The mystery surrounding Twin Peaks extends to the Showtime cast itself, as despite at least three major additions, we don’t yet know the significance of any new roles, or plot.

Filming on Twin Peaks has officially begun, enough so that David Lynch asks photographers not to spoil anything from the set, so we wouldn’t expect new footage just yet? Either way, The Man From Another Place is back in a new teaser, so reverse the audio, and let’s rock!
The world of Twin Peaks dimmed with the recent passing of its iconic “Log Lady” Catherine Coulson, yet Showtime rolls forward with another addition to next year’s reboot.

As inherent to Twin Peaks’ success as the central mystery of Laura Palmer was, there’s no arguing that the original ABC series ran amid a much less spoiler-phobic culture. Now that Showtime’s revival has begun setting up shop however, creator David Lynch has asked that fans avoid observing production, or any possible Twin Peaks spoilers therein.
