Over the years, its following grew until it eventually became a cult favorite. Its passionate fanbase allowed the show to explore different topics, conspiracy theories, and other issues that involved the United States government and extraterrestrials.
#3 IN REAL LIFE, DUCHOVNY IS THE SKEPTIC.
Anderson’s character Scully was a skeptic, while Duchovny’s Mulder is a believer. In real life, however, it is the actor who is the skeptic. When interviewed on The Late Late Show With James Corden, Duchovny said that his fan mail had letters from people who told stories about alien abduction and this made him sad. “I thought that these people had issues that they had to deal with.” In Mulder’s office, there is a poster that says “I Want to Believe.”
The original version of the poster was supposedly bought in 1992. Over the years or seasons Mulder would replace the posters with different ones, but always with the same text.
#4 THE MAIN INSPIRATION FOR THE X-FILES WAS A REPORT THAT CLAIMED THERE ARE OVER THREE MILLION CASES OF ALIEN ABDUCTIONS.
Carter said that after reading a report revealing stories of people who were abducted by aliens, he thought of making the show. According to the report, the number of people who claimed to have been kidnapped by aliens totaled to more or less 3.7 million.

#5 DID YOU KNOW THAT THE CREATOR OF THE X FILES TV SHOW WAS CALLED CHRIS CARTER AND THAT HE WORKED FOR A SURFING MAGAZINE.
|Chris Carter the creator of The X Files TV Show about the Alien and UFO phenomenon which premiered on the 10th of September 1993 and lasted until the 19th of May, 2002.|
#5.2 Carter graduated with a degree in journalism from California State University, Long Beach before spending thirteen years working for Surfing Magazine.
#5.3 After beginning his television career working on television films for Walt Disney Studios, Carter rose to fame in the early 1990s after creating the science fiction-supernatural television series The X-Files for the Fox network. The X-Files earned high viewership ratings, and led to Carter's being able to negotiate the creation of future series.
#5.4 Carter has his own television production company, Ten Thirteen Productions, wherein he went on to create three more series for the network;
Millennium, a doomsday-themed series which met with critical approval and low viewer numbers;
Harsh Realm, which was canceled after three episodes had aired;
The Lone Gunmen, a spin-off of The X-Files which lasted for a single season.
Carter's film roles include writing both of The X-Files' cinematic spin-offs—1998's successful The X-Files and the poorly received 2008 follow-up The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the latter of which he also directed—while his television credits have earned him several accolades including eight Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
The Amazon Studios television series "The After" was his most recent series.
