Gillian Anderson is done with The X-Files after this season

Gillian Anderson is done with The X-Files after this season

Carter has mentioned in interviews that he wouldn't want to do more X-Files without Anderson.

As for X-Files, "I arrived at the decision before we did the previous six, but I was really curious".

Speaking at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the long-time actress confirmed that she is "finished" with the show after this season. Anderson's exit follows the departure of showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, who left the show six weeks ago due to creative differences with Fremantle Media regarding the second season. "And it's time for me to hang up Scully's hat".

Anderson said she didn't feel like the last six episodes repped the proper means to go out.

"Why? There's lots of things I want to do in my life and in my career", she replied. 'I felt that the previous six was going to be it. But he has said that "the show has always been Mulder and Scully, so the idea of doing the show without her isn't something I've ever had to consider", although he has also said he believed there are more stories to tell.

"I've tried to say goodbye to Fox Mulder many times and I failed. I'm feeling pretty pissed off, now that I remember", Duchovny joked. "When I was asked to do another season, I did". Freeing up Anderson's schedule will allow her to do more roles, but it will also breathe life into her public perception that has, since 1993, involved Dana Scully.

The X-Files has had its ups and downs in quality over the years, from season to season, and even within the seasons, depending on the individual episode's focus.

"It wasn't suggested that now is a new series, but I'm serious", said Anderson. "To have the opportunity to play somebody as iconic a character as Scully and a part of this duo is very special indeed". "You may need to talk to me in a few years about that once I finally shut the door".
