Grab those mugs of coffee and some warm apple pie because one of the most iconic shows to ever hit television is coming back, officially, in a really big way.
Okay, so we already knew that Twin Peaks was returning to television and that the original co-creators, a.k.a. TV masterminds David Lynch and Mark Frost, are back at the helm. We also knew that original star Kyle MacLaughlan is back as Dale Cooper. Other than that? We have no freaking clue what’s going to happen.
Or at least we didn’t, until today. That’s because The Movie Network and U.S. broadcaster Showcase finally put out a new promo, pretty much making all of our weekends. On second thought, scratch that. Our weekends are still totally made since the promo reminds us that Season 3 debuts in early 2017, but it doesn’t actually really reveal anything other than Grammy-winning Angelo Badalamenti returning to compose the iconic theme music.
Still, it’s enough to give us goosebumps.
For those who need a mini-refresher, Twin Peaks revolved around the murder of Laura Palmer over a groundbreaking two-season run. Plenty of series since then (including Lost) have borrowed storytelling devices from the show, making its return one of the most anticipated TV projects in a really long time.
When we last parted with the series, it promised to return in 25 years. True to form, the show picks up 25 years from when the residents of Twin Peaks learned that Laura had been brutally murdered. Frost and Lynch wrote and produced all the episodes, while Lynch also directed the entire run.
We’d say please be good, but with commitment like that we kind of know it will be. This is, after all, a story that’s been 25 years in the making.
Need more to tide you over until 2017? Here’s a previously released look at this show from production.
