Between now and The X-Files return, those involved with the show can expect to be asked about it at every opportunity, and David Duchovny let some news slip while talking to David Letterman on The Late Show.

Duchovny revealed that Mitch Pileggi will return as Walter Skinner, as will William B Davis as The Cigarette Smoking Man.

To be fair, it would be more surprising if the characters weren’t returning given their importance to the series, but it’s great to have it confirmed.
