Now they’re just getting silly. Showtime has released a new teaser promo for the upcoming revival of “Twin Peaks,” this one teasing the return of the FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole character in the midst of his usual routine.
Yes, that equates to director David Lynch himself tucking into a big donut. Lynch reprises the role as part of the eighteen new episodes of the series which he’s directed and will premiere next year on Showtime.
Set twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered, the new episodes are written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost.
The cast is ridiculously stacked. First there’s returnees Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Madchen Amick, Michael Horse, Dana Ashbrook, Miguel Ferrer, David Duchovny, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie and Warren Frost.
