It’s hard to believe that The X-Files revival is already over. It’s an understatement to say that fans want more. The finale ended in a real cliffhanger, with Mulder and much of the world sick or dying thanks to the Smoking Man. After the finale fans took to social media with an over whelming cry for a new season.
Series creator Chris Carter is willing to do another season and Fox is interested in seeing that happen. The main issue is working around everyone’s schedule.
“They’re going to ask for more. The ratings were very good. They were happy with the show.” Carter told THR. “I talked to Dana Walden today. She said they’d very much like more, but nothing’s negotiated yet.” Carter continued elaborating on his conversation with Walden. “It was casual, we like the way it worked out. So there’s an appetite for more in the future, it’s just a matter of figuring out how to get it done. The last negotiations took about five months, so it could be a while before we figure out how to do this.”
As for his discussion with The X-Files’ stars, “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.”
Carter also spoke about there possibly being a new X-Files film in the future. It sounds to me like we haven’t seen the last of The X-Files, and as a fan myself, that makes me very happy. We could all use more Mulder and Scully in our lives.
