Having previously stated that there’s no future without Anderson’s Dana Scully, Carter has now hinted at a possible reboot of the series without Anderson, per Digital Spy:
“I don’t know. I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without. I’m sorry to see her go, I’ve never actually considered doing this show without her, so is this the end?
It’s the end of something, I don’t know if it’s the beginning of something new. But certainly we will have to all put our heads together and figure out where to go from here.”
On what the upcoming series finale has in store:
“It’s a culmination of the ten episodes and it’s a culmination of a storyline. I can tell you that it involves their son, who they’ve always considered to be their son, revelations there. It will certainly be looked upon as a cliffhanger of sorts, but also an episode that answers so many questions.”
Where do you stand: should The X-Files resurrect in future years without Scully, or should the story end for good with Season 11?
