Happy Anniversary, X-Files!
The legendary mystery sci-fi series The X-Files aired its pilot episode September 10, 1993, launching intrepid FBI special agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) on a never-ending odyssey to unearth the paranormal phenomena behind unsolved cases.
The show spent nine seasons (1993-2002) on Fox, followed by two theatrical releases – The X Files (1998) and The X Files: I Want to Believe (2008) – before returning to TV with a six-episode 10th season in 2016. X-Files creator Chris Carter has a 10-episode 11th season in the works, planned for release in 2018.
