Will the Twin Peaks revival finally answer the question the series left hanging before it went off the air?
News about the revival thrilled fans who were hopeful for its comeback. It has been over 25 years since the cult series graced the small screen. Hence, their answered prayers when the announcement came.
Initial reports guessed it would arrive in April. However, the official premiere date for season 3 is on May 21.
What to Expect from Twin Peaks Revival
The Twin Peaks premiere is a feature length episode. Episodes 3 and 4 would be available on Showtime’s digital streaming service right after. Then succeeding episodes air weekly. Lynch reportedly insisted on this schedule, Wired reports.
No doubt, fans are curious about the plot for the revival. However, it appears the plot of the revival is a tightly guarded secret. Then again, the appearance of creator David Lynch at the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association press tour seemed to give some clues.
Twin Peaks cast veteran Kyle MacLachlan joined Lynch on the panel. The actor returns to reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Laura Dern and Robert Forster are new to the series. Albeit his cryptic replies, Lynch seemed to offer two ideas worthy of consideration according to the Los Angeles Times.
First, his love for the Twin Peaks pilot. Thus, the revival could carry on in the same mood. Second, it could finally shed light on Laura Palmer’s last days. Lynch had this to say when asked about her.
“Who killed Laura Palmer was a question that we did not ever really want to answer, and that Laura Palmer mystery was, like I said, the goose that laid these little golden eggs. And then at a certain point, we were told we needed to wrap that up, and it never really got going again after that,” Lynch said.
Initial Reports about Twin Peaks 2017
Cable network Showtime president David Nevins previously teased details about it. Moreover, he promised it would be 18 unforgettable hours for audiences to enjoy.
An initial report about Twin Peaks 2017 revealed Lynch did the entire season as a movie. He later cut it into episodes. Filming began in September 2015 and ended April 2016.
