Lone Gunmen X-Files Revival

Lone Gunmen Trio Returning for Fox's X-Files Revival Series

Three more fan-favorite characters just RSVP’d (possibly from beyond the grave) to Fox’s upcoming X-Files revival series.

Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood (aka the Lone Gunmen) are set to appear in at least one episode of the revival, despite the fact that their characters were — spoiler alert! — killed off in the show’s ninth season. The news was broken on Twitter by Haglund, himself:

The popular trio was given a short-lived, self-titled spinoff in 2001; it was cancelled after 13 episodes.

Other X-Files favorites returning for the revival include Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) and the cigarette-smoking man (William B. Davis).

New footage will be shown Thursday during the season finale of Wayward Pines (Fox, 9/8c).
