Twin Peaks is Coming Back in 2016 Thanks to Showtime!

twin peaksTwin Peaks, the iconic ABC series that stretched the boundaries of weird and brought a new dimension to network television, is coming back to life with nine episodes to air on Showtime in 2016.

Series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost will script the show, with Lynch planning to direct all nine episodes. We can expect the show to debut in early 2016, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the show’s exit….I mean Laura Palmer DID promise Agent Cooper that she would see him in 25 years…right?

Variety is reporting that the new series will be set in the present day and continue storylines established in the second season. Frost has promised the new series will not be a remake or reboot but will reflect the passage of time since viewers last checked in with key characters. Which characters will be returning remains to be seen.

As part of the deal, Showtime will rerun episodes from the original series’ first two seasons leading up to the 2016 premiere

Sound off! Are you excited to return to Twin Peaks?!
