The X-Files revival has one episode left and then…
Well, that’s the question, isn’t it?
Creator Chris Carter has said that the series will end on a real cliff hanger: “Get ready for the finale. Put your seat belts on, because it’s a big one.”
And he then adds the body blow: “It wouldn’t be ‘The X-Files’ if it didn’t end on a cliffhanger.”
But don’t panic, Carter is confident the series won’t end this season: “We came back to do fresh, original material [and] the response has been very satisfying.
“The ratings have been good — I can’t imagine there won’t be more. Ratings are what it’s all about,” said Carter.
“But no specific conversations have been had. It was mentioned [by Fox executives] in passing to me, but it was tangential to another conversation.”
Now, we all would love for The X-Files to continue forever – espcially if there IS a cliffhanger but Fox co-Chairman and CEO Gary Newman has previously said that getting Duchovny and Anderson (Mulder and Scully) was a nightmare, scheduling wise.
Is this is a potential stumbling block for future intallments? Well, as Carter said, ratings are what it’s all about and money makes the world go round, so who knows…
