Twin Peaks Is Really Actually Coming Back

by Rebecca Peterson

Laura Palmer is back from the dead.

Yes, we’ve been tempted and teased before. Director David Lynch is known for his mystery and misdirection, and ill-informed Twin Peaks enthusiasts have not been much more reliable. But today, Showtime announced that new, limited episodes of Twin Peaks will come out in 2016.

The original cult hit aired for two seasons from 1990-91, and has been available for your bulk consumption on Netflix. For those who have not yet fallen deeply, deeply in love with FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper or his damn good coffee, Twin Peaks follows the mysterious death of a popular teenager in a Washington state logging town. Naturally, things get a little supernatural. 

While little has been announced about what will happen in 2016, Showtime established that the continuation will take place in the present day and “continue the lore of the original series.” 

In the mean time, figure out which character you are, and cross your fingers that the Log Lady will be making an appearance. Here’s a sneak preview below!
