X-FilesThe truth is still out there — but will "X-Files" fans ever find it?

Fox's six-episode revival of the sci-fi series ended on a tremendous cliffhanger, begging the question of whether the show will go on. The answer: It might.

"There's no negotiations, but I had a conversation with [Fox president] Dana Walden today," Carter told E! News. "They said they're certainly up for more if we can figure out how to get it done."

The revival has been a ratings success, but booking stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny might prove difficult. Though they've both expressed interest in continuing on, as Carter told The Hollywood Reporter, "The last negotiations took about five months, so it could be a while before we figure out how to do this."

The finale ended — MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD — with Mulder dying, Scully racing to save him and the rest of the world, and a UFO showing up over Washington, D.C. in the last shot. Carter assures fans that he knows what happens next.

"'The X-Files' traditionally ended with a cliffhanger, and we didn't want to do anything different," he said. "This just happens to be a very big cliffhanger. I have an idea of where the story goes."
