It looks like we may see Robert Patrick reprise his role as Agent John Doggett in season 11 of The X-Files.
In an interview with TVLine, the series creator Chris Carter revealed that Doggett was originally going to appear in an early episode of Season 11.
“I actually wrote him into an episode,” Carter explained. “But then I found out he wasn’t going to be available to us
so I had to write him out of the episode… Scorpion is his first priority.”
Carter then teased fans by adding “That’s not to say you won’t see him this season…”
Patrick is also on board to step back into the role, according to TVLine and has confirmed that conflicting schedules with his TV drama Scorpion were what kept him from reappearing earlier.
