Showtime has yet to zero in on a premiere date for its highly anticipated Twin Peaks revival, nor has it let loose with much actual new footage. So, we’ll take what we can get in the meantime.
And right here and now, what we can get is a few seconds of series auteur David Lynch reprising his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole, in the new teaser above.
Suffering from severe and permanent hearing loss (it’s a “long story”), Cole above now sports updated hearing aids, versus the wired kind he used during the series’ original run.
Picking up 25 years after the original series left off, the new Twin Peaks episodes (premiering “sometime in 2017″) feature returning alumni Kyle Maclachlan (as FBI agent Dale Cooper), Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey), Madchen Amick (Shelly), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby), James Marshall (James), David Duchovny (Agent Dennis) and Ray Wise (Leland), among many others.
New additions include Jim Belushi, Robert Knepper, Ashley Judd, Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Jessica Szohr, Jane Levy and Richard Chamberlain.
