What's The Future of 'The X-Files' After the 2018 Season?

Fox’s The X-Files returns tonight (January 3) with 10 new episodes, marking 25 years since the series premiere in 1993.

Season 11 kicks off with Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) realizing that there are others looking for their long-lost son William.

“I’m always thinking that this could be it,” creator Chris Carter told Collider. “I don’t know what the future holds. While I try to do my best, and we did well the last time out, this time out could be different. For me, The X-Files can go on, indefinitely. It’s really how long Mulder and Scully, and David and Gillian want to do the show.”

So, would Chris consider doing another season without Gillian, now that she has announced that season 11 will be her last?

Gillian Anderson Says She's Done with 'The X-Files' After Season 11: 'This Will Be it for Me'

Gillian Anderson has announced that season 11 of The X-Files will be her last one.

The 49-year-old actress, who has been playing Dana Scully on and off since the show debuted on Fox in 1993, told press at 2017 New York Comic Con on Sunday (October 8) that she was probably done with the character/series after the upcoming season, the second season in the revival.

“No, no, I think this will be it for me,” Gillian expressed while sitting alongside co-stars David Duchovny and Mitch Pileggi, as well as creator Chris Carter.

“Because it felt like it wasn’t over,” Gillian added about doing season eleven (via ScreenRant). “It didn’t feel like we necessarily deliver everything the fans were expecting of us last time, and so it was that.”
