Chris Carter Says THE X-FILES Is Coming Back For More Episodes…Eventually

Last night’s installment of The X-Files ended with a cliffhanger (you can read our recap here) that left the fate of its two lead agents and the entire human race up in the air before bringing the six-episode miniseries to a grim conclusion. But according to series creator Chris Carter, The X-Files won’t disappear for another 13-year hiatus.

“I can tell you, almost without a doubt, we will come back,” said Carter during an interview with The New York Times. “I don’t know how or when — Fox owns the show. But because the ratings were what they were, I think the show will come back one way or the other…It’s complicated. It’s really a matter of when the actors would be able to do it, when they’re available at the same time. We’d also need a schedule that would give us enough lead time to make it interesting. Nothing’s been written yet. I’ve written down a lot of ideas but there’s nothing even close to a script.”

Carter also indicated that the maddening cliffhanger was designed to ensure that fans demanded more X-Files.

“We’ve always ended with a cliffhanger,” noted Carter. “This isn’t a movie; it’s a TV series. Any resolution would have to lead to more stories to tell. If they feel cheated, they’re not familiar with how we’ve done the show. I think they’d feel more cheated if we resolved it and didn’t come back at all.”

If and when The X-Files returns, it’s not clear how many episodes it would run or if it would retain the mix of monster-of-the-week and mythology stories that led to some divisive responses from fans in the current batch of episodes.
