Twin Peaks Revival: New Behind-the-Scenes Video Brings Back the Cast
When it was announced that Twin Peaks would be revived after twenty years off the air, there were two reactions: a quizzical look from anyone born after the groundbreaking original 1990s run of the show, and a giddy scream from everyone who remembered the cult classic and its borderline-fever-dream investigation into the titular town. The show will be bringing back many members of the original cast, including Kyle MacLachlan, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz, Dana Ashbrook, and James Marshall, and adding some new faces, including Amy Shiels and Jim Belushi. You can hear each of them talk about the upcoming show in the new featurette, released today!
For those of you who don't know what Twin Peaks is, but want to, here's the short, short version: Laura Palmer, the homecoming queen of the town of Twin Peaks is found brutally murdered. Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan's character) is an FBI agent called in to handle the case. He's essentially the Fox Mulder of the show: charming, well-dressed, and obsessed with the supernatural. He works with the local Sheriff to slowly uncover the events leading up to Laura's death, and realizes that the people in Twin Peaks, despite seeming to be clean-livin' folk, move in a web of double-lives, seedy desires, and strange, supernatural occurrences. Somewhere in there is the identity of Laura's murderer.
The show is known for a couple things, including its addictive nature (binge-watchers, go for it!), bizarre dream sequences, and emotional impact. It's an incredibly immersive, mind-bending show that veers into becoming outright terrifying. For fans of Stranger Things and X-Files, it's got everything: conspiracy theories, nostalgia, mysteries inside of mysteries, fascinating characters, and an underlying spooky atmosphere that keeps the show on edge. A lot of fans are super excited to see David Lynch take the helm of the show again and working with MacLachlan, especially considering the last time the duo teamed up on Twin Peaks the result was one of the most influential television shows of all time.
So welcome back, Agent Cooper.
Twin Peaks Season 3 is set to be released in 2017.
