The X-Files Episode Order

What’s on The X-Files Episode Order?

The X-Files episode order includes all nine original seasons of The X-Files, as well as its continuing series, the films, and the spin-off series: Millenium and The Lone Gunmen. This timeline does not include any of the books or comics based on the series. Though some of the comics were heralded as canon when they were first released, Chris Carter has stated that the new revival series will not follow that storyline. However, if you want to see a timeline that includes all of the comics anyway, check out this site. Otherwise, this chronological list only focuses on the on-screen canon, aka the shows and the films.
