Even as Showtime’s Twin Peaks left more maddeningly unresolved than the original series, fans have more or less accepted the unlikelihood of another season. That said, creator David Lynch won’t rule one out, even if “it took me four and a half years to write and record this [one].”
Showtime’s Twin Peaks may be among our Best of 2017 after only eight episodes, but its unorthodox pace and characterizations have certainly subverted expectation. To that end, Kyle MacLachlan himself calls some of the extended Dougie scenes “challenging,” promising that “everything will come back together and make sense.”
Twin Peaks made its glorious return to television this week after a break of over 25 years. Fans across the country are celebrating the new season.

The jury’s out on whether we’ll see an actual Twin Peaks trailer before Showtime premieres its May 21 revival, and even the last promo only gave us shots of the town itself. Thankfully, those characters you like are coming back in style, with some actual (albeit absurdly cryptic) footage of new Twin Peaks!
Our first official glimpse of Showtime’s Twin Peaks couldn’t even get David Lynch to confirm cast were playing their old roles, so a trailer seemed out of the question.

Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival has frustrated anxious fans with some initial hiccups or an ever-uncertain schedule, and like the series itself, only more mystery lies in store.

Mind-boggling though the reveal of Showtime’s 217-strong Twin Peaks revival cast list proved to be, fans couldn’t help zero in on those among the original series absent from the returning cast. Now, alum from Joan Chen, to Heather Graham to the backwards-speaking Michael J. Anderson explain their absence, deepening the mystery.
Hey, so remember when Showtime would only ever officially confirm Kyle MacLachlan among its Twin Peaks revival cast, despite the myriad of casting leaks over the last few months?

The secrecy of Twin Peaks can surely drive fans to madness, thus far only confirming a premiere in early 2017, but there’s good news.
