FOX is available as a linear channel and non-linear offering in over 340-million homes across the US and virtually all international TV markets.
The X-Files , an Emmy – and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history, returns thirteen years after the original series. Having originally premiered in September 1993, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show earned 16 Emmy Awards , five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award .
Produced by 20 Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, The X-Files is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
