Gillian AndersonGillian Anderson is making a grand return to television.

The X-Files actress' big comeback will see her play a therapist in Bryan Fuller's serial killer thriller Hannibal, based on Thomas Harris' novels about psychiatrist turned flesh-eater Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

Bryan - who is writing and producing the series - commented, "Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter's personal psychiatrist. Her intelligence and sophistication, not to mention her pedigree of ground-breaking TV, make her the perfect actress to match wits and psychological manipulations with one of the greatest villains of pop culture. I couldn't be more excited."

The series has already presented admirable new versions of Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey as well as Miss Austen Regrets, a film biography that tells the story of Jane Austen’s lost loves and why she herself, never married.
