Gillian Anderson Talks Scully and Mulder's Estranged Relationship: That 'Tension' Always Drove The X-Files

The truth about Dana Scully and Fox Mulder's relationship is out there – but viewers will have to wait until the X-Files miniseries premieres Sunday night to find out what's driven a wedge between the FBI's spooky duo.
It took seven seasons and two movies for Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's characters to move beyond a platonic partnership. When the new show picks up, Scully and Mulder aren't together anymore, though their chemistry crackles as hot as ever.
"In the first episode, they're no longer a couple. They're living apart. They have not had that much contact with each other," Anderson, 47, tells PEOPLE. "Obviously there is a child between them, and so they're always going to be connected in that way. But it feels a little estranged at the very beginning, which is kind of how it always was. It was this tension between the two of them which is part of what worked with the series and which drove the series, so it's actually an interesting way I think for us to begin again."

In character as their iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully during Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, the stars got physical to the sounds of "Hootie and the Blowfish" while their new partner (Kimmel) looked on after encouraging them to consummate the relationship.
"You two should have sex already, it's been 23 years," Kimmel joked of the infamously are-they-or-aren't-they investigators, who are hitting the small screen together again, in Fox's new miniseries reboot.
