Things are about to get weird…again.
Twenty five years after David Lynch created one of the most intriguing (and woefully short-lived) shows of all time, he has returned. Or rather, he will in 2017.

But thanks to Showtime, who brought back Lynch in the director’s chair as well as creator Mark Frost and star Kyle MacLachlan, the groundbreaking series will be returning for up to an 18 episode run next year.

The town’s sheriff welcomed the help of FBI agent Dale Cooper, who came to town to investigate the case. As Cooper conducted his search for Laura’s killer, the town’s secrets were gradually exposed. The mystery that ensued set off an eerie chain of events that plunged the inhabitants of Twin Peaks into a darker examination of their very existence. Twenty-five years later, the story continues…
