Mitch Pileggi will come back, and the cigarette-smoking man if that means anything to anyone will be coming back. Pileggi of course essayed FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner throughout the series nine-season run, while The Smoking Man was portrayed by William B. Davis, who was a villainous, rivalrous presence from the beginning.
