Talks about "The X-Files" season 11 revival have been rampant since the last quarter of 2016, but it was only until recently, Thursday, to be exact, that FOX officially announced the series revival. According to reports, FOX has given the green light for one of the longest-running tv show in the U.S. and have given the showrunners ten episodes for the upcoming series revival.

The majority of the original cast are set to partake in the revival, including lead stars, gillian anderson and David Duchovny. Previously, reports were circulating that Anderson and Duchovny are giving the showrunners a difficult time because of their logistics and current residence.

However, it appears that all those logistics issues were ironed out - if there were any because the production is reportedly all set.

The upcoming "The X-Files" revival is not to be considered as a full season as FOX announced that it would be like a second chapter to the event series that was launched last year. Creator of the series, Chris Carter, will also be handling the mini-series that will be comprised of 10 episodes.

Fresh, modern mysteries to keep up with modern times

In the era of technology, smartphones, and digital mishmash, "The X-Files" revival is expected to keep up with the modern times. That said, new mysteries in the upcoming episodes are expected to learn more on puzzles involving technology and digital mayhem.

As mentioned earlier, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will be reprising their roles as Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have already acknowledged their excitement for their revival project on their respective Twitter accounts.
