In a twist which had its origins in an episode first aired 18 years ago, the turn taken by The X-Files in its season 11 premiere in the US last night has shocked fans to their core.
“The X-Files” will return for Season 11 on Wednesday, along with its lead characters, longtime partners Dana Scully and Fox Mulder. At New York Comic Con in October, Anderson said the latest installment of the recently revived sci-fi classic would be here last — an announcement that rattled fans. “I’ve said from the beginning this is it for me,” Anderson told TV Guide.
