We’re all still giddy here at the office about the return of Mulder and Scully, but this, this is the icing on the cake!
David Duchovny, Mulder himself, appeared on with David Letterman on The Late Show and was asked who was coming back: “There’s Gillian and I, we’re original,” he said.
Then, he added: “Mitch Pileggi will come back, and the cigarette-smoking man — if that means anything to anyone — will be coming back.”
Pileggi was FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner on the original series and William B Davis played the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man… the return of these two is great news!
There are also rumours that Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick are coming back too; they played special agents Monica Reyes and John Doggett in the series when Mulder and Scully were off the radar.
It looks like the gang could all be here… and that’s just great.
