If there’s one thing the 1990s TV series ‘Twin Peaks’ is fondly remembered for, it’s definitely doing things in an “out of the ordinary” type of way. A surreal, supernatural, dark-comedy type of “anti-soap opera,” the original series lasted for only two seasons but has found a major cult-status following since. Scheduled to reappear next month on Showtime, the series has dropped four new teaser videos.
Sadly, these videos don’t feature any footage from the new series – but that’s to be expected from as quirky and secretive a creator as David Lynch. Instead, the videos are “brain teasers” – can you crack the codes? (If not, just click each video’s YouTube button, where you can see many users explaining things in detail in the comments section.)
Twin Peaks is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by David 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 Special Agent Dale Cooper.
Widely considered one of the most groundbreaking and influential broadcast series of all time, Twin Peaks 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 Special 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. Twenty-five years later, the story continues…
The new season of ‘Twin Peaks’ premieres May 21, 2017 on Showtime.
