Fox, buoyed by the popularity, commissioned an extra four episodes with season ten taking the episode count up to ten. Clearly they are pretty confident they have another smash hit series on their hands when the show is due to air later on this year.

In a statement from David Madden, President of Fox Broadcasting Company, he stated “Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows.

Scully Turns Into an Alien in 'X-Files' Season Finale Opening

Scully Turns Into an Alien in 'X-Files' Season Finale Opening
While a vast majority of Americans were watching Super Bowl 50 on CBS tonight, Fox had something unique up their sleeve, offering a unique bit of counter-programming during the game's halftime festivities. The X-Files Twitter feed released a two and a half minute clip of the opening scene from The X-Files' season finale, My Struggle II, set to air on Monday, February 22. The clip features a rather shocking revelation, especially for fans of Gillian Anderson's Agent Scully.

The clip, which was only available during the halftime show and then taken down shortly thereafter, is quite similar to the pilot episode's opening scene, My Struggle, where Agent Mulder (David Duchovny) revealing his personal history with extraterrestrials. The season finale clip, though features Scully giving her own history with these X-Files, where she discusses the DNA test she is given in the premiere. She revealed that the results showed "DNA anomalies

‘The X-Files’ Episode 3 Recap: How Mulder Got His Groove Back

‘The X-Files’ Episode 3 Recap: How Mulder Got His Groove Back
Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details for the third episode of “The X-Files” revival, titled “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Beast.”

Building on the momentum of the second episode, Monday’s third installment of “The X-Files” reboot is one of the funniest, sweetest, most character-driven entries in the series to date. Joining classics like “José Chung’s From Outer Space” and “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” in terms of humor and imagination, this memorable hour of television is a gift to fans who’ve waited years to add a new favorite to their lists.

Charmingly titled “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Beast,” the show opens on a (purposefully) stereotypical moonlit night deep in the Oregon woods. A blood-curdling scream interrupts a couple of stoners who are busy huffing paint fumes. In the first of several in-jokes, fans might recognize these two burnouts from their appearances in the similarly themed

Everything That was Great (and Terrible) about 'The X-Files' Season 10 Premiere
It's been eight long years since we last saw Mulder and Scully in action, fighting the government in The X-Files: I Want to Believe. In the season 10 premiere of The X-Files revival, the paranormal-hunting duo returned to investigate a new conspiracy, one that draws them out of retirement and back into Mulder's old FBI office. As you might expect, a lot has changed since the end of the series in 2008, and not all of it for the better. Here's everything we liked and disliked about The X-Files season 10 premiere.

‘The X-Files’ Premiere Recap: Lost in Space

‘The X-Files’ Premiere Recap: Lost in Space
Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details for the first episode of “The X-Files.”

Containing virtually none of the wit, tension or style that made the original series so special, Sunday’s premiere of “The X-Files” reboot opens with a three-minute-long monologue (the first of several scattered throughout this talky hour) that reintroduces the show’s basic premise.

Accompanying David Duchovny’s groggy voice-over are images of memorable mutants from the past, including the hideous flukeman, an inbred Peacock brother, the diabolical Eugene Tooms and the brain-sucking Rob Roberts.

From there, we see found-footage of flying saucers and alien autopsies, prehistoric cave paintings, Biblical drawings and vintage clips of President Gerald Ford, all while former agent Fox Mulder drones on about Roswell and various other UFO sightings.

“But we must ask ourselves,” he intones sleepily, “are they really a hoax?”

Despite this less-than-gripping prologue, it’s nice to see the

Ranking and Revisiting ‘The X-Files,’ Watercolor ‘Blade Runner,’ David Foster Wallace Interview, and More

Dailies is a round-up of essential film writing, news bits, videos, and other highlights from across the Internet. If you’d like to submit a piece for consideration, get in touch with us in the comments below or on Twitter at @TheFilmStage.

At Thrillist, Keith Uhlich ranks all 201 episodes of The X-Files from worst to best. As he explains on Twitlonger:

First off, I considered all nine seasons equally. That was a given, and something that really needs to be done in light of the accepted belief by many that the later years are worthless. They are not.

Next, the ranking: I knew what I wanted the bottom entry (201) to be, and I knew that the finale had to be smack dab in the middle at #100 since I think it has some of the finest and least work of the series.

Then I went to the top 10 and bottom 10. I
