The latest television revival is here!
25 years on, Twin Peaks is heading back to the small screen thanks to Showtime. The two season series produced by CBS originally premiered back in 1990 and followed an investigation led by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper which looked into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks, Washington. The series also saw a feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, produced in 1992.
Even though the film didn’t fare well in the box office, Twin Peaks has a somewhat cult following and helped to set the ‘dead girl’ standards for future television series, such as Pretty Little Liars and even Riverdale.
Now here comes the third season! The revival season will consist of 18 episodes which picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of the quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.
The series was written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.
Twin Peaks will premiere with a two-part special on Sunday May 21st at 9pm ET with the episodes being made available on Showtime on Demand and Australia’s Stan. The third and fourth episodes will be made available to stream on Showtime Anytime and Showtime on Demand which will then premiere on television the following weekend with single episodes thereafter.
