Gillian Anderson may be retiring Dana Scully once and for all, but she’s already got her next series role lined up. Deadline reports that Anderson will star as a sex therapist in the new Netflix show Sex Education. Asa Butterfield will star as her son, an awkward high-school boy who decides to follow in his mother’s footsteps and sets up an unsanctioned clinic at school to help fellow students address their issues. Anderson previously played a therapist on the show Hannibal, but hopefully none of her patients are serial killers this time around.
