LOS ANGELES (AP) — The truth is out there: “The X-Files” is coming back.

Fox said Thursday it has ordered a second chapter of what it’s calling an “X-Files” ”event series.” The 10-episode series will air during the upcoming 2017-18 TV season.

The 1993-2002 drama about paranormal events and UFOs returned in 2016 for a six-episode run with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
