Agent Skinner will return 'all grumpy and bitchy' for X Files reboot
Another much-loved character will be joining Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for the X Files reboot.
Walter Skinner, played by Mitch Pileggi, will reprise his role as FBI Assistant Director in the new series which will start production this summer.
Six episodes of the hugely popular science-fiction show will be made with its creator, Chris Carter, back at the helm.
Pileggi tweeted the news with comment, "Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy."
Mulder and Scully features in nine years worth of episodes - more than 200. Agent Skinner last appeared in the 2008 film I Want to Believe.
