(David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson)

FOX International Channels (FIC) brings the next mind-bending chapter of The X-Files to over 60 countries. The highly anticipated, six-episode event series helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter and starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, will air on FIC’s FOX channel immediately following the debut on FOX in the US on January 24.

It will air locally on DStv channel 125 and StatSat channel 131 on January 25 and 26 at 20h10 express from the US and thereafter on Tuesdays at 20h10 from February 2.

FOX has long been the world’s most widely distributed premiere entertainment destination that audiences in the US and abroad turn to for groundbreaking, trend-setting and critically acclaimed programming. The X-Files international release advances FOX’s promise to deliver the best series first, to viewers worldwide.

The X-Files, an Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. It returns 13 years after the original series. Having originally premiered in September 1993, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favourite 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 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, The X-Files is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
