After the premiere of the first episode “My Struggle” at MIPCOM (Cannes), Chris Carter talked about the revival series. About the length (six episodes), The X-Files creator revealed that “there was a chance we were going to make seven episodes” – Dean Haglund mentioned this possibility some time ago. Regarding the structure, Carter stated: “we begin with a mythology episode, we end with a mythology episode, and the episodes in between are standalone episodes”. “I love telling X-Files stories. The truth is out there! If we satisfy audience expectations, certainly there’s an opportunity”, Carted said about the future of The X-Files.
