The X-Files Season 11 May Not Be Too Far Off

The recent season finale of The X-Files left a lot of fans worried that the series would end up continuing without their favorite agents, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). When the executives at Fox asked show-creator Chris Carter if he’d “ever thought of doing episodes without Mulder and Scully”, he had this to say, as he told IGN: “Well, that’s an interesting idea, I’d never considered that… and I don’t think I would ever...
