The upcoming season also sees the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) making a deal Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) just can't refuse, seemingly putting the assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at odds with Mulder and Scully.

Furthermore, a Fox spokesperson said in a statement to Screen Rant that Anderson "has not commented on returning as it's premature in that she is now filming the new event series". Anderson has played Agent Scully, alongside her costar David Duchovny, AKA Fox Mulder, in every incarnation of the show. Unfortunately that meant Mulder fell ill and was near death with Scully believing the only way they could save him was to find William and use his DNA to stave off the infection. Joked Anderson, "He's still bald". Carter revealed that long-time writer Darin Morgan has worked on a "very, very funny" episode that will feature Walter Skinner. There will even be many flashback scenes showing a young Skinner in The X-Files Season 11. I'm back for the season 11 because I thought that we had not finished.

"No, no, I think this will be it for me."

Carter also promised an action-packed season. "[She] has her own special take on the show", Carter said.

Carter teased a few Easter eggs as well, noting, "There's things on Mulder's bulletin board", and that fans can expect the season to end on another cliffhanger. Duchovny needled the showrunner: "Knowing the way Chris likes to name characters, I'm surprised he hasn't had a character named Cliff Hanger". "And it was a matter of whether I was going to jump on-board or be the bad guy-forever".

The X-Files returns in early 2018 on Fox.

The trailer premiered at New York Comic-Con on Sunday and man, it looks exciting!
