"Six to me sounds very doable at any walk of my life. It's not a great hardship in terms of time. I would hope it will be successful, I would hope we could continue, but right now, I'm just looking at it, as these six, and then we'll see what happens.
I would never have gone and done another 22 episodes of X Files, but we're going to do six, well, that's like doing a movie. That's like continuing the show in a way that we all can do at this point in our lives so that's it all came about.
Television started to change in that now there are limited runs. I think it's the way the networks have to survive in the future. I think you can attract the talent you want by having a shorter season and you can tell more interesting stories."
