It’s happening again.
Last week, we saw the writing on the wall with a couple of hopeful tweets from the creators of “Twin Peaks.” Today, our speculation becomes a reality. A video tweeted by co-creator Mark Frost confirms that “Twin Peaks,” the cult-favorite murder-mystery from the early ’90s, will return to TV 25 years after its original demise, as a 9-episode miniseries on Showtime in early 2016.
Variety reports that the new episodes will take place in the present day, and be a continued storyline rather than any sort of remake of the original storyline. No word has been spoken yet on casting, but it would be safe (and damn appropriate) to assume that Kyle McLachlan will return as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Beyond that, anyone who is familiar with “Twin Peaks” knows that the characters and storyline are, as always, completely wide open, and could go in basically any direction while seeming strangely natural.
This is, by far, some of the greatest news that has happened in some time. The struggle now is that we have to wait until early 2016 for this to actually happen.
In the meantime, we’ll be dancing like this…
…and singing like this….
