Well, he’s back! Our favourite bald G-Man will be back in the new THE X-FILES reboot. Mitch and Vanity Fair have confirmed that AD Walter Freaking Skinner will be back, and I for one am pleased. The article is from Vanity Fair. Also back will be David Duchovney (Fox Mulder), Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and series creator, Chris Carter. No word on Robert Patrick (John Doggett) or Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes), though I’m truly hoping they will be. Loved Mitch’s response.

Ha ha. Very funny Mitch!

The X-Files Reboot Is Officially Happening!

by Joanna Robinson

After years of fanboy wishes, months of rumors, and weeks of negotiations, it’s finally official: The X-Files is getting a reboot and it’s just the kind you want.

There’s always a concern when a popular older property gets rebooted that our nostalgia-colored glasses won’t be enough to sustain a new incarnation. In other words, for every ratings blockbuster like J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek, there are less successful efforts like Arrested Development Season 4. But Fox is wisely bringing back their seminal sci-fi series for a very limited run, six episodes only, and the whole gang, including Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Mitch Pileggi (!!!), and creator Chris Carter are back. If those six episodes do well, who knows? We might see little self-contained Mulder and Scully reunions every few years.

The limited-series aspect is likely not only a creative decision, but a practical one. One of the major sticking points in the reboot negotiations were the busy schedules of the show’s major players. (Particularly Anderson who already has major roles in two currently running series: BBC’s The Fall and NBC’s Hannibal.) Duchovny also joked, “We’re all old, we don’t have the energy for a full season.”

Speaking about the lengthy hiatus between the end of Season 9 and this reboot, Carter told The Hollywood Reporter, “I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

The show has had an undeniable cultural impact, having launched the career of Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan and influenced prolific show-runners like Joss Whedon and Russell T. Davies, so its return will be greeted eagerly by its loyal fan base. But will the reboot address any of the lingering mythology questions left unanswered by the original series? And, given Carter’s evident commitment to the show’s strangeness, is it too much to hope that he’ll bring back fan-favorite writer Darin Morgan to help lean into the weird? The truth is out there, now it’s just a matter of waiting patiently.

I was able to get a hold of some final things to close out Mitch’s DALLAS section. The first is a promotional still with Mitch and the cast of the show, plus two stills from two episodes. This means this is the end of the DALLAS section. Unless something else comes up like a film to give an ending to the show or a two parter, then this is it. Sad to see the end of The Rylands. I adored Mitch and Judith Light (Judith Ryland) to bits. I really wish they’d done more with Emma (Emma Bell) but I guess there wasn’t much that could be done with her after what happened in Mexico. Ah well, here ya go.

I’ve added two sets of magazine scans to the gallery. Both articles are from Starlog magazine and come from 1996 and 1998 when Mitch was playing AD Walter Skinner on THE X-FILES. In both articles he talks about Skinner and his relationship to Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson). The 1998 article focuses in on the film THE X-FILES: FIGHT THE FUTURE and Skinner’s evolution in terms of his help to Mulder and Scully. Mitch also talks lovingly about series creator Chris Carter and about his having no desire whatsoever to write or direct. That’s our Mitch. He also talks about Arlene and Sawyer and being a father for the first time. I’m in the process of getting both articles typed up and put in the press section. Until that time the HQ scans are there for you to click on to bring up and you can read them yourselves. Enjoy.

Once again Mitch shows why he’s the master. I have his episode of BLUE BLOODS for you. He had a scant three scenes that I’m wondering was hardly worth the plane fare it took to get him there, or the hot pockets to keep him warm. His role was that of a man who as a young man shot a cop. Not very bright I think, however, the scene at the end where he’s confronted and he more or less gives the information the cops wanted and that Pileggi stare. Well, good to see. Loved the toque.
