Gillian Anderson is done with The X-Files after this season

Dean Haglund

In addition to Anderson exiting "The X-Files", she's also confirmed that she will no longer be appearing on the Starz series "American Gods" after playing a pivotal role in the first season of the show past year.

"The X-Files" star Gillian Anderson said that she made a decision to leave the Fox series because there are a lot of things she wants to do in her life and in her acting career.

During a panel organized as part of the Television Critics Association's (TCA) winter press tour on Wednesday, Anderson said that she won't return for any future seasons of the Fox series.

Reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Anderson said, "It's time for me to hang up Scully's hat".

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu to visit India next week
He said the bilateral commerce between the two countries stood at $5 billion in 2016-17 which did not include defence trade. In Mumbai, Netanyahu will meet Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.

As for American Gods, she said: "I'm not doing any more American Gods". "And they all went and did the show without me, so how do you like that?" It was dipping our toe back in again and just meeting up again and making the most of it and getting to play these wonderful characters again. "There's lots of things that I want to do in my life and in my career", Anderson told the audience, "and it's been an extraordinary opportunity and extraordinary character and I am hugely grateful". Mulder, however, may continue in his search; Duchovny said he was "good either way" if the show continued or ended.

The 49-year-old also revealed she is walking away from American Gods after just one season, following showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green out the door after they clashed with producers Fremantle over the season two budget. "Bryan [Fuller] and Michael Green aren't either, as has been announced", Anderson said. As for David Duchovny, who has played her partner Fox Mulder since the inception of the series, he seems to be on the fence on whether or not the show could survive without Anderson. With this section of the monster-of-the-week Federal Bureau of Investigation show in its second season (eleventh overall), one of its stars is done for good - and has opened up as to why.

"I've tried to say goodbye to Fox Mulder many times and I failed", he said. I'm feeling pretty p*ssed off, now that I remember, ' he joked. "I don't want to think about what the show means or the history or the legacy", he admitted.
