The revival of “Twin Peaks” will premiere in the first half of 2017, Showtime president David Nevins revealed Tuesday at TCA.

Nevins also said that creator David Lynch is more than halfway through his shooting schedule on the highly-anticipated return of his cult 90s television series.

Currently in production, “Twin Peaks” is written and produced by series creators and executive producers Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch.

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.

The reboot hit a snag in April, when Lynch temporarily dropped out of the project. But a rally of fan and cast support got him to return.

In addition to MacLachlan, the reboot welcomes back original series stars Dana Ashbrook, Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee.
