Dust off your tinfoil hats: The X-Files revival series to return later this year

After a mostly well-received miniseries return for beloved sci-fi show The X-Files in early 2016, FOX has announced today with a teaser photo that the show will return for the 2017-18 season.

Deadline reports that FOX has ordered a similar 10-episode run for the cult series, and will see the return of stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny as FBI Special Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

As well as the new season, it was announced earlier this week that The X-Files would also be returning in audiobook form in July, with original stories recorded by Anderson and Duchovny.

The X-Files Season 11 will begin production in winter and is set to air in late 2017.
