Ohh digitally animated Scully is altogether very long! The X-Files: Deep State is out Feb 6! @xfilesgame… https://t.co/8qkuI9Piu0
Anderson explained her reasoning behind her recent decision to quit 'The X Files' after its current 11th season.
Having played the character that established her career on and off for a quarter of a century, Gillian Anderson has revealed her reasoning behind her decision to call the current series of ‘The X Files’ her last.
The English-born American actress has played the role of Dana Scully in the sci-fi thriller series since 1993, opposite David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder. She elected to return to reprise that role in 2016 with Fox’s limited run revival series, but has apparently only opted to stay on for a second season because she was “curious”.
“Why? There’s lots of things I want to do in my life and in my career,” she explained to reporters at the Television Critics’ Association winter press tour this week about her decision to quit. “It’s been an extraordinary character, but there’s lots of things to do and I don’t want to be tied down doing one thing.”

The show will continue without the star.
Back in 2001, Neil Gaiman released one of his most celebrated novels of his career with 'American Gods', introducing some of the most intriguing and compelling characters to the world. When it was revealed that the story would finally be adapted for the small screen on Starz, fans couldn't have been more excited. When people like Gillian Anderson and Ian McShane were brought on board to star, the level of excitement only grew.

Towards the end of 2017, it was revealed that the show's first season showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green had departed the series completely, though they were thought to have finished their writing on the scripts for the upcoming batch of episodes. Now it's been reported that they're not the only major figures who have left the show.

Whether the show could survive without her is another topic altogether!
Gillian Anderson has confirmed that the upcoming new series of 'The X-Files' will be the final one she returns for, bringing her role as Dana Scully to an end when all is said and done on the new batch of episodes. Whether that means the series will close with the eleventh season however remains to be seen.
Gillian Anderson will leave 'X-Files' following season 11
10 new episodes make up the new season, that will see Scully continue on in her professional partnership with Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) in tracking down some of the strangest conspiracies, aliens and more. The formula is one that works and one that the series has stuck to throughout its run, all whilst doing its bit to reinvent the genre so that viewers don't find the episodes stale.

Filmmaker Gurinder Chada (Bend It Like Beckham) draws on her own family history to explore the events surrounding the 1947 independence and partition of India. The real history is far more complex and violent than any film could adequately capture, so Chadha relies on two parallel plots that touch on varied experiences. In the end, the film is lively and enjoyable, with a strong sense of humour and some romantic surges that help the story resonate.
As Britain plans to leave India after three centuries of colonial rule, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) arrives in Delhi as the last viceroy, accompanied by his wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson), who takes particular interest in the process, and their daughter Pamela (Lily Travers). Unlike previous rulers, they take a real interest in the local culture, so they know how difficult it will be to avoid bloodshed between clashing Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities. Meanwhile in their house, Hindu guard Jeet (Manish Dayal) is in love with Muslim maid Aalia (Huma Qureshi), wondering if they can to have a life together in a divided nation.
The romantic storyline is a nice counterbalance to the larger political machinations and violent cultural struggles. The way it highlights the issues is rather heavy-handed, but Dayal and Qureshi are charming enough to hold the audience's attention, and where they go isn't as obvious as it seems. Alongside them, Bonneville and Anderson sparkle with wit, stirring some comic relief into even the most intense negotiations. They also nicely play their characters as people of compassion and empathy, a nice contrast to the callous self-interested British diplomats who don't care who gets hurt in the fallout. Somewhere in between are well-meaning roles for acting icons Michael Gambon (as the chief of staff) and Simon Callow (as the man responsible for drawing the line between India and Pakistan).

Jamie Dornan will reprise his role as serial killer Paul Spector, with Gillian Anderson back as Superintendent Stella Gibson.
Filming on BBC drama ‘The Fall’ has begun in Belfast, with stars Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson confirmed as returning for a third series. Dornan will be back as serial killer Paul Spector, who was last seen laying wounded in the arms of Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) after being shot in the final episode of series two.
Jamie Dornan will be back as serial killer Paul Spector in series three of ‘The Fall’.
Show creator, Allan Cubitt, said he was "thrilled to have recently started filming the third instalment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death”. "Gillian and Jamie have lived and breathed those characters during that time and I've been incredibly well-served as both writer and director by their stellar performances”.
Fox has released a full-length trailer for the upcoming mini-series of ‘The X-Files’.
The new X-FILES trailer isn’t giving much away about the upcoming series but it certainly suggests they’ll be high drama with explosions, military involvement and some pretty intense exchanges between agents Mulder and Scully.

The actors will soon be reprising their ‘X-Files’ roles in a new Fox limited series.
‘X-Files’ fans got a special treat last night at David Duchovny's Cutting Room gig in New York, as the actor and now singer was joined onstage by his co-star Gillian Anderson. Anderson joined Duchovny for a rendition of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young classic 'Helpless’ taken from the group’s 1970 album Déjà Vu.
Gillian Anderson will soon return to TV screen as Agent Dana Scully.
The gig was in support of Duchovny’s debut album Hell Or Highwater, which he released yesterday. Early on in his set, Duchovny was also joined onstage by actress Madeleine Martin who played his daughter Becca on the Showtimes series ‘Californication’ from 2007 to 2014.
Mulder and Scully are on their way back, but what can we expect this time around.
Some fans were rejoicing, while others were a little more apprehensive when it was announced last month that 'The X-Files' would be returning for a six episode miniseries on Fox. But at a press call on Friday to discuss his new show 'Aquarius', David Duchovny seemed more that happy to answer any questions regarding the upcoming reboot and hopefully ease the fears of a few fans.
David Duchovny will be returning to Fox as Mulder in six new 'X-Files' episodes
When asked how easy it would be to step into Mulder’s shoes once again the actor said, "I don't know if it's easy yet until I do it But I am looking forward to it.” Duchovny also dished however that he had no hesitations about signing on for the reboot.
For a low-budget kids' movie, this British science-fiction adventure has an unusually sharp cast, decent effects and an energetic pace that helps to distract from the rather flimsy premise. So even if the story never quite builds a solid head of momentum, it holds the attention due to a dark-edged tone and some entertaining action sequences that give the terrific young actors a chance to shine.
It's set three years after robots invaded Earth, won the war in 11 days and locked all humans in their homes, using human collaborators to enforce this rule. In a seaside English town, the head collaborator is Smythe (Ben Kingsley), who spends much of his time pursuing hot single mother Kate (Gillian Anderson) and tormenting her teenage son Sean (Callan McAuliffe). Kate has taken in three orphaned kids: teen siblings Alexandra and Nathan (Ella Hunt and James Tarpey) and 10-year-old Connor (Milo Parker). And together these four young people figure out a way to short circuit their monitoring implants so they can leave their home. Sean is sure that his father (Steven Mackintosh) didn't die in the war, so he enlists the other three to help find him. And their search gets a boost when they stumble across a group of anarchic rebel veterans living the wild life in an abandoned hotel.
This partying hideout is a nicely raucous touch, even if its pungent innuendo essentially rules young children out of the audience. But this kind of blackly comical touch is more than welcome in a movie that's otherwise rather childish and earnest. Another nice touch is how the human collaborators are called the Volunteer Corps and identify themselves with Nazi-style armbands. And the robots' human-shaped mediator (Craig Garner) looks like a freaky demon-child. All of this helps overcome the film's strong sentimental streak, as well as some production values that are more in line with Doctor Who than a big-screen alien blockbuster.
