Gillian Anderson is one busy lady.

Gillian Anderson has a couple of huge projects coming up for fans to enjoy!

Of most importance, Gillian Anderson will be returning, with David Duchovny, to Fox for a revival of the incredibly popular show, The X-Files.

In an annoucement, Fox execs revealed, "The next mind-bending chapter of The X-Files debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC Championship game, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT)."

The statement continued, "The thrilling, six-episode event series, helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter and starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history."

So exciting!

In addition to the long-awaited X-Files continuation, Gillian Anderson will be featured on Hannibal's upcoming season as the "bride of Hannibal", Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier.

Hannibal, besides bringing on Gillian Anderson, stars Hugh Dancy as criminal profiler Will Graham. Graham has the ability to see into the mind of serial killers.

Mads Mikkelsen stars as a super creepy Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Lecter is psychiatrist who is helping with the cases. He is also a serial killer.

So awesome.

With the addition of Gillian Anderson as Hannibal's love, I just don't know if this show could possibly get any better.

And Gillian Anderson's return as Dana Scully is just too much.

What do you think about Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's return to The X-Files? Will you be watching?
