Fans have been patiently waiting for more information on the highly anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival. Few details are known about what’s to be expected, but now we have a couple more to add to the list. During the San Diego Comic-Con panel for “Batman: The Killing Joke,” Ray Wise, who portrayed Leland Palmer in the original series, mentioned that the revival will be released by Showtime in the summer of 2017 — a time frame that hasn’t been confirmed by the network.
Wise will reprise his role of Palmer, who in the original series was a well-known and respected attorney in the town of Twin Peaks. After his daughter Laura is murdered, his life begins to crumble.
The new series boasts an impressive cast of 217 actors, with most of the original cast members returning. There is also a slew of new faces: Amanda Seyfried, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts and many more. You can see the full list here.
The “Twin Peaks” revival will be Lynch’s first project for film or TV since 2006’s “Inland Empire.” Check out the teaser trailer below:
