“It’s time for me to hang up Scully’s hat. It just is. I’m finished and that’s the end of that,” she said. She added that she originally only intended to sign on for the six-episode revival in 2017, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I arrived at the decision before we did the previous six, but I was really curious. I felt that the previous six was going to be it. It was dipping our toe back in again…and getting to play these wonderful characters again. I think as [series creator] Chris [Carter] has said himself that short stack of episodes felt like we were leaning how to walk again and that this season of 10 feels like the pace is up and we’re running.”

“I wouldn’t necessarily have been happy if those six were how we said goodbye,” she added.

“There’s lots of things that I want to do in my life and in my career and it’s been an extraordinary opportunity and extraordinary character and I am hugely grateful.”

The show’s 11th season premiered on January 3.

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?
