Gillian Anderson won’t be back after X-Files’ 11th season
Gillian Anderson plans to walk away from The X-Files after the upcoming 11th season.
The actress, who plays Agent Dana Scully on the sci-fi show, attended New York Comic-Con on Sunday, and told fans she won’t be back for anymore supernatural adventures.
“I think this will be it for me,” she responded when one fan asked if there would be a 12th season of the show.
Anderson also revealed she only agreed to return for the 10th season revival because she wanted closure for her character: “I felt like it wasn’t over,” she said. “It didn’t feel like we necessarily (delivered) everything the fans were expecting of us last time.”
And she confessed she hadn’t planned to return for an 11th season, adding, “I thought I was done.”
The X-Files’ 11th season will premiere in January.
