Take note: Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival could be arriving sooner than expected.
“I’m excited to share that [Twin Peaks creator] David Lynch is more than halfway through shooting schedule, and it will premiere in the first half of 2017,” Showtime CEO David Nevins announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. Prior to this announcement, the revival was expected to premiere “sometime in 2017.”
Twin Peaks, which aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, followed FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (played by Kyle McLachlan) as he investigates the curious murder of a homecoming queen in the sleepy town of Twin Peaks, Wash.
Many of the cult drama’s original cast members are returning for the revival, including McLachlan and Sherilyn Fenn (as Audrey Horne). As TVLine exclusively reported, Laura Dern has also joined the cast — possibly the playing the infamous Diane.
