Created by Lynch and Mark Frost, the original 1990-1991 series followed an FBI agent investigating the murder of a young woman in the town of Twin Peaks. The team behind the highly-anticipated revival has kept tight-lipped on what will happen now in the beloved town. Last month, the first images of the cast reunion were released. The photos revealed Kyle MacLachlan in his impeccable dark suit as Agent Cooper, Lynch in character as Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole, Peggy Lipton in her old blue waitress uniform as Norma Jennings, David Duchovny in full drag as Denise Bryson and Kimmy Robertson in a wacky sweater as Lucy, the Sheriff’s Department’s lovably quirky receptionist.
