Mulder and Scully aren’t the only familiar faces returning for Fox’s upcoming revival of “The X-Files,” which is set to kick 2016 off on a truly awesome note. We’ve just gotten word that another character from the original series is coming back so read on for the latest.
Per TVLine, Annabeth Gish will reprise the role of Agent Monica Reyes in one episode of the six-episode event series. Reyes was last seen in the show’s series finale, helping Mulder and Scully evade capture in the New Mexico desert.
Unfortunately, the site reports that Gish’s on-screen partner Robert Patrick will not be returning.
“The X-Files” debuts on Sunday, January 24, 2016, at 10:00PM immediately after the network’s broadcast of the NFL championship game and begins a five-week run Mondays at 8:00PM.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back as Mulder and Scully, as are Mitch Pileggi as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner, William B. Davis as the iconic Cigarette-Smoking Man, and the Lone Gunmen (Dean Haglund, Tom Braidwood, and Bruce Harwood). Guest stars include Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Kumail Nanjiani, Rhys Darby, Joel McHale, Sheila Larken, and Annet Mahendru.
Veteran writers James Wong and Glen Morgan also return with Morgan joining creator Chris Carter as an executive producer. Shooting continues at North Shore Studios in N. Vancouver through August 14th.
