London: Agent Doggett is definitely out of the "X-Files" revival, with actor Robert Patrick confirming that his character will not appear in the new event series.

Doggett and partner Reyes (Annabeth Gish) were introduced as potential replacements for the beloved Mulder and Scully in the Fox drama's final two seasons (2000-2002), reported Digital Spy.

However, Patrick said that he has not been asked back for the new revival, after he and Gish also sat out the last "X-Files" movie in 2008.

Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) will be back - alongside Mitch Pileggi as their old ally Walter Skinner and William B Davis as their old enemy The Smoking Man.

And while Doggett and Reyes may be absent, "The Flash" actor Robbie Amell and "Six Feet Under" star Lauren Ambrose will guest star as a pair of fresh-faced FBI agents.
"The X-Files" will return to Fox on January 24, 2016.
