Published

on

Cable network Showtime confirmed rumors that have been bouncing around the Internet for weeks that director David Lynch will be helming all nine episodes of a continuation of the Twin Peaks series twenty-five years after the original, slated to run in 2016.

According to Showtime, Lynch and partner Mark Frost will be the executive producers of the show, will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series, and that Lynch will direct every episode.

“Set in the present day, TWIN PEAKS will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers and a satisfying conclusion for the series’ passionate fan base,” Showtime said in a statement.

The original series, which ran from 1990-91, generated a large and devoted cult following and left television with many dangling plot threads and unexplained mysteries.

Twin Peaks followed the investigation of FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle McLachlan) into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, with an unsettling look at small town America.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
