There is a video available at FOX’s official Youtube channel. Mitch provided the link in a Tweet. Thanks Mitch for the lead. The new footage is toward the end of the video showing both Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) in their FBI suits and in full G-Man/Woman mode.

The Mitch Man himself has confirmed his involvement in the six episode revival of THE X-FILES. Variety has picked up the story as well. Mitch’s funny tweet went like this:

Then later he had this to say:

At any rate, good to see our favourite bald G-Man will be back. Long live Walter Skinner!

Well I knew it was too good to be true. According to David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) Mitch isn’t confirmed…yet, for the reboot of THE X-FILES. After his appearance on The Letterman Show on Tuesday night, he has said he misspoke on Mitch’s inclusion.

‘The X-Files’ Star David Duchovny ‘Not Sure’ If Mitch Pileggi And William B. Davis Have Signed Up For The Revival Yet

During his Tuesday appearance on “Late Show with David Letterman,” David Duchovny said that Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis are returning for the upcoming “The X-Files” revival on Fox. But in a more recent interview at NBC’s Summer Press Day in Pasadena, Calif., the 54-year-old actor coiled back a bit on the spoilers.

“I’m not even sure they’re signed up yet, I guess I spoke out of turn,” Duchovny told Variety on Thursday, April 2. “But I assume they will. I assume we’ll have as many people as we can. The show is the show.”

Pileggi played FBI assistant director Walter Skinner on the Chris Carter-created series, which originally run from 1993 to 2002.

Davis, on the other hand, played the cigarette-smoking man who is the primary antagonist of the show. The villain also serves as the arch-nemesis of Duchovny’s character, FBI special agent Fox Mulder.

In the show’s sixth season, the real name of Davis’ character is disclosed to be C.G.B. Spender, but fans continue to refer to him as the smoking man because he is almost always seen chain-smoking Morley’s, a fictional brand of cigarette. Like other series villains, Spender also has multiple aliases, including Cancer Man, CSM and C-Man.

When asked if “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan will join the creative team of the six-episode reboot, Duchovny said, “I don’t know. I don’t know.”

But actually, Gilligan has already expressed his interest in joining the limited series.

“I would love to be involved,” the 48-year-old Primetime Emmy winner said in an interview with “The X-Files” fan site The X-Files Lexicon in February. “I don’t know with my current schedule, if I necessarily could be involved, but I got to tell you I hope that is the case.”

“And [if] it works out that there [are] more X-Files in the offing… even if I weren’t involved, I can tell you as a fan, I’d be right there with my Dr. Pepper and my big bowl of popcorn, and the lights dimmed down low,” Gilligan added.

Prior to creating “Breaking Bad” and its spinoff “Better Call Saul,” Gilligan worked as a writer, director and producer for “The X-Files.”

Filming on the series is set to kick off in Vancouver this summer for a 2016 release.

I am a happy camper this evening. Just found this.

Pileggi, Davis, Patrick, Gish return for X-Files

Mitch Pileggi and William B.Davis will be back as Skinner and The Cigarette Smoking Man, respectively, in Fox’s “X-Files” sequel series.

Star David Duchovny revealed the new inclusions on David Letterman’s show this week, reiterating that many of the originals from the original show – aside from himself and Gillian Anderson – will reprise their roles for the new six-episode series.

Also expected to reprise their roles from the original run, Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish, who TV Line says have been signed to return as Doggett and Reyes.

“The X-Files” begins filming this Summer in Vancouver.
