Wait, Gillian Anderson has confirmed a certain big part of The X-Files mythology will NOT be in the new series?

Well, this is interesting… there’s certain things that go together: snad and sea, sugar and spice, tea and milk… and The X-Files and aliens.

Although it looks like this new series will be missing that part if Scully herself, Gillian Anderson is to be believed.

Talking to The Sun newspaper, the actress was asked about the appearance of little green men in 2016 and she said: “Will there be aliens in it? No, no aliens this year, sorry. It will be scary. I hope it will be good.”

It’s not all bat though as she added: “There’ll be some laughs and I think overall, even though I haven’t seen any of it, I’m most pleased with the fact it feels like what we used to deliver.”

Does the absence of aliens taint the anticipation at all? Let us know if this is inconsequential or a game changer.

The X-Files returns in January with Anderson, David Duchovny,  Mitch Pileggi’s  Skinner, Joel McHale and others.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….

    Been a long time coming and can’t wait. Aliens were not in all the x files episodes. A large percentage were all manner of creatures and other phenomena. I for one am pleased the aliens will take a back seat, as the more interesting episodes did not feature them.

      We agree, it was just strange because the alien aspect was always in the background – we were sure one ep at least would be geared at that. Still giddy though
