‘Twin Peaks’ Revival Will Air On Showtime In 2016

After almost 25 years, Twin Peaks is coming back!

The groundbreaking television phenomenon, Golden Globe and Peabody Award-winner Twin Peaks will return as a new limited series on Showtime in 2016. Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series, and Lynch will direct every episode. Set in the present day, Twin Peaks will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers and a satisfying conclusion for the series’ passionate fan base.

In addition to Showtime releasing the video above, David Lynch and Mark Frost announced on Twitter that the network is set for a Twin Peaks revival in 2016 with an order of nine episodes. Instead of a reboot, the Twin Peaks revival will be set in present-day and continue the storylines that were left off in the second season.

Twin Peaks aired for two seasons on ABC in 1990 and 1991. The cult serial crime drama starred Kyle MacLachlan, who now has a guest role on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Skye’s father, as well as Michael Ontkean, Madchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, Lara Flynn Boyle, Joan Chen, Peggy Lipton, and many more. The series began with FBI Agent Dale Cooper (MacLachlan) arriving in the small town of Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. Twin Peaks was considered groundbreaking television in the ’90s and has been referenced to constantly over the years.

Nobody has been officially cast in the Twin Peaks revival yet but Lynch is planning to direct all nine episodes, with Lynch and Frost already working away on scripts.

Now is probably a good time to catch up on the series on Netflix.
