The X-Files Season 11 premieres on Fox in 2018.

Duchovny is reported to have said it would be "good either way" if The X-Files, which sees Mulder and Scully investigate paranormal events and UFOs, continued without Anderson for another season.

"When we first started The X-Files, there was no such thing as a traditional writers room that we understand as it exists now, and I think in this particular 10 episodes we tried to include things we've done recently in new shows", Wong said.

"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", she said (via Deadline). Now, she has opened up about her reasons, speaking at the TCA press tour on Wednesday (January 10).

Anderson also addressed the future of her role in Amazon's American Gods - whose showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green quit after season one - saying that she would not be returning for the second season. "I have so much respect for these guys", she said of her colleagues, "but I'm finished and thats the end of that..."

Health department offers free flu vaccine - while supplies last
However, some have chronic health problems and the flu can lead to complications ranging from moderate to life-threatening. Ruth Gratton, manager of infectious diseases at the health unit, said that number is not unusual for this time of year.

As for Anderson's co-star David Duchovny, the actor can't exactly say whether Season 11 is going to be his last.

The original series ran from 1993-2002, and two feature films were released in 1998 and 2008.

While Chris Carter has stated he won't do more X-Files without Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny wasn't as concrete as he told reporters if Carter chose to do more episodes or not, he would be "good either way". Anderson said that she originally meant to sign on for the six-episode revival in 2017. "And they all went and did the show without me, so how do you like that? I'm feeling pretty pissed off now that I remember!" While that's not really any worse than most of the other shows on Fox we have to believe (slight X-Files nod intended) that this is a show they were expecting more out of given its fame and pedigree. Add to that, FOX is still undergoing an upheaval after the majority of the company was sold to Disney with that deal still facing approval over the next 12 to 18 months.
