Don't give up, Doggett fans. Earlier this summer we reported that Robert Patrick was open to returning to the role of John Doggett in Season 11. Now TVLine has learned the X-Files crew has been working to make that happen. A scheduling conflict with Scorpion scrapped an earlier appearance. Chris Carter told TVLine, "I actually wrote him into an episode" but had to redo that when Patrick was unavailable due to commitments with Scorpion. Patrick is reportedly "game" to try again though.

We're crossing our fingers for a Doggett return. Annabeth Gish is back as Monica Reyes and maybe Doggett's presence is just the thing Reyes needs to return from the dark side.
