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. 

He also stated that there would be a total of 18 episodes, all to be directed by David Lynch, and that he would be in all of them. The number of episodes does match the number listed on IMDB.
