Twin Peaks season 3 trailer

More than 25 years after it was unceremoniously cancelled by ABC, David Lynch and Mark Frost’s absurd, comical, horrific, and totally mesmerizing series Twin Peaks is set to return as a limited event series on Showtime. The network has been doling out teaser trailers with a frustrating lack of new footage, but as I learned catching up with the whole original run of the series recently, frustration seems to be part of the whole Twin Peaks experience.

Thankfully, this latest teaser trailer actually shows off some actual footage of some familiar cast members, and includes a single word of new dialogue. Yep, a whole word! Check it out below.

Twin Peaks promo

It’s happening again. For those who’ve seen David Lynch and Mark Frost’s influential television series Twin Peaks, the tagline for Showtime’s anticipated revival of the show carries with it an unnerving sense of dread about what’s going on in the seedy underbelly of the all-American town. But there’s also a sense of excitement at the prospect of seeing familiar characters again after more than 25 years. So many revivals are let-downs, but at least we know new content from David Lynch won’t be boring.

Showtime has been spooling out tiny bits of marketing at an excruciatingly slow pace, and today the network released a new teaser that shows what the town of Twin Peaks looks like in 2017. Are you ready to return to the Black Lodge?

Twin Peaks premiere date

The return of Twin Peaks has been shrouded in mystery, and not just the odd, surreal Lynchian kind. Up until now, we’ve had little idea about when the show would premiere or even how many episodes we’d get. But today at their TCA session, Showtime shared the first crumbs of information we’ve had about Twin Peaks in a good long while, including an exact release date and episode count.  Read More »

twin peaks season 3 teaser

What if I told you that the latest teaser for Twin Peaks season 3, one of the most mysterious and anticipated television events in some time, dedicated most of its precious 30 seconds to series co-creator, director, and actor David Lynch eating a donut? If you don’t know the show at all, you’d raise an eyebrow and wonder what the hell is going on. If you are familiar with the series, even just a little bit, you’ll probably say, “Yeah, sounds about right.”

Twin Peaks season 3 featurette

I won’t be convinced that Twin Peaks season 3 actually exists until the closing credits roll on the first episode sometime next year. Until that happens, the return of one of television’s most beloved and most frustrating shows is purely theoretical. Not even this new featurette, which features members of the original cast and a few newcomers discussing what it’s like to return to that bizarre small town, has me certain about this.

twin peaks revival cast

Showtime‘s revival of Twin Peaks has been filming under an impenetrable veil of secrecy. Anyone who knows what’s going on with it isn’t talking and for all we know, those who came close to getting chatty were met with a mysterious “accident.” Even all of the casting news that has been steadily arriving over the past year has been met with total silence. Beyond original series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost writing the new season and Lynch directing every episode, almost nothing has been confirmed. Even the first trailer didn’t tell us anything.

And now production on the new batch of episodes has wrapped and Showtime has unleashed the full cast list…and it is a doozy. There are 217 names on this list, a combination of original Twin Peaks cast members and newcomers, movie stars and character actors, people who feel like they’d fit perfectly into Lynch and Frost’s crazy world and people who feel like they won’t work at all (which means they’re probably perfect for it).
