Back at New York Comic Con last year, Gillian Anderson revealed during The X-files panel that this season more than likely would be her last.
Anderson, spoke to TV Insider today and reminded the outlet that she’s “said from the beginning this is it for me. I was a bit surprised by people’s [shocked] reaction to my announcement…because my understanding was that this was a single season.”
The shaky 10th season ended with a biological threat to humanity, and Mulder at the brink of death. While tackling all that (and a UFO), The X-Files will also welcome back Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish), one of the Lone Gunmen, and Mulder’s half-brother Jeffrey Spender (Chris Owens). Season 11 premieres Wednesday, January 3 on Fox.
