For those unfamiliar with the unofficial holiday, “Twin Peaks” Day falls on Feb. 24, a day of remembrance for the day that the body of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) was found wrapped in plastic in Twin Peaks. That was also the day that Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) arrived in the quaint northwestern town. He even marked the time when it happened:

“Twin Peaks” picks up 25 years after the events of the original series. Very little is known about the plot, but many of the cast members are returning, including Kyle MacLachlan. All 18 episodes have been directed by David Lynch, who co-wrote the series with Mark Frost.
