Showtime ‘Twin Peaks’ Sets Miguel Ferrer to Return as WellKevin Fitzpatrick |
Yesterday saw Twin Peaks fans denied a 2016 cup of coffee with news that Showtime had officially pushed its revival to 2017, but the delay might be worth the wait to return additional alum. Miguel Ferrer is the latest original Twin Peaks star heading back into town for David Lynch’s revival, even as Showtime attempts to keep everything under wraps.
Per Deadline, Ferrer will reprise his eight-episode role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield, described as “a cynical city slicker FBI forensics specialist who butted heads with Twin Peaks Sheriff Harry S. Truman.” That said, we still don’t know where we’ll find Truman when the series resumes, given that Michael Ontkean declined to reprise his role, and may potentially be recast with Robert Forster.
Notably, the report also lists David Patrick Kelly and Richard Beymer rumored to be reprising their roles as Jerry and Benjamin Horne as well.
David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost wrote the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. Thus far, only Kyle MacLachlan has been officially confirmed to return, though Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Madchen Amick and Sherilyn Fenn have all been heavily rumored, along with new additions Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
The original Twin Peaks saw Agent Dale Cooper arriving in the titular town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, only to find the mystery ran far deeper than he could ever expect, with a touch of the supernatural. The new iteration will pick up 25 years after the Season 2 finale in 1991, which saw MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper in a Black Lodge limbo.
Showtime has yet to set an official Twin Peaks premiere, who else from the original series might return before 2017?
