During the TCA gathering in Los Angeles this week, Fox big shot Sandy Grushow took questions regarding what lies ahead for THE X-FILES.
When asked about what would bring Chris Carter back for one more season, Grushow would only say, cryptically, "I'm not going to be too specific with you, but I will tell you to pay attention to Scully's baby."
Grushow adds that this plot point will be a "very important part of what's to come." Regarding Gillian Anderson, he says, "She will be with us for this year. Whether she continues on into the future, we don't know at this point. But we are certainly happy that she is, and excited about the plans that Chris has for her this year, and we'll see what happens after that."
