All-new paranormal cases

"The X-Files" season 11 will be returning with ten episodes. Although it can't be considered as a full season, fans are thankful that it's more than the previous season which only had six episodes. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as FBI agents who specialize in paranormal cases.

Although the field of paranormal activities is quite wide, the showrunners have revealed last month that there will be no mythology-themed episodes. It is worth noting that "The X-Files" season 10 focused more on mythology episodes and were greeted with criticism and negative feedback.

The showrunners have previously explained that the mythology episodes were needed to explain to the viewers what was happening in the previous seasons.

Stand-alone episodes pushes Mulder and Scully to new adventures

According to Entertainment Weekly, David Madden, FOX Entertainment chairman, revealed that eight out of the ten episodes for "The X-Files" season 11 will be standalone episodes. That means that the said episodes are not interconnected with any other episode in any way, opening doors for Mulder and Scully for new adventures and cases to solve.

"The X-Files" season 11 will pick up from the last scene of season 10 - the one with the big helicopter, and will immediately focus on an adventure that has a lot to do with Mulder and Scully's kid, William.
