Patrick will first appear in a flashback episode that depicts Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) as teenagers in the 1980s.
At the time, Jackson was said to be a "powerful, inspiring and heroic" guy, but in the present, he's given up on life. Jackson, as a way to repay his father's debt to Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), also stands as the reason that Alcide first agreed to help Sookie (Anna Paquin) search for Bill (Stephen Moyer) during Season 3.
He's scheduled to make his debut in Episode 9, slated to air Aug. 5 and titled "Everybody Wants to Rule the World."
Several X-Files alumni are up for Critics' Choice Television Awards nominations. Gillian Anderson is in the running for Best Actress in a Movie/Miniseries for Great Expectations. Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad and Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa's Homeland are both up for the Best Drama Series award. In addition, Breaking Bad has four nominated actors, and Homeland has two. American Horror Story is up for Best Movie/Miniseries. Those who followed the show probably recognized writer/producer James Wong in the credits.
The awards ceremony will be held on June 18th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. We'll keep you updated on the winners, but until then, you can find out more about the awards and other nominees at the Critics' Choice website.
Frank Spotnitz responded to a fan's email this morning to say that while there will be no X-Files film this year, there is more than hope for XF3.
"There won't be a movie this year, Beth, but there is more than hope - those of us insisting on a third movie are right; those who doubt its creative and commercial potential are simply dead wrong. Don't give up!"
The Believe in the Future campaign has been going strong for the last four years with no intention of stopping. We hope you will stick around with us because once this film does get made and hits theaters, it will be the biggest, most long-overdue fan party of all time. Don't give up, because no one gets there alone.
