X-FILES SHOCKER

Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of Fox's The X-Files, says his UFO drama may go on next year without its two leads, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

"I think that there's a terrific opportunity to do it, particularly now that Robert Patrick is aboard," he told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, CA. "It's really just figuring out how to tell the stories, and who to tell the stories with. Neither David nor Gillian have contracts past this year.
