Gillian Anderson Responds to News of All-Male Writers Room for Next Season of ‘The X-Files’

In the entertainment industry, it seems that sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same! In the same summer where Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman became the highest-grossing live action film to be directed by a woman and Sofia Coppola became the second woman ever to win “Best Director” at Cannes Film Festival, The Washington Post just reported that the writers room for the upcoming season of Fox’s The X-Files consists entirely of male writers.

This isn’t the first time that the show has been associated with gender inequity. When The X-Files first returned to the airwaves in 2016, Gillian Anderson revealed that she had initially been offered half of what her male co-star, David Duchovny was offered to return to the series. Fortunately, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Anderson and Duchovny ultimately earned equal pay for the event series after concluding negotiations.  read more
