Doggett to Return in X-Files 2

Update: It looks like Robert Patrick's original comments may have been premature. Speaking with Latino Review, Patrick says he doesn't know if Doggett will appear in "X-Files 2."

"I would love to do it. I love The X-Files, I love that character and I loved doing that role," Patrick said.

Original Story:
According to The Inland Empire Strikes Back, Robert Patrick will reprise his role as FBI Agent John Doggett in "X-Files 2."

"I owe my sci-fi fans a great deal of my career and I look forward in doing some more. We have the 'X-Files' movie coming up soon and I can't wait to reprise my role of John Doggett once again," Patrick said at the recent premiere of "Mr. 3000."

Sounds like a confirmation to me.

The Doggett character was created during the show's eighth season to fill in for David Duchovny, who agreed to appear as Mulder in only a handful of shows.

There's no word on Doggett's second partner, Agent Monica Reyes (played by Annabeth Gish in the final season), but if Doggett is in there's reason to believe the whole "X-Files" gang -- both new school and old school -- will be on board for the movie follow-up.
