Annabeth Gish will reprise her role of FBI Agent Monica Reyes for one episode of FOX’s upcoming event series revival of “The X-Files”.
Gish’s character first appeared in the show’s eighth season as a recurring guest star and became a regular cast member during the final season.
Sadly her onscreen partner in crime Robert Patrick (Agent John Doggett) is unlikely to return. The actor currently has a full-time gig on one of the best-rated shows on TV, CBS’ “Scorpion,” and told The Mary Sue back in June:
“I’ll set the record straight with you. I’m not going to do it. I’m very happy with the job I have. I’m on CBS – that’s a different network – and I’m content and happy and I don’t really see a reason to go and revisit that show. It’s not that I wouldn’t be interested. I just don’t know what the reason is to both at the same time.”
Filming on “The X-Files” revival is underway ahead of a January premiere.
