For the last 15 years, the mystery surrounding William has haunted "The X-Files", Scully and Mulder... and the fandom. Hundreds of theories have spawned, many plagued with questions that we are excited to ask... and maybe a little scared too.

So... Who is he? We might just find out this Wednesday in an episode written and directed by James Wong.

"A pair of teenage girls attack one another, each believing the other to be a monster, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) find that their investigation could possibly lead back to their long-lost son, William."

“Ghouli” airs this Wednesday, Jan. 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), on FOX. Watch this behind the scenes video on the mystery of William, and check out the screen caps below. Spoilers ahead.

If you're dying to know how Season 11 is going to end, that wait just got a little longer. FOX has confirmed the air dates for the rest of Season 11 and the series will take a 2 week break in February due to the Winter Olympics.

"Ghouli" airs on January 31st, followed by "Kitten" on February 7th. We'll skip February 14th and 21st with Episode 7 set to air on February 28th. Episode 8 will air March 7th, Episode 9 on March 14th, and the finale Episode 10 will air on March 21st. 

So mark your calendars, request days off to recover, whatever you need to do! We've updated our watch and rewatch calendar here and will add episode names and hashtags as soon as we get those confirmed.

Tonight marks four weeks into the eleventh season of The X-Files, and while we've seen some of what's to come each week, we've yet to get a glimpse of what the second half of the season holds. That changes today with FOX's mid-season trailer. There's a lot happening in the trailer below, so let's discuss some of the final episodes. You'll also find about 150 screen caps at the bottom of the article if you care to investigate. 


David Duchovny called into the Kevin and Bean Show on KROQ FM radio this morning and brought the laughs with him. The segment kicks off with talk about the upcoming release of David's new album "Any Third Thought" but quickly turned to discussion of Season 11.

The hosts remarked that the promos for "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat" make the episode look like "one of the craziest" the show has ever done. David said that was a "fair assessment" and shared a conversation he'd had with Gillian Anderson about the episode. "When we were shooting it, Gillian and I were talking and we were saying this could be a great final X-File. If this could be the last one we ever did this sums up so much about the show and about the characters and about life in general." 

They also touched on how The X-Files fits into the current political and media landscape, and joked about the bombshell dropped at the end of "My Struggle III." When asked if it was fun to be back for Season 11, David said "It was a lot of fun. The season that we did before, I guess called Season 10, we only did 6 episodes and it was hard to kind of, find the groove 'cause it had been so long since we did it, first of all. And it seemed like by the time we found the groove we were ending up. And this time we kind of got the groove earlier and had longer to stay in the groove. I said groove a lot."

The entire interview is a lot of fun and well worth a listen. Head here to listen, David's part of the episode starts at 1:18:03.
