Twin Peaks has lost yet another of its returning Showtime cast, as star and co-creator Mark Frost’s father Warren is no longer with us. The Twin Peaks coroner and sometime Seinfeld star has passed away at age 91.
The way Twin Peaks promotion has gone so far, neither Showtime nor David Lynch are likely to give up too many details (or footage) before the May premiere. That said, a few new teasers of Showtime’s revival catch us up to speed on the major bookending events of the series, to say nothing of a controversial film and some fine coffee.
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch proved predictably David Lynch with his refusal to divulge details of Showtime’s 18-episode revival, though the eccentric creator at least offered that controversial prequel Fire Walk With Me would serve as important prelude. As such, Showtime will re-run the film in March, affording ample time for another catchup before our May return to the Black Lodge.
Hollywood has lost one of its most prolific supporting actors today, as Twin Peaks star and storied actor Miguel Ferrer has lost a battle with cancer. The recognizable star identified with everything from the original RoboCop to NCIS has passed away at age 61.
Why Showtime didn’t see fit to release a new teaser with word of Twin Peaks’ May premiere is anyone’s guess (that David Lynch always was a wily one), but nonetheless, we have a bigger question: How’s Annie? We may find out, as the newest Showtime Twin Peaks teaser finally reintroduces us to Agent Cooper!
Twin Peaks fans finally had their prayers answers with word that not one, but as many as four new episodes would premiere on May 21, to say nothing of the confirmed 18-episode order. Now, Showtime and David Lynch address if said 18 will prove the last of Twin Peaks, when we might expect a trailer, and what role the prequel Fire Walk With Me might play.
It’s been a long time coming, and opaque even for David Lynch, but Twin Peaks is finally ready to pour a new cup of coffee. The revived mystery-thriller has at long last confirmed a two-hour May premiere, along with an episode order.
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch’s famed secrecy isn’t the only reason Showtime won’t confirm a date for its 2017 revival, as reports suggested Lynch wasn’t required to set one. Recent rumors suggested Showtime might have something to display at Sundance, but now an intriguing tidbit could place an official premiere closer to April or May.
We still don’t exactly know when in 2017 the new Twin Peaks will premiere, let alone when to expect a possible trailer or photos, but attendees of this year’s Sundance Film Festival may get a little of that fine coffee. Conversations are apparently taking place for Twin Peaks to have a presence at the event later on in January.
Showtime’s Twin Peaks has as already confirmed a vast majority of original series stars aboard for the 2017 revival, though it remained to be seen if creator David Lynch would step out from behind the camera. Now, a new teaser promises Gordon Cole’s return, as David Lynch enjoys one of Twin Peaks’ famous donuts.
