Fans of “The X-Files” have just a few more days to revisit the science-fiction drama before it leaves Netflix on April 1. The series, which aired on Fox for nine seasons (1993 to 2002) and spawned two hit feature films and a six-episode limited series in 2016, remains hugely popular with television viewers and critics, and made household names of stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

“The X-Files,” created by Chris Carter, focuses on FBI Agents Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) as they attempt to solve cases that may have connections to paranormal activity. Mulder believes in this existence of extraterrestrials, which often puts him at odds with the skeptical Scully. Over the course of the series, they become entangled with a shadow government agency, The Syndicate, led by a mysterious figure known as the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis), that seeks to cover up the existence of aliens on Earth.
The series earned 62 Emmy nominations over the course of its run and won 16 trophies, including Best Drama Actress for Anderson (1997), Best Drama Writing for Darin Morgan (1996), and Drama Guest Actor for Peter Boyle (1996). The show was named Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes three times (1994, 1996, 1997) and both Duchovny and Anderson won in the lead acting categories in 1996. Anderson also won the Drama Actress prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 1995 and 1996.
