Now here’s a damn good idea for a reboot.
David Lynch‘s twisted classic “Twin Peaks” is being revived as a limited series by Showtime, with a premiere date slated for 2016.
Series creators Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the revival with Lynch on board to direct all episodes.
Lynch made the announcement via Twitter on Monday morning, linking to a brief video announcement of the reboot.
“Dear Twitter Friends… it is happening again,” Lynch wrote.
Lynch teased the return of the series last week via social media, writing, “Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee.”
The original series, which ran from 1990 to 1991 on ABC, starred Kyle MacLachlan as quirky FBI agent Dale Cooper, investigating the murder of a young woman in the titular, fictional Washington town.
And then it got weird. Real weird.
The revival will take place in present-day Twin Peaks, continuing the lore of the original series.
“What more can I say – ‘Twin Peaks’ with David Lynch and Mark Frost on Showtime in 2016!” Showtime president David Nevins said Monday. “To quote Agent Cooper, ‘I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.’”
“The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you,” Lynch and Frost added.
In advance of the revival, Showtime will air the first two seasons of the original series.
