Following the show’s abrupt cancellation, Carter said: “It might have taken us 11 years to make 99 episodes, in my mind.” I wanted to do the Inferno, as I should say, all of Dante. Try to mimic the 99 cantos.It was a tough sell.It was eight characters in hell, basically.I think that’s the reason we parted ways. ” [12] He also cited creative differences with Amazon’s executives saying: “With” The After “I wanted to do Dante, I wanted to do the” Inferno “and it’s not a genre. If you do not know what you are doing, then you will not be able to do it. S ever seen before it’s frightening. And I can understand that. ” [13]

During The X-Files revival promotion, Carter said: “I think it was just a difference of opinion about the direction of the show. I can understand their reluctance, but I do not know what I am doing, , And I still think I had eight great episodes. ” [14]
