For a high-profile revival like the cult classic Twin Peaks, there's been a shockingly little amount of promotional material for the new episodes. Well, maybe it isn't all that shocking given this is Twin Peaks and David Lynch we're talking about here, but still, there's barely anything that is known about the revival. That's why we cling to whatever little scrap of footage we get. Today we finally got more than scraps. Check out this new trailer of Twin Peaks that includes some new footage of some recognizable locations from the beloved series.
This footage certainly doesn't take you to the moon and back, but hopefully, it satiates those who are thirsty for more Twin Peaks until the show finally returns. The trailer shows off the town of Twin Peaks, Washington, the sleepy logging town that also has evil ghosts and gateways to other dimensions and stuff. Fans of the show should recognize most of the locations seen in the brief teaser. The first shot is a glimpse of the infamous Red Room, the place Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) visits in a dream and then physically at the end of the series.
There are also shots of the Sheriff's Department, which doesn't look like it's changed at all -- unlike the RR Cafe. The home of the best pie in the world can be seen with a new sign that reads "RR2Go!" with an arrow pointing to the side of the building. Looks like the RR has got something of a drive thru or at least a place to pick up your takeout. There's also a shot of the Fat Trout Trailer Park, which was actually a location in the prequel movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and wasn't seen in the show. Another shot shows a red neon sign reflected in a puddle. It's difficult to read what it says but it could be the sign for One-Eyed Jack's, the casino/brothel that was featured several times in the show.
Finally, the teaser ends with a shot of Laura Palmer's house, where some nasty stuff went down. Laura Palmer was, or course, the murdered teenager whose investigation brought Dale Cooper to Twin Peaks in the first place. Despite most of the Palmer family being dead, the shadow of the house seems to still loom large in the town.
Very little is known about the revival of Twin Peaks, but series creator David Lynch is back at the helm as the driving creative force. Almost every cast member from the original run is returning to reprise their roles, as well as a slew of impressive guest stars. The plot is being kept under wraps but one would imagine the new episodes will try to answer at least some of the biggest questions still lingering after the show's cancellation.
