Showtime reboot of David Lynch series to air in 2017
Showtime released the first teaser for the reboot of “Twin Peaks” on Friday.
While the full mystery awaits, fans can expect many familiar faces, including Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award nominee Kyle MacLachlan, who reprises his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper.
“Twin Peaks” aired on ABC from 1990-1991. After going off the air, the series developed a large cult following, leading Showtime to bring it back as a limited series.
The show followed the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town who were stunned after their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.
The town’s sheriff welcomed the help of FBI agent Dale Cooper, who came to town to investigate the case. As Cooper conducted his search for Laura’s killer, the town’s secrets were gradually exposed. The mystery that ensued set off an eerie chain of events that plunged the inhabitants of Twin Peaks into a darker examination of their very existence.
“Twin Peaks” is expected to air on Showtime in 2017.
