It’s still not much, but we have our first clear look at Showtime’s upcoming “Twin Peaks” revival from David Lynch.

To this point, most of what we’ve seen has been atmospheric: familiar places and classic clips, all through the lens of the 25 years that have passed since.

This is different.

Laura Palmer’s mother Sarah making her way through a grocery store. The legendary Harry Dean Stanton as Carl Rodd. Agent Dale Twinpeaking Cooper. It’s less than a minute, but if these half-dozen peeks into the returning cast don’t get you excited to return to Lynchville, not much else will.

Directed entirely by David Lynch, the new 18-part limited event series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. Watch the teaser below.
