Are Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny dating? Fans have been wondering about this for years because their X-Files characters, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, share so much chemistry onscreen. Gillian Anderson has a reported smoldering sexuality and David Duchovny is a sex addict. It seems like the two would be the ideal match. Gillian could be the one to make David settle down for life.
Deadline has reported that The X-Files is returning for the 2017-18 season. This comes over three years later than the last revival. Fox announced last month that a 10-episode run of the Gillian Anderson David Duchovny series will start production this summer. Fans will be looking forward to seeing the sightings of the two interacting on set.
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said Fox president David Madden. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.”
David Duchovny will be reprising his role as Agent Mulder. Meanwhile, Gillian Anderson has been busy acting. She is starring in the first season of Starz’s April 30 debut of American Gods.
The original X-Files TV show ran from 1993 to 2002. Ever since then, there have been rumors of a romantic relationship between Gillian and David. Both stars are now unmarried, however, Gillian has a long-time partner with whom she has two children. That won’t stop the fans from shipping them and exploring their off-screen chemistry.
Last year, Gillian Anderson addressed their relationship with David Duchovny in an interview with People. She said that they share an “adult friendship” that has “kinetic energy.”
“People know we are good friends now and that we’ve found our way into an adult friendship,” she said. “But there is something that will always remain between us, a kinetic energy that is tangible when you see us in a room together.”
When Anderson was asked about her dating life in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, she said she has no interest in married men or younger men. She also kept quiet about her relationship with her boyfriend. Duchovny has also addressed the rumors in his 2015 interview with TV Line.
“The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird,” he said. “It’s never happened, it’s not going to happen, we’re friends. I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but no, it’s not gonna happen. It hasn’t happened.”
