Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival is bringing Amanda Seyfried back into the TV fray.
The actress has landed a major role on the ’90s series’ upcoming continuation, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Details on her character are being kept under wraps, but TVLine has learned that she will be playing a pivotal new character. (Could she be Coop and Annie’s daughter?)
Seyfried will appear in multiple episodes, making it her biggest TV gig since Big Love ended in 2011. Though she is best known for her film work these days, Seyfried’s TV resume also includes roles on Veronica Mars, Wildfire, All My Children and As the World Turns.
A Showtime rep declined to comment.
Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have penned all episodes of the present-day continuation — which will total more than the originally announced nine hours — with Lynch directing every installment. Filming is currently underway in Washington state.
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour in August, Showtime president David Nevins hinted that fans can expect “familiar faces” to join 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.”

Who Killed Lily Kane?
exactly..she already has the connection..so cool..after Laura and Lily..who it will be ? Suspens…dun dun dun..
p.s: now, can they cast Jason Dohring..pretty please David !
Coop and Annie’s daughter is a good guess!
I actually really liked that possibility! I still really want to know which original actors will be returning, too.
Well, some of the originals have been spotted on set as well. Bit of googling reveals who.
I bet she’s playing Laura Palmer’s daughter – would make sense she got knocked up at some point and gave up a baby.
“Could she be Coop and Annie’s daughter?” Coop’s trapped in the black lodge, and Annie was in a coma. Were she to be their daughter, wouldn’t she be BOB’s and Annie’s daughter? I’m sure BOB wouldn’t have let something like a coma get in his way.
Annie and Cooper slept together just before the events of the final episode. Any child could easily still be “good” Coop’s.
Prediction: She’s a new character who’s not related to any original character.
I think she’ll be playing Bobby Briggs and Shelly johnson’s daughter.
I second this.
I approve! Anyone who hasn’t seen here in Gone yet should check it out.
That’s rather perfect casting.
Amanda bears a striking resemblance to Heather Graham, who played Annie. I’d say there is a good chance she’ll play the daughter of Annie and Coop, or maybe Lynch and Frost will surprise us, and she’ll have a different father.
Woo! This is exciting. I’ll bet she’s a character we know and love’s daughter.. Not sure which one it could be though.
What about Andy and Lucy? Lucy was actually pregnant at the end after all…
