mdf30532.jpg (21433 bytes)HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - ``X'' still marks the spot for Lucy Lawless, whose hit series ``Xena: Warrior Princess'' ended its run this summer.

The actress has now signed on for a multi-episode gig on the upcoming season of ``The X-Files.'' She is set to appear on the show's first two episodes. There's a chance she could do more episodes, though nothing's been decided yet.

The show's season premiere is Nov. 4. Details regarding the Lawless character are being kept under wraps.

``We're thrilled to have an opportunity to work with Lucy, whose work we've admired for a long time,'' said ``X-Files'' executive producer Frank Spotnitz. ``We think we've found an interesting and unexpected way to have her join the family.''
