Cigarette Smoking Man, FBI Assistant Director Skinner, And More Returning For ‘The X-Files’

Cigarette Smoking Man, FBI Assistant Director Skinner, And More Returning For 'The X-Files'

There are two ways the new, six-part, limited series of “The X-Files could go — Agents Mulder and Scully could find themselves on a new adventure with fresh faces, or be given a case that has them interacting with many of the familiar folks we’ve seen before. And it looks like it’s the latter that’s shaping up.

Robert Patrick (Special Agent John Doggett), Annabeth Gish (Special Agent Monica Reyes), Mitch Pileggi (FBI Assistant Director Skinner), and William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man) are all expected to return to the series. But like most of the intel around the series right now, not much is known beyond this bit of news. It’s not certain where, or how extensively, the characters will fit into the six-episode arc, and of course, plot details are under wraps. It’ll be interesting to see what Fox does in regards to Cigarette Smoking Man, considering that smoking is pretty much verboten on TV these days. Maybe he’ll wear a nicotine patch.

Production will get underway this summer, but let us know what you think about these characters returning. [TV Wise/EW]
