The X-Files has come to yet another end, but don’t let Gillian Anderson’s departure fool you – Chris Carter fully intends to continue Scully’s story. The showrunner reveals what’s next for the franchise – even continuing at Disney if necessary – and which characters survived “My Struggle IV.”
The first X-Files revival had fans questioning the series’ role in modern times, to say nothing of the poorly-received return this past week. Star Gillian Anderson also suggested that Season 11 might be her last, and now both FOX and creator Chris Carter seem to be jumping ship without Scully at the helm.
The X-Files have officially re-opened and the story remains as crazy as ever. Now that Wednesday’s Season 11 premiere thoroughly reversed the 2016 finale and dropped one whopper of a twist about Scully and the Smoking Man, Chris Carter tells angry fans that they’d always intended as much.
