'Twin Peaks' is BACK to confuse and confound


Showtime has said a total of 217 actors would appear in the new series, with big names such as Monica Bellucci, Jim Belushi, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. Check into the Twin Peaks refresher ahead of Sunday's premiere to get caught up on all the important details. But if it was up to Lynch, Palmer's murderer would still be a mystery.

Check them out below (obviously via Reverb). The show captured the minds of viewers over two (tbh uneven) series and one dastardly prequel film in the early 1990s.

The rebirth of one of the most culturally influential television programs of all time, and the deafening roar of its accompanying marketing, could seem at first glance to be the by-product of a supremely cynical business with few new ideas.

First, there's a man named Sam (Benjamin Rosenfield) in New York City tasked with sitting in a basement and staring at a glass box for hours on end.

Instead, Twin Peaks must be treated now as it was then: a slow moving painting, detailed nearly in real time, as the artist applies stroke after stroke to the canvas, a layered pile of movement, music and cryptic spoken words.

Twin Peaks helped pave the way for the inventive, freaky and mind-bending pleasures Peak TV is now offering more and more of - shows like American Gods, Sense8 and Mr Robot.


Lynch, clearly, will take his time baking this cherry pie and bringing together the various ingredients. As we edge ever closer to the launch of Twin Peaks' season three, it will be interesting to see how 26 years of video games have influenced Lynch's work. We love that our nightmares will be haunted week after week by inventively messed-up corpses and Lynch's usual nerve-jangling sound design and that "Evolution of the Arm" talking art piece thing that was basically a tree with a brain that spoke. (We knew they were going to be in an episode, but not when.) They played "Shadow" (a song that came out in 2015) at the Roadhouse. The continuation series, which will be 18 hours long, will premiere on Sunday and will feature the return of several characters from the original two seasons.

"Beyond Life and Death" plunges Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) into an alternate reality known as the Red Room.

"It's good to be back - especially when you know how many people have been waiting for you!"

For the most part, nostalgia has nothing to do with the new "Twin Peaks". This. Is. Huge. There's even a brand-new opening sequence, set to the signature (oddly soothing) theme music composed by the wonderful Angelo Badalamenti.

Mashable called new Twin Peaks "Eerily familiar, disorienting, dreamy, deeply unsettling". Thankfully, anyone can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Showtime's a la carte service and watch the first two episodes as soon as they begin airing tonight.
