The X-Files Season 11 is going to open the door a little further on the character Walter Skinner as it will include an episode that will dive into his history and origin. Actor Mitch Pileggi, who is coming back to reprise his role, teased what the episode would entail, saying:
“You’re going to find out a lot more about his past. Fans will find out who he is, where he comes from and why he is the way he is.”
Skinner has always been a great and fascinating character in the series and it will be really interesting to learn about the shit that he has gone through in his life to turn him into the hardass man that we've come to know in the series.
The story will be told in the sixth episode and Pileggi goes on to say that it will show us that Skinner is much more than just a cranky guy “who sits in the office bitching at Scully and Mulder. Ultimately, he is their champion.”
I'll be looking forward to seeing this episode!
