Interesting Facts That You Didn’t Know About ‘The X-Files’

I Want to Believe.

When you think about cult TV shows The X-Files is probably one of the first titles to come to mind.

Running for nine seasons and over 200 episodes, the Fox series debuted on September 10, 1993 and kept us entertained with weekly monsters and aliens until May 2002. Over a decade later, demand was so great to bring the show back that a 10th season was released as miniseries in 2016 starring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

The X-Files marked an important cultural change during the 1990s. Though it started as a cult phenomenon, the program transformed into a pop-culture monolith, especially as more Americans embraced its overarching conspiracy theory plots and anti-government sentiments. To this day, the theme music is associated with the strange and supernatural, and it might even be enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

Though loved by millions, The X-Files still has many mysteries that even the most dedicated of fans might not know about. Do you think you know everything there is to know about the show?
