Amanda Seyfried Joins Showtime’s ‘Twin Peaks’ in What Else, Mystery Role
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch may have implored fans to avoid spoiling Showtime’s upcoming revival with reports from the set, but he didn’t say anything about casting! Cue Amanda Seyfried, making her TV return with a new mystery role in the next incarnation of Twin Peaks. Damn fine
TVLine broke word of the former Big Love star’s TV return to multiple Twin Peaks episodes, though understandably, Showtime has neither commented nor offered any clarifications about the “pivotal new role.” The report also wildly speculates that Seyfried could play Coop and Annie’s daughter, but whether that conjecture holds any merit is up to you.
When last we heard, David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost completed work on 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 confirmed to return, though Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee, among others, have all been heavily rumored.
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 st an official Twin Peaks premiere, likely either late 2016 or 2017, but what can we make of the first brand-new cast member?
