Twin Peaks Returns As Showtime Limited Series October 6, 2014 Can you believe I have not watched a single episode of Twin Peaks? Well you probably do if you are under 25 – unless you became a fan of this iconic series on the late. Its pilot episode was first broadcast on April 8, 1990, on ABC and today it’s making a coming back with a new limited series on Showtime. The nine-episode series from its original creators, David Lynch (who is set to direct every episode) and Mark Frost will go into production in 2015 for a premiere in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of when the series finished its run on ABC. The new Twin Peaks will be set in the present day, more than two decades after the events in the first two seasons. It will continue the lore and story of the original series, with Lynch and Frost committed to providing long-awaited answers and, hopefully, a satisfying conclusion to the series. It is unclear which actors from the original series will be featured in the followup. Rumor is that star Kyle MacLachlan would be back, likely reprising his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper who was at the center of the show. The ABC series also featured some of Lynch’s favorite character actors, and it is likely that at least some of them will return. Leading to the 2016 debut of the Twin Peaks limited series, Showtime will re-air the first two seasons of the series, owned by parent CBS Corp.
