I want to believe.
“The X-Files” is returning to television for a short-stack order of 6-episodes. It’s official.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return as Mulder and Scully, respectively. That’s official.
Now, it’s confirmed that both the infamous Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis) and FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) will return to the FOX series.
Duchovny appeared on “Late Show With David Letterman” where he revealed both are back for another round of sci-fi horror.
“There’s Gillian and I, we’re original. Mitch Pileggi will come back, and the cigarette-smoking man — if that means anything to anyone — will be coming back.”
“The X-Files” went on for nine season and was expanded into two feature films, as well as an ongoing comic series.
