Original ‘X-Files’ Series Heads To MyNetworkTV This Fall

Twentieth Television and the Fox Television Stations have announced the addition of Chris Carter’s original The X-Files series to the MyNetworkTV programming lineup this fall.

Two episodes from previously aired seasons of The X-Files will air on a yet-to-be announced weeknight on MyNetworkTV. Additionally, the program starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is cleared for weekend syndication on the Fox Television Stations.

The move follows strong ratings for the return of a new installment of Carter’s cult supernatural drama on Fox. The two-night return of The X-Files limited series in January pulled in more than 50 million viewers worldwide, according to Fox and Nielsen. The X-Files wraps its six-episode season on Monday February 22 at 8 PM on Fox.

With programming on Monday through Friday, MyNetworkTV reaches over 97% of the country; airing on the Fox Television Stations in each of the top 3 markets including New York (WWOR My9), Los Angeles (KCOP My13), and Chicago (WPWR My50).
