After David Lynch and Mark Frost teased it on Friday, Showtime has announced today that the iconic series “Twin Peaks” is coming back on the network as a limited series to air in 2016.
Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series, with Lynch to direct every episode.
Production is slated to kick off next year with the airing in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking serial and often surreal mystery drama. Set in the present day, the show will continue the lore of the original series and in the process provide some long-awaited answers.
Showtime Networks President David Nevins says: “What more can I say – Twin Peaks with David Lynch and Mark Frost on Showtime in 2016! To quote Agent Cooper, ‘I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.'”
Kyle MacLachlan is reportedly set to return as Dale Cooper with a number of other unidentified cast members likely reprising their roles as well.
Showtime will also re-air the first two seasons of Twin Peaks, in advance of the new episodes going on air in 2016.
