First ‘Twin Peaks’ 2017 Teaser: Is That You, Coop?
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.
Our first official return teaser to Twin Peaks waxes poetic about the majesty of the iconic ABC series’ landscape, before finally unveiling the familiar Twin Peaks sign erected by production. One cryptic moment inserts a blurry jumpcut of a spooky, well-dressed and white-haired figure, one many will surely presume to be Kyle MacLachlan’s Dale Cooper in the Black Lodge, but more likely to be Lynch himself, having a bit of fun.
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 Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer and 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, but what do we make of the first 2017 teaser?
