Gillian Anderson Confirms She's Leaving 'The X-Files'

Gillian Anderson has confirmed she's leaving after this season of 'The X-Files' revival.

"It's time for me to hang up Scully's hat. It just is," Anderson said at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour.

"I'm finished, and that's the end of that."

Fox has said it would be difficult to imagine the series continuing without Anderson, who plays FBI agent Dana Scully.

However, co-star David Duchovny, who plays Agent Fox Mulder, didn't shut the door on more episodes.

"I've tried to say goodbye to Fox Mulder many times and I failed. And they all went and did the show without me, so how do you like that?," Duchovny joked. "I'm feeling pretty pissed off, now that I remember."

Duchovny left the show as a full-time cast member after its seventh season before returning for the revival.

'X-Files' creator Chris Carter has previously said: "For me, 'The X-Files' is Mulder and Scully. I think if it were without Scully, I wouldn't do it. That's not my X-Files."
