Showtime’s ‘Twin Peaks’ Sets Composer Angelo Badalamenti to Return
Last we heard from Showtime’s Twin Peaks, production had begun gearing up for a September shoot that could potentially place new episodes as early as 2016, but little beyond David Lynch and Kyle MacLachlan have been confirmed to return. Now, at least, we know composer Angelo Badalamenti will return to score the series, affording another notable bit of continuity.
TVLine first reported the news of Badalamenti’s return, though Showtime has yet to issue an official confirmation. The longtime Lynch collaborator and Twin Peaks composer was previously name-dropped by stars Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee in past discussions of the revival, though like Badalamenti, Showtime has acknowledged neither’s official involvement.
When last we heard, David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost had completed work on the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. 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.
We’ll hopefully learn more as production begins in the coming weeks, but how should the Twin Peaks revival update its classic score?
