Is there going to be an eleventh season of “The X-Files,” even one that lasts for another six episodes? Based on some of what we’re hearing right now, we certainly feel confident and then some that Mulder and Scully will return at some point.
In discussing the show’s future further in a chat with TVLine, creator Chris Carter made it clear that through some discussions, there will probably be a way in which to bring it back for some more stories:
“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.”
Now, we have to pose another interesting question: Could Carter return to the show? It feels logical to say yes, but ironically the two weakest episodes of the season were the ones he write in the premiere and the finale. They were too cluttered for their own good, and you can make a case for there needing to be a new creative voice. However, at the same time Carter’s a smart enough guy that we think he could figure out a way to listen to criticism and find a way to step up his own contributions in the future. The biggest problem with them was merely that he threw everything and the kitchen sink at the show.
