A hypothesis on the possible way of future evolution of the planetary ozone layer is reported. It is based on the assumption of the existence of the secular variation of the total ozone content (TOC) as well as on the results of approximation of one of the longest time series of TOC observations in Arose (Switzerland) and ozonometric observations in Tomsk. According to this hypothesis, in the late nineties and in the early 2000's it is expected the stabilization of TOC which then will change for a gradual growth in the Earth's atmosphere that contradicts the conclusions following from the "freon" hypothesis.
