Well, it’s short but sweet – and I don’t think fans would want it any other way. The hotly-anticipated return of ‘Twin Peaks’ after over 25 years off the air has lots of people intrigued. Series creator David Lynch has returned to pick up the story of the two-season supernatural drama, and as was to expected given Lynch’s eclectic history, information on what audiences can expect has been hard to come by.
This trailer, in fact, is the first to give us any actual footage from the new series, following on the tail of a trailer last week that provided the actual first “still shot” looks at the new show. The series will be an 18-hour affair, with the premiere coming in a few weeks but the remainder of the season being held until August.
So, who do we see in the trailer? We get glimpses of returning characters such as Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), Deputy Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz), Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill (Michael Horse), Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill), Carl Rodd (Harry Dean Stanton), and Sarah Palmer (Grace Zabriskie). Take a look for yourself below!
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…
‘Twin Peaks’ returns to the TV airwaves with a two-hour premiere on Showtime on May 21, 2017.
