It was 1993 when FBI agents, Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) first captured our attention in sci-fi series, The X-Files. Now, 26 years on, SBS VICELAND is beyond thrilled to announce its return, for the first time on Australian television in fully remastered HD.

For those who didn’t catch it first time round, The X-Files follows the unconventional Mulder, who takes it upon himself to investigate unsolved cases – known as the X-Files – that he believes involve paranormal phenomena. In the hopes of debunking his theories, the FBI teams him up with Scully, a sceptical agent who has a degree in medicine and a strong bias towards the scientific. As the pair works to solve these unexplained cases, Mulder’s strong belief in the forces of the unknown continues to challenge Scully’s rational mind.

The X-Files won a bounty of awards over its 11 seasons, including Screen Actors’ Guild awards for Anderson and a BAFTA for creator Chris Carter. 

Never be afraid to believe.


From June 10, The X-Files airs weeknights at 7:30pm on SBS VICELAND. After broadcast, episodes will be available at SBS On Demand.
