He told THR:
It is out of my hands. I have to wait for a lot of things that have nothing to do with storytelling and they have to do with a corporate story now being told [as Fox’s sale to Disney awaits regulatory hurdles].
You look at any long-lived franchise, and there are endless possibilities. There are prequels, there are other ways to approach a series like The X-Files.
In a message to the show’s fans, Carter insists he has more stories to tell:
I think X-Files fans, the hardcore fans, [know] never say die. This series, when it ended in 2002, there was the possibility of another movie, which we gave them. That the television series would come back 13-14 years later [after the television finale], tells you there are stories. And I know this is true, because I have stories to tell; there are more files in those drawers.
Are you disappointed with the cancellation of The X-Files? What did you think of the series finale? Hoping for a future revival without Scully? Stay tuned…
