Fox's X-Filesreboot will officially welcome back another veteran alongside David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Mitch Pileggi has signed on to join the six-episode revival series, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Pileggi tweeted the news on Monday.

The actor starred as Walter Skinner, Mulder and Scully's boss and friend, though occasionally an enemy, throughout The X-Files' nine-season run. He also appeared in both movies and the short-lived spin-off The Lone Gunmen.
