The highly-anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival series will hit television sometime next year. Director and co-creator David Lynch is currently editing the series and it will feature many of the original cast members, including star Kyle MacLachlan. But before then, co-creator Mark Frost will release a novel entitled “The Secret History of Twin Peaks,” which will reveal what the series’ characters have been up to since the 1991 finale. EW reports that Kyle MacLachlan and several of the original cast will reunite for the novel’s audiobook. Other actor set to take part include Russ Tamblyn, Michael Horse, Chris Mulkey, David Patrick Kelly, Amy Shiels, James Morrison, Robert Knepper, Annie Wersching, and Len Cariou.
“I am thrilled that both original cast members and new actors will be coming together on this project to bring this other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life,” said Frost. Besides co-creating “Twin Peaks,” Frost was also a writer and story editor on the acclaimed NBC drama “Hill Street Blues.” He also co-created David Lynch’s other TV series “On The Air,” co-wrote the 2005 “Fantastic Four” movie and its sequel “Rise of the Silver Surfer,” as well as the sports film “The Greatest Game Ever Played.”
Meanwhile, Lachlan has appeared in numerous films throughout his career, such as “Dune,” “Blue Velvet,” “The Doors,” “Showgirls,” and most recently, the Pixar film “Inside Out.” His TV work includes long recurring guest spots on “Sex and the City” and “Desperate Housewives,” and is currently a recurring character on Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch series “Portlandia.”
“The Secret History of Twin Peaks” will be released on October 18th.
