In the final episode of Twin Peaks' original run, Laura Palmer told Agent Cooper that they would see each other again in twenty-five years. And it seems that reunion will be just a little late. According to The Wrap, Showtime president David Nevins announced today that the show's revival will premiere "somewhere" in the second quarter of 2017.
The revival series was announced in 2014, but a protracted negotiation process between Showtime and co-creator David Lynch led to a delay in filming. Production commenced last Fall and Nevins said Lynch is currently editing that material.
Kyle MacLachlan returns as Special Agent Dale Cooper, who presumably spent the last couple of decades in the seemingly idyllic town of Twin Peaks, Washington. The new show will feature returning characters like Sherilyn Fenn's Audrey Horn and new actors, like Jennifer Jason Leigh, who may be playing the mysterious Judy. But with other details still closely guarded, it is unclear how idyllic the town may be twenty-five (or twenty-seven) years on.
