A Time) will have a recurring role in season 11, according to Deadline. But of course it arrives even as series star Gillian Anderson revealed that this season will be her last as Dana Scully.

Asked if she would be open to return for more episodes beyond that, the 49-year-old actress told reporters at New York Comic Con Sunday: "No". The tenth season ran for six episodes, but season 11 has been extended to 10 episodes. Carter said we will see more of William than we have in a long time and the show will explore the father/mother/son dynamic.

In 2016, THE X-FILES drew an average Multi-Platform audience of almost 16 million viewers and was last season's No. 2 broadcast drama. Last season only had two mythology episodes, but with 10 episodes, this season has the opportunity to give us a lot more mythology and that thought really excites me.

Interestingly, Skinner has never shown up in any of Darin Morgan's episodes. People are truly excited to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their roles as former Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who deal with the paranormal. Bleeding Cool reports that Anderson told the press that she has no intention of playing Scully again in the future, and "The X-Files" season 11 will be giving her character a conclusion. Now, it seems the world is on the brink of apocalypse (sounds familiar), and it's fallen to Scully and Mulder to forestall the end of civilization, in addition to trying to find their long-vanished son, William. All Carter would say was "Langley is in the show this season". He confirmed that no one from the X-Files had contacted him about returning, though.
