The Truth is on CraveTV! From 20th Century Fox Television, Cultural Phenomenon Event Series THE X-FILES, Begins Streaming Today

— April 22, 2016

“This is one of the things The X-Files has always done best: tell an intimate story about two people's challenging and intense relationship in the face of an extremely large, or even intergalactic, threat.” – TV Guide

“It was the perfect upgrading of the old mythos, with enough nods to the past to satisfy diehards, yet with echoes of the current political debate over the gulf between society's haves and have-nots.” – Digital Spy

“Mulder and Scully's search for the truth still has life in it” – Toronto Sun

CraveTV embraces its paranormal side with the wildly popular six-episode event series THE X-FILES, as it begins streaming exclusively today on CraveTV. The series that Globe and Mail television John Doyle called “beautifully crafted entertainment” anchors the streaming service’s hugely popular Sci-Fi & Fantasy collection, and can also be found in the What’s New, Dramas, and Crime & Mystery collections. THE X-FILES encompasses a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the show’s influential mythology. After 13 years “…major themes explored by THE X-FILES still resonate, maybe more now than they did in the ‘90s,” as described by The Toronto Star. The iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny, CALIFORNICATION ) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson, THE FALL) return to search for the truth, as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena. Guest stars include Joel McHale (COMMUNITY), Robbie Amell (THE FLASH), Lauren Ambrose (DIG), Annabeth Gish (THE BRIDGE), Annet Mahendru (THE AMERICANS), Rhys Darby (FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS), Kumail Nanjiani (SILICON VALLEY), and William B. Davis, who reprises his notorious role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” THE X-FILES, a multiple Emmy® and Golden Globes®-winning series, originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favourite to massive international hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, THE X-FILES is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter, and distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
