X-Files is hoping to bring back Robert Patrick in season eleven to reprise his role as John Doggett. TV Line spoke with creator Chris Carter, who said that there is a hope that Doggeet may return for the upcoming season.

Carter said that there were plans for Patrick to appear in an early episode of the new season, saying, “I actually wrote him into an episode. But then I found out he wasn’t going to be available to us [because of Scorpion] so I had to write him out of the episode…Scorpion is his first priority.”

He then noted, “That’s not to say you won’t see him this season…”

Patrick added that he’s “game” to reprise his role from seasons eight and nine of the original series.
