TV - Twin Peaks


The long-awaited revival of Twin Peaks is a step closer as a US air-date is confirmed...

Season 3 will debut in the US on Showtime on Sunday, May 21st at 9 p.m.. The limited event series will consist of 18 hours in total, with a two hour premiere, two more back to back episodes the following week and single 1 hour episodes after that.

The announcement was made yesterday by Showtime president and CEO David Nevins at the 2017 Television Critics Association winter press tour, who said it was "the original social media show, the original discussion show before any of the tools for discussion and social media and fan engagement existed," and called it the “pure heroin vision of David Lynch." Gary Levine, Showtime's programming president, added "It is hard for us to fathom what 'Twin Peaks' in a social media era will be. We're looking forward to the ride."


Considered one of the most groundbreaking and influential broadcast series of all time, Twin Peaks followed the residents of a quaint northwestern town who were stunned when homecoming queen Laura Palmer was murdered. Twenty-five years later, the story continues...

There are many familiar faces among the 217 strong cast, including, of course, Kyle MacLachlan, reprising his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper. Twin Peaks is written by series creators David Lynch & Mark Frost, and directed entirely by David Lynch.
