“The X-Files,” which originally aired on Fox from 1993 to 2002, will be repeated on MyNetworkTV beginning next fall. Two episodes from the original run will be presented on a designated weeknight, and has also been cleared for weekend syndication on the Fox Television Stations. With programming on Monday through Friday, MyNetworkTV reaches over 97 percent 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).
Said Greg Meidel, President of Twentieth Television: “As anticipated, viewers have truly celebrated the return of THE X-FILES and we are thrilled that fans can enjoy the original chapter of the monumental series. The program is a wonderful addition to MyNetworkTV and the FOX Television Stations schedule; and in advance of the upfronts, an opportunity for advertisers to reconnect with one of television’s most iconic shows.”
The current revival on Fox, which will conclude the current six episode season next Monday, is expected to be picked up for the 2016-17 season.
