“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.
The first two episodes will premiere back to back on Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Immediately following, Episodes 3 and 4 will then be available on Showtime Anytime and Showtime On Demand, before airing the following week.
