What’s This TV Show About?
A sci-fi mystery thriller airing on the FOX television network, The X-Files stars David Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully. Mulder and Scully investigate unexplained or “X-Files” cases — which have answers involving paranormal phenomena. Returning in season 11 are Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Annabeth Gish, Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell, Veronica Cartwright, Chris Owens, and Dean Haglund. They are joined by newcomers including Barbara Hershey and Haley Joel Osment.
Season 11 Ratings
The 11th season of The X-Files averaged a 0.96 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.74 million viewers. Compared to season 10, that’s down by 70% and 61%, respectively. Find out how The X-Files stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
The ratings are low and Anderson has said that she won’t be back if FOX orders a 12th season. While this could change, I’m thinking there won’t be another season. I’ll keep an eye trained on the trades and will update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on The X-Files cancellation or renewal news.
