The X-Files is going to give fans and critics what they want by ditching mythology episodes.
In a report from EW, Fox boss David Madden assured fans that season 11 will feature 8 standalone episodes focusing on Mulder and Scully's new adventures.
Read his comment below:
We’re really proud of last season.
We had the responsibility to explain to the audience what had happened in the intervening seven or eight years. We’re free from that responsibility this time and can just plunge in and tell the stories. We’re having a lot of fun doing it. Eight of the episodes will be stand-alone stories so they will be classic ‘Mulder and Scully plunging into new adventures.'
As to what to expect from The X-Files season 11's plot, here's what Madden offered:
We start the season right up from where the season finale left off with that big helicopter and takes you right from there.
You’ll be launched into a very urgent adventure that has a lot to do with William — Mulder and Scully’s kid. so the search for William will be a significant thread through the show. You will see the Cigarette Smoking Man [William B. Davis]. You may see The Lone Gunmen somewhere along the line. There will be other characters from the previous mythology that will be reprised.
The X-Files returns in 2018 on FOX.
