Showtime’s Twin Peaks has given us a bit of whiplash in its development, but may finally zero in on a 2017 premiere. According to network heads, David Lynch has gotten halfway through production, with an eye to air sometime before summer 2017.
Showtime may be keeping secrets on its Twin Peaks revival, but even the original series managed to hide the famous Diane that Kyle MacLachlan’s Coop seemed to always record messages for. Now, the obscure figure may finally step into the light, as Laura Dern joins the series for a major role.
Officially speaking, Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival has only been willing to confirm Kyle MacLachlan’s return as Agent Dale Cooper, though who would doubt David Lynch to re-gather the iconic cast? Coop may be on his toes once more, now that Sherilyn Fenn has seemingly set her return as the devilish Audrey Horne.
Increasingly rare (and needed) these days, a veil of secrecy has been cast over production of Showtime’s big Twin Peaks revival, now scheduled for 2017 after an episode expansion. David Lynch isn’t keen to show footage anytime soon, but our first teaser for the revived drama teases a frightening return to the famous Washington landscape.
Fred and Carrie may never run short of Portlandia weirdness, if the full Season 6 trailer is any indication, and that’s fine by us.

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.

Showtime’s forthcoming Twin Peaks revival has been through a few notable ups and downs since its announcement, nearly losing creator David Lynch, then potentially doubling in size, and all with an uncertain premiere date.

HBO’s Tales From the Crypt made main characters out of zombies before it was cool, but did you know it was the first TV series to digitally insert an actor into a shot?

Most of Showtime’s Twin Peaks has remained under wraps, per creator David Lynch’s wishes, but already our first major casualty of the revival may have arrived. Michael Ontkean has declined to reprise his role as Twin Peaks sheriff Harry S. Truman, and Robert Forster may step into the role.
Twin Peaks has etched a permanent place in pop culture, surely to grow by Showtime’s revival, but did you know David Lynch and Mark Frost got a greenlit pilot from only a ten minute meeting with ABC?
