One of the most popular 20th Television series “The X-Files” will be coming to Disney+ in UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand when the new general entertainment brand “Star” is added on Tuesday 23rd 2021.
The exploits of FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully who investigate X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. Mulder believes in the existence of aliens and the paranormal while Scully, a skeptic, is assigned to make scientific analyses of Mulder’s discoveries that debunk Mulder’s work and thus return him to mainstream cases.
Over the course of its original nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award.
There are 218 episodes, from across 11 seasons. The show ran from 1993 through to 2002 and it was revived in 2016, where it ran for another two years.
All 11 seasons will be available in Australia and New Zealand, while seasons 1 to 9 will be available in the UK and Ireland due to pre-existing streaming contracts. It’s not clear how many seasons will be released in Canada.
The two spin-off movies, “X-Files: The Movie” and “The X-Files: I Want To Believe” will also be coming for the launch in the UK, Ireland and Canada. While Australia and New Zealand are getting just the first movie.
