Fox's X-Files reboot 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.
Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy.— Mitch Pileggi (@MitchPileggi1) April 20, 2015
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.
Pileggi had been rumored to return for weeks, and Duchovny teased his possible return during a recent interview with David Letterman.
Pileggi has most recently appeared on Dallas, Sons of Anarchy and Grey's Anatomy.
