Gillian Anderson is speaking out after reports emerged that the The X-Fileswriters room will be all-male for the upcoming season of the reboot, set to air in 2018.
“And 2 out of 207 eps directed by women. I too look forward to the day when the numbers are different. #TheFutureisFemale,” Gillian, who has starred on the show since the beginning in the role of Special Agent Scully.
The ten episode order will be written by returning writers Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong, in addition to some new (male) faces.
This is not the first time inequality has happened behind-the-scenes at The X-Files. Gillian also revealed that she was offered half the pay as her co-star David Duchovny for the revival.
