I can’t wait for the all new X Files TV show to hit in January and finally us UK viewers now know what channel it will be aired and to the shock and surprise for many, its not back on Sky One.
In a furious bidding war, its been announced that Channel 5 have run the rights to show the all new six part run which FOX are describing as an “Event!”
“Securing the UK premiere of the hugely anticipated return of The X-Files is a major coup for the channel and will create one of the television events of 2016,” said Ben Frow, director of programmes at Channel 5. “This acquisition underlines our ambition to deliver a diverse slate of brilliant, must-see programming on Channel 5.”
Steve Cornish, of 20th Century Fox Distribution. said“We’re delighted to be partnering with Channel 5 as we bring the next chapter of one of our most celebrated series to fans around the world,”
An official date has not been announced, lets just hope Channel 5 will not drag their heels like they have with Gotham Season 2.
