"The X-Files" six-episode miniseries is coming to an end this Monday on Fox. While fans have been enjoying the new episodes, many are wondering what's going to happen with the series next. Will the show return for another all new season? A third film? Or maybe even another small miniseries run. If the sci-fi show does get another reboot, will it be with Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson)? Or will the network decide to try a spinoff series with Agent Miller (Robbie Amell) and Agent Einstein (Lauren Ambrose)?
Agents Miller and Einstein, who are basically younger versions of Scully and Mulder, were introduced in episode 5. Miller, like Mulder, wants to believe in the paranormal and that there is something else out there. Einstein, on the other hand, is a medical doctor who is a skeptic, much like Scully. With the addition of these two characters, it's possible that they could at some point either return to the series, or even take the reigns from Mulder and Scully.
During an interview with TVLine at New York Comic-Con in October 2015, show creator Chris Carter neither confirmed nor denied that Amell and Ambrose could potentially get their own "X-Files" series in the future. Instead he said that their contracts were for the miniseries and thast he was "focused on doing the show with David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson]."
Miller and Einstein will both be back for the miniseries finale, titled "My Struggle II." Ambrose teased the finale during an interview with Entertainment Weekly and said fans can expect to see "global panic."
"They need to figure out how to solve a giant problem, and once again, I’m there to help. I’m there to help Mulder and Scully."
The fate of all four characters remains up in the air until the conclusion of "The X-Files" miniseries, which airs Monday, Feb. 22 on Fox at 8 p.m. EST. However, Carter revealed to International Business Times that there is likely to be more new "X-Files," but no "specific conversations" with the network has happened yet.
"The ratings have been good — I can’t imagine there won’t be more. Ratings are what it’s all about,” Carter dished.
