This should be music to the ears of Twin Peaks fans: David Lynch’s go-to melody man, Angelo Badalamenti, is returning for the upcoming revival.
Multiple sources confirm to TVLine that Badalamenti, the man responsible for the original show’s haunting, iconic soundtrack, has signed on to score the anticipated Showtime continuation. In fact, I’m told the Grammy winner is already hard at work on new Peaks music. (Twin Peaks vets Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee hinted at Badalamenti’s possible involvement at a fan Q&A back in May.)
A Showtime rep declined to comment.
Badalamenti’s longtime collaboration with Lynch also includes the films Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive.
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour early this month, Showtime president David Nevins confirmed that the revival is set to start shooting in September and fans can expect “familiar faces” to join confirmed returning cast member Kyle MacLachlan. “You should be optimistic that the people that you want [back] will be there, and then there will be some surprises in addition.”
