The X-Files television program created by Chris Carter aired on the Fox Television Network from September 10, 1993 to May 19, 2002. The
series followed FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as they investigated unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena that
became marginalized and referred to as "x-files." The success of the television program led to two motion pictures, the 1998
The X-Files: Fight the Future and the 2008 The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the latter playing on the famous series slogan coined by Fox Mulder. The program's end in 2002 made it, at the time, the
longest running science fiction series in United States television broadcasting history.
