Two of Stargate‘s own are returning to their roots: the venerable science fiction drama The X-Files.
Actor David Duchovny told David Letterman in a recent appearance that Mitch Pileggi (“Walter Skinner”) and William B. Davis — a.k.a. the Cigarette-Smoking Man — will join him and co-star Gillian Anderson for the 6-episode revival. (Watch the video below.)
FOX announced last week that they are bringing back the iconic show, which ran from 1993 until 2002, for a 6-episode “event” season. Anderson and Duchovny return, along with series creator Chris Carter.
Davis guest starred as a Prior of the Ori in the Stargate SG-1 episodes “Babylon” and “The Fourth Horseman, Part 2.” He has since played a key recurring role on Continuum (which airs its final episodes later this year).
FOX has not made any official announcements about their casting.
The X-Files will begin shooting this summer in Vancouver — where the series filmed for its first five seasons — and is expected to air in 2016. For more bookmark our sister site, SciFiStream.com!
