Chris Carter remains defiant that the cancellation of The X-Files isn’t the end of the series as he sees it.
For me, it’s not an ending. It is, in a way, a beginning. So I don’t see it necessarily as a conclusion.
As for whether he can envision a spinoff that centers on Jackson:
[Laughs] No. People have asked me that question and right now, he is a 17-year-old kid dealing with the strangeness of his life and the idea that he would find any proscribed or limiting category in life is not unimaginable.
Will The X-Files remain in the cancellation reaper’s clutches, or is a 12th season revival or reboot really out there without Gillian Anderson/Scully?
Stay tuned as we monitor the cancellation escape hatch for any signs of life…
