Mitch Pileggi confirmed for The X Files return

There have been rumours that Mitch Pileggi would be return to The X Files for a while, with David Duchovny accidentally confirming that Pileggi and William B. Davis - aka The Cigarette Smoking Man - would be back. But now the official confirmation has been given, with Pileggi taking to Twitter to announce his return.


After Duchovny's Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson's Dana Scully, Walter Skinner has always been one of the most prominent cast members in the show. Appearing towards the end of season one in the memorable episode Tooms, Pileggi went on to feature in 80 further episodes and both movies.

Now all we need is the announcement that Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick will be returning as Reyes and Doggett. More news as we have it.

The X Files

Chris Carter's The X Files was the cultural zeitgeist of the 1990s, turning Mulder and Scully into television heroes. With its mix of aliens, conspiracies, monsters and serial killers, it revolutionised cult television and returned for new six-part revival in 2016 and another 10 episodes in 2018.
