X-Files creator Chris Carter has indicated that the series may end at the end of the current season in May.
In an interview with TV Guide magazine, Carter said, "May's two-hour season finale will be a cliffhanger either for next season, if we return, or for the movie." Carter has said previously that a second X-Files theatrical film will be produced and that David Duchovny, who plays Mulder, is committed to star in it with Gillian Anderson. (Duchovny has announced that he will leave the TV series at the end of this season.)
