The X-Files isn’t the only 90s cult show coming back to our television screens. Twin Peaks isn’t set to return until 2017, but that hasn’t stopped Showtime from releasing a minute-long clip showcasing the show in production.
Michael Horse, who portrayed Deputy Hawk in the original series, narrates the trailer saying: “Location sometimes becomes a character. There’s a lot of holy places up here, a lot of sacred places. I can’t put my finger on how I would describe it, it just touches something in the psyche, it’s almost like being in a moving painting.”
Whilst Horse narrates, we’re given footage of seminal landmarks of the show and the timely unavailing of the new sign for those entering the small town of Twin Peaks.
The only star of the original series confirmed to be returning is Kyle MacLachlan, who portrayed Special Agent Dale Cooper in the original series. Michael Horse also seems to have been confirmed as a returning cast member through his vocal appearance in this teaser.
Other stars thought to return in the new series include Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), Madchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Everett McGill (Ed Hurley), Wendy Robie (Nadine Hurley), Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne) and – albeit rumoured – David Duchovny (Denise/Dennis Bryson).
The revival series is written and produced by series creators and exectutive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost, with all episodes to be directed by Lynch.
Twin Peaks was a supernatural mystery cult show that ran for only two seasons (1990-1991) and focused on the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, and the subsequent investigation into her death by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.
