Director David Lynch hasn’t directed a film since “Inland Empire” in 2006, and while many believed he had left the industry for good, he will soon make his return with the “Twin Peaks” revival series coming next year. The highly anticipated continuation of Lynch and Mark Frost’s acclaimed, popular series will feature many of the original cast members, including Kyle MacLachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper, Harry Goaz as Deputy Andy Brennan, Miguel Ferrer as Agent Albert Rosenfield, and more. Watch the first behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming series, which features MacLachlan and much of the cast discussing their return to Lynch’s world.
The original “Twin Peaks” premiered in 1990 on CBS and primarily followed the investigation headed by Dale Cooper into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). It quickly garnered a cult following for Lynch’s unique brand of surrealism, its unsettling tone, and campy humor. After a low-rated second season, CBS cancelled the series in 1991. The next year, Lynch directed the film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,” another continuation of the series which followed the last seven days of Laura Palmer’s life. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1992 to negative reviews, but critical reception has turned positive in subsequent years.
The “Twin Peaks” revival will air on Showtime sometime in 2017.
