The X-Files has come and gone - for now. The revival, however, outperformed all expectations, generating more fan interest, media interest, and turning in better numbers that most could have ever dreamed of. The premiere event was watched by over fifty million people worldwide. The show seemed to pick up in the ratings right where it left off, despite the decline in viewership suffered by most major networks in the wake of the expanded cable universe. Creatively, well, the season was a mixed bag. Six episodes meant that the show did not have time to find its footing, and there was little room for error. Mulder And Scully Meet the Were-Monster became an instant classic, yet the attempt to steer the mythology of the show in yet another new direction was puzzling, when most fans were looking for closure to that storyline. There were also plenty of open endings, pretty much an X-Files trademark at this point. Yet one thing is certain: the show will continue, in some form. Just what that continuation looks like, however, is up for debate. There have been talks of additional seasons, a larger episode order, another feature film - lots of options, but little talk of their merits. With that in mind let's examine 10 possible ways The X-Files could return!
