The very mysterious Twin Peaks revival has served up a very mysterious Twin Peaks teaser. As you might expect, this promo is less about revealing the story’s secrets and more about setting a certain tone and mood — as well as reminding you that yes, this is really happening. Kyle MacLachlan returns as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper as the familiar strains of Angelo Baldamenti‘s iconic theme song play in the background. Watch the Twin Peaks season 3 teaser below.

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 »

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.”

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.

There is a lot of anticipation regarding the return of Twin Peaks in 2017. Not only does the series follow-up coming to Showtime mark the first major directorial effort in 10 years from David Lynch, but it’s also reviving one of the most revered cult classic shows of all time, with a crazy roster of talent on board. Now a new Twin Peaks teaser just raises more questions while confirming a new detail about the series. Read More »

Near the beginning of his introduction to the Television Critics Association, Showtime Networks Inc. President and CEO David Nevins was discussing episode counts for his original series. Of the upcoming Twin Peaks, he said, “We don’t even know for sure how many episodes there will be.”
Showtime had a little bit to share with the TCA from 2017’s Twin Peaks return. A clip package featured actors behind the scenes describing vaguely how surprising and true to the original series it is, but no footage. We did see them unveil the old “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign, and a group of suits led by James Marshall walking down the street. Read More »

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).

J.J. Abrams’ patented “Mystery Box” has nothing on whatever black magic David Lynch and Mark Frost are utilizing as they shoot the third season of Twin Peaks. The revival of the beloved supernatural drama series has been shooting for some time now and has been adding new and returning cast members with borderline alarming frequency, but we know next to nothing about what this series is about or how it will continue the cliffhanger season finale. Even the first trailer was entirely vague.
But we do know that Ashely Judd is in the mix now, playing… who knows? What? Did you expect this particular slice of casting news to come equipped with information of any kind?

The new season of Twin Peaks is supposedly filming right now, but you wouldn’t know it. There is a dearth of solid information out there about Showtime‘s upcoming resurrection of David Lynch and Mark Frost‘s iconic series and the network has steadfastly refused to comment on the various cast members, old and new, who have reportedly joined the production. Laura Dern, Robert Knepper, Balthazar Getty, Amanda Seyfried, and Jennifer Jason Leigh have all reportedly been added to the cast, alongside original series stars Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Miguel Ferrer and Sherilyn Fenn, but only MacLachlan has been officially and publicly confirmed to be involved.
And now we have a new name to ponder as Lynch and Frost toil away in secret: Naomi Watts, a newcomer to the world of Twin Peaks but a veteran of Lynch’s special blend of weirdness.

One of the most hotly anticipated shows of 2016 became one of the most hotly anticipated shows of 2017 when Showtime announced they were pushing back the Twin Peaks revival. But lest you worry this means the new episodes aren’t happening at all, the network has released a tiny little Twin Peaks trailer showing off the series’ gorgeous Pacific Northwest setting and its deliciously creepy vibe.
