The X-Files aired the finale for the mini-series revival on FOX last night, and the finale ended with Mulder’s life in the balance and a huge cliffhanger. Is there a season 11 already in the works for The X-Files?
Chris Carter spoke about the cliffhanger ending and the possibility of another season of The X-Files after the episode aired, and there is a chance that fans of the series could see another season pop up on FOX.
In an interview with TV Insider, Carter said the following about the chances of another season:
“I know where this goes in my mind. And so, it wasn’t just a cliffhanger without a clear idea of where we go. That said, even though I had a conversation with [Fox boss] Dana Walden today, talking about doing more episodes, I think the question is how to get it done.”
Carter has always expressed an interest to continue the franchise on FOX, but it has always been an issue of scheduling for David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
The series introduced new characters that could carry the story forward, but that would be an entirely different series.
Carter teased more about the possibility of another season to TV Line:
“I can tell you this: Fox owns this show. I can’t imagine, with the ratings that we’ve got and the way we ended this season, that there won’t be more X-Files. They will find a way to get that done. Because I spoke about it briefly with [Fox CEO] Dana Walden today, so there’s an appetite there and… a chance certainly to find how we’re gonna get ourselves off this precipice.”
