As you can imagine, I’m sitting here stunned. As much as you are.
Twin Peaks returns. 2016. Showtime. 9 episodes, co-written by David Lynch and Mark Frost, all directed by David Lynch.
Kyle MacLachlan likely to return as Special Agent Dale Cooper.
According to an interview with Mark Frost, this has been in the works for almost three years. The exciting thing is, clearly a lot of thought has gone into this. While I feel some trepidation, I also feel incredible excitement.
If you’re a SiriusXM subscriber, I’ll be on the Ward & Al show today at 3 pm on Canada Talks 167 to discuss this amazing turn of events.
In the meantime, here’s the video that announced the return. The description reads:
