Media black out: first 'The X-Files', now Gillian Anderson is leaving 'American Gods'
Gillian Anderson has already expressed that the current eleventh season of 'The X-Files' will be her last. (Considering that ratings for the first episode were considerably lower than those of last year's revival, the show may not be back again, anyway.)
Now she's dropped another bombshell- she's leaving her other hit sci-fi series, Starz' 'American Gods'. Though there was no direct quote, while discussing the new season of 'The X-Files' with the 'Los Angeles Times', Anderson admitted that she was exiting 'American Gods' because of the departure of the program's creators/showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green.
Fuller and Green reportedly walked away after financial and creative disputes with production company FremantleMedia in November. In December, fellow cast member Kristin Chenoweth, who had signed on after having worked with Fuller on the series 'Pushing Daisies', also expressed uncertainty about returning.
