The Truth Is Out There...

It was on the 10th of September 1993 that we first discovered The X-Files when it debuted on Fox. With an original total of 9 seasons it went through until the 19th of May, 2002 and had 202 episodes. In 2016 a 10th season was aired followed by an 11th season in 2017.

Chris Carter, the creator, wanted to reverse the gender stereotypes of believer and skeptic hence the reason why Scully (Gillian Anderson) is the skeptic and Mulder (David Duchovny) is the believer.


There were two films that came out of the series - the first in 1998 and a second which was released in 2008.
