Some weird things happened in the town of Twin Peaks in the 1990s. And now we’re going back.
The third season of Twin Peaks, picking up 25 years after the original series ended in 1991, is set to premiere on Showtime in 2017. Co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost will be running the show, but the storyline has yet to be revealed.
Original cast members Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper), Miguel Ferrer (FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield), Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Moran), James Marshall (James Hurley), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) and Harry Goaz (Deputy Andy Brennan), along with some new faces like Jim Belushi, sat down to talk about the forthcoming series.
The actors don’t reveal any of the plot, but they are all really excited. Like exuberant. Like they know something. And that’s getting us excited.
MacLachlan particularly sounds like a changed man. He looks a little choked up (1:40):
Digital Spy has a running list of Twin Peaks updates, including a synopsis pulled from Frost’s forthcoming book The Secret History of Twin Peaks, which might be considered a clue:
“Twenty-five years [after Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer], the FBI gets hold of a box it won’t divulge the provenance of. In the box, a huge dossier. A female FBI agent is tasked to analyze all the documents inside, and everything related to the strange town of Twin Peaks. She also has to determine the identity of the person who compiled the dossier.”
On the other hand, it might just be a book and not related to the series at all.
The Twin Peaks revival is expected to air in 2017.
Are you now asking yourself, “Who did kill Laura Palmer?” It’s been a while …
