The X-Files: Season 10 - Rotten Tomatoes

The X-Files: Season 10 (2016)




Critic Consensus: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's chemistry remains intact, but overall, The X-Files revival lacks the creative spark necessary to sustain the initial rush of nostalgia.

Critic Reviews for The X-Files: Season 10

All Critics (56)

Give six writer/directors six chances to do whatever they want with these iconic characters. It's a great idea for a series that can't just repeat itself as it will inherently feel nostalgic.

January 20, 2016 | Full Review…

After just one episode of the upcoming six, The X-Files feels like a faded relic, barely clinging to what once made it great.

October 12, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Regardless, hungry fans are probably thrilled to have the show back in whatever capacity. The smartest thing that this revival does is play to those fans, who will forgive its flaws, while limiting the run to a six-episode taste.

The third episode, not coincidentally the one in which the show rediscovers its dry sense of humor, finally gets on track.

Above-average special effects and the presence of two old and beloved friends - you know who! - more than make up for an eye-rolling new premise.

Top Critic

Don't be discouraged by the utter incoherence of the first hour: The spirit of the show is still here, waiting to be drawn out, and each installment is better than the last.
