The X-Files miniseries has been a huge hit and with its finale coming up on 22 February, fans are wondering if they will get to see more of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully's spooky adventures in the future.
Fox's executives are definitely thinking about producing more episodes, as the network is promoting this Monday's finale as the season finale and not the series finale. Furthermore, Fox entertainment president David Madden has also revealed in an interview that they would love to do more episodes.
Madden told Variety: "We said before it aired that we would love to do more, and we are over the moon with the performance. So far, the response has been really encouraging."
Speaking about season 2, the executive added: "We haven't talked to the talent yet about season 2 in any more definitive way than we had prior to airing the show, but certainly, it seems like there's an audience responding to the show that would love to see more episodes."
Previously, actor David Duchovny also discussed about the possibility of returning for more episodes. He said: "I would never have gone and done another 22 episodes of X-Files, but we're going to do six — well, that's like doing a movie."
"That's like continuing the show in a way that we all can do at this point in our lives so that's how it all came about.... Six to me sounds very doable at any walk of my life. It's not a great hardship in terms of time. I would hope it will be successful, I would hope we could continue, but right now, I'm just looking at it as these six, and then we'll see what happens," the actor added.
The finale of the six-part series is titled My Struggle II, which promises a lot of drama, as the promo teases an alien spaceship, Mulder's confrontation with the Cigarette Smoking Man and a widespread epidemic.
According to the synopsis: "The investigations that Mulder and Scully previously began with conspiracy theorist and web-TV show host Tad O'Malley (guest star Joel McHale) seem to have awakened powerful enemies. A widespread panic begins as people all over the country suddenly start falling gravely ill, and Scully must look within to try and find a cure. Meanwhile, Mulder confronts the man whom he believes to be behind it all, but another figure from Mulder and Scully's past may prove to be the key to their salvation."
The X-Files finale airs on 22 February at 9pm EST.
