"If you could ask Chris Carter, legendary creator of The X-Files, one question - what would it be?".
This is what I put out there to you, dear reader - now here some answers, from the man himself.
Just as showrunner Chris Carter had warned it would, Gillian Anderson's exit from The X-Files after its 11th season has led to Fox confirming there are currently no plans to continue the series. But Anderson has weighed in with her own thoughts as to why The X-Files season 12 is a no go.
The X-Files season 11 did not start out well and I'm unhappy to report it didn't end well, either. "My Struggle IV" was mostly boring, but by the end it turned a nightmarishly awful mess that marked a downright tragic end to Gillian Anderson's time as Special Agent Dana Scully. But why anyone - actors, writers, or fans - would come back for more X-Files after last night's episode is beyond me.
This week, Gillian Anderson re-iterated a statement she'd already made clear: X-Files' new season would be her final outing as Dana Scully. But in the wake of Anderson's comments, X-Files creator Chris Carter has told fans and outlets that he still sees the potential for Scully's return... because he doesn't think there's an X-Files without her.
If the show does come back, the first episode had better just be Chris Carter apologising for that finale for an hour.
