Not much is yet known about the plot of the return to Twin Peaks, Washington, and folks have had to make do with casting announcements to whet their appetites for more Peaks. Sadly, the latest official casting announcement answers not just a question of who will be present in the Showtime series, but also who will not.
2016 is going to be a magical year for television, as Showtime will be bringing Twin Peaks back to audiences for another batch of new episodes. Unfortunately, one very familiar face in that universe will be missing, as the Log Lady has passed away.
Production has been shrouded in mystery, but it has been confirmed that Amanda Seyfried will be joining the cast of the Showtime revival that will take viewers back to Twin Peaks, Washington for the first time in a quarter of a century.
There are so many reboots, remakes and continuations in the works right now, it’s extremely hard to keep track of what is coming up, where those types of programs will be airing and when they will hit the schedule. So, we’ve done it for you.
While some of us are gluttons for the current era of TV, others prefer to kick back and enjoy the shows of yesteryear that have already come to completion. Here are 10 classic shows that are worth all of your attention, whether you binge or spread things out.
That was a close one. After leaving the project over budget disputes, David Lynch has once again joined Twin Peaks.
For a project that has already been picked up to series, there has been a lot of uncertainty around the Twin Peaks revival. Recent rumors stated the series would no longer be headed to Showtime, but those were seemingly debunked by the network.
If you come up with a thousand different ways to describe David Lynch, you’ll arrive at “intentionally cryptic” well before you get to “straightforward.” And so it goes with the return of Twin Peaks, which Lynch has suddenly become more hesitant to speak about with certainty.
The actor has been in all kinds of headlines concerning his possible return to the X-Files universe, but some of us are a little more interested in hearing about whether or not his transgender DEA agent would be coming back for Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival.
Somebody find the Log Lady and tell her carve us up some pie, because the upcoming return of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is bringing back a character that would be impossible to replace.
While most of the bigger problems in a thespian’s world are over in a relatively short amount of time, that definitely wasn’t the case for iconic genre actor Ray Wise, who played Leland Palmer on David Lynch’s classic Twin Peaks. His time was a little hairier than everyone else’s on the series, and you can read about his troubles here.
Ever since Showtime announced it would be returning to Twin Peaks, the show’s co-creator, Mark Frost, has been incredibly excited about the prospect. He’s given interviews teasing the new series and now he has another project in the works related to the hit show.
Last week, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost announced that new episodes of the cult series are being produced for Showtime. Twin Peaks isn’t slated to hit the schedule until 2016, but we’ve already begun to learn about some potential castings.
Details on the new episodes of the hit series are being kept under wraps right now, but we do know that Frost and Lynch will write the limited event series, which will be set 25 years after the events that occurred in ABC’s primetime drama in the early nineties. With subscription cable comes a whole new opportunity to get weird, but we’re hopeful that Twin Peaks will nod at its past as it moves forward into its future.
I’m still having trouble believing that today isn’t just some extended lucid dream, with news dropping earlier that Showtime has ordered a new season of the classic drama Twin Peaks. While some of the series’ mysteries have remained unresolved for over two decades, we can take comfort in knowing how creators David Lynch and Mark Frost came to agree on returning to the surreal town for at least one more maddening journey.
