Fox will pair the return of “The X-Files,” with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back on board, with the new procedural drama “9-1-1,” with the premiere date set for Wednesday, Jan. 3.
The launch will follow the fall finales of the network’s dramas “Empire” and “Star” in December, with both shows set to return in March 2018. Additional schedule details are still to be announced.
Created and executive produced by Chris Carter, “The X-Files” returns as a 10-episode event series, the second installment since Fox revived the beloved sci-fi series in 2016.
“9-1-1” comes from creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, and stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton.
