‘X-Files’ creator won’t return without Gillian Anderson

There’s no “X-Files” without Scully.

Show creator Chris Carter responded to Gillian Anderson’s threats to quit after the 11th season, which premiered Wednesday night.

“For me, ‘The X-Files’ is Mulder and Scully,” Carter told Collider.

“I think if it were without Scully, I wouldn’t do it. That’s not my ‘X-Files.’”

Gillian Anderson won’t return to ‘X-Files’ after season 11

Anderson, who plays Dana Scully in the sci-fi show against David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder, recently confirmed she won’t return after the current season.

“I’ve said from the beginning this is it for me,” she told TV Guide.

“The X-Files” was brought back for a six-episode season last year after initially ending in 2002, then renewed for an 11th season.

The future of the show is still unknown.

“For me, ‘The X-Files’ can go on, indefinitely,” Carter told Collider.

“It’s really how long Mulder and Scully, and David and Gillian, want to do the show.”
