New 'Twin Peaks' Photos Reunite the Show's Original Cast
ABC
The Twin Peaks revival has been suitably weird in its marketing so far, after dropping mysterious trailers featuring star Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper masked in darkness, or creator David Lynch simply eating a donut for half a minute. But now we have somethings more, with stills from the upcoming season of the surreal crime drama.

Entertainment Weekly published first-look photos of the wonderfully aged cast, including a three-part cover photo which includes nearly everybody from the old show. From left to right, there's an owl (who's not what it seems), Nadine, Big Ed, James Hurley, the mostly dead Laura Palmer, the deaf Agent Gordon (played by Lynch himself), star Dale Cooper, Audrey Horne, Shelly Johnson, Bobby Briggs, and Norma Jennings. As we said: nearly everybody.



The show follows Agent Cooper as he travels to the small town of Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. Of course, everything is not what it seems, and Cooper finds himself investigating a more complex (and vaguely demonic) case than he could've imagined. Twin Peaks has been hailed for its surrealism, quirky characters, and humor, earning it a cult following and leaving a lasting impression on future mystery shows. The show was cancelled after just two seasons when the second season paled in comparison to the first. We're hoping season three will unravel more like season one, to say the least.

 

EW also released some more set photos, including Mädchen Amick (left) and Peggy Lipton (right) appear here at the Double R Diner reprising their roles as Shelly Johnson and Norma Jennings, respectively. 



It hasn't been officially confirmed if the X-Files star David Duchovny is reprising his role as DEA Agent Denise Bryson, although we assume so since he is pictured on set. 



Lynch describes the upcoming season as a "feature film in 18 parts", which could lead to an unconventional format. Twin Peaks has never prided itself on conventionality, so we're not worried. The reboot of Twin Peaks premieres May 21, 2017 at 9 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes and two more available to stream on Showtime online.
