"Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy," he wrote.

Former co-stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will also return as Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, respectively. Series creator and executive producer Chris Carter is developing the six-episode, limited continuation for 20th Century Fox Television.

The X-Files follows Scully and Mulder as they investigate unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena, and had an initial nine-season run. Pileggi is also known for playing Col. Steven Caldwell on SyFy series Stargate Atlantis and Ernest Darby on FX drama Sons of Anarchy.
