Is John Doggett returning to The X-Files? TVLine reports Robert Patrick may return for season 11 of the FOX TV show.
Patrick first appeared as Agent Doggett on season eight of the sci-fi series. The new season will see the return of fellow original cast members Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Annabeth Gish, Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, and Dean Haglund.
Speaking to TVLine, X-Files creator Chris Carter teased a possible appearance by Patrick in the show’s upcoming 11th season:
I actually wrote him into an episode. But then I found out he wasn’t going to be available to us [because of Scorpion] so I had to write him out of the episode… Scorpion is his first priority. … That’s not to say you won’t see him this season…”
Season 11 of The X-Files is slated to debut on FOX in January 2018.
