Monday’s X-Files finale left off on somewhat of a cliffhanger. Although, it did tie up most of the issues raised in the first five episodes, a new series of questions arose in the season finale. In an interview with THR, series creator Chris Carter opened up about the fate of the series as well as the possibility of a new film. “They’re going to ask for more,” Carter explained of whether or not Fox is open to another season. “The ratings were very good. They were happy with the show. I talked to Dana Walden today. She said they’d very much like more, but nothing’s being negotiated yet.”
As for whether or not the leads are down for another season, Carter said: “I have been speaking with David pretty regularly. I think he’s game. I have spoken to Gillian less frequently, but I believe she would be game. So I’m just working around their busy schedules. They both have families. It’s another practical matter.”
When the outlet mentioned the possibility of another feature film, Carter explained: “They’re two different animals. And the second movie, we tried to do something more akin to the television show. I think if we had to do another movie, it would have to be another tentpole movie—more in keeping with what we did with the first. I think there are a lot more X-Files to tell, certainly given this cliffhanger, so I think it opens up both the TV and movie parts of the franchise.”
