Details of Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival remain under lock and key in the Black Lodge, but that hasn’t stopped a number of major castings from bubbling up like some damn fine coffee. Hateful Eight star Jennifer Jason Leigh is the latest confirmed for our new Twin Peaks, with former David Lynch collaborator Naomi Watts also circling a role.

Just the other day, Showtime’s Shameless gave us our first taste of Season 6 with a plethora of debaucherous teasers, and now the Gallagher family is apt to burn things down even faster. The official premiere has been moved up, while Shameless Season 6 celebrates with its first trailer and poster.
Secrecy surrounding Showtime’s Twin Peaks has made it difficult to discern what original cast members might return, and who might end up recast when the new iteration debuts in either 2016 or 2017. At the very least, it seems Shelly Johnson will be at the ready with some cherry pie, now that Mädchen Amick has begun teasing her Twin Peaks return.
We’ve had an eventful year, TV-wise, but it’s never too early to start looking ahead to 2016. To wit, the Gallagher family is already back, and more crass than ever, as Showtime previews the premiere of Shameless Season 6 with a host of new promos.
There’s little skirting the fact that Showtime’s Homeland would occasionally portray various foreign powers in a villainous light, earning potential ire from said countries in the real world. That outrage seems to have spurred some crafty on-set graffiti artists, who managed to sneak in some accusations of racism into the Showtime drama’s latest episode.
Cameron Crowe‘s Showtime music dramedy Roadies hit a few bumps along the way, languishing in development and retooling its pilot with Carla Gugino replacing Mad Men alum Christina Hendricks, but the show will finally take the stage. Crowe confirms a series order for 2016, also delivering our first footage.
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.
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. Said mystery deepens now that Peter Sarsgaard has joined the cast in an important role, and … well, we’ll always have coffee.
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. Prison Break and Arrow star Robert Knepper will grab some fine coffee with the cast, but has the mystery surrounding our new Twin Peaks lessened?
