Gillian Anderson won’t return to ‘X-Files’ after season 11


The truth is out there, but Scully isn’t.

Gillian Anderson confirmed that she won’t return to “X-Files” if the show is picked up for another season.

“I’ve said from the beginning this is it for me,” she told TV Guide.

The sci-fi show, which stars Anderson as Dana Scully and David Duchovny as Fox Mulder, was revived in 2016 for a 10th season.

The original run racked up 62 Emmy nominations over nine seasons, as well as 12 Golden Globe nominations and 14 SAG nominations.

Fox hasn’t announced a decision as to whether the show will continue on past the 11th season, but creator Chris Carter told TV Guide that “there are a lot more ‘X-Files’ stories to tell.”

“Whether we get to tell them is a question mark.”

“The X-Files” returns tonight.
