“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.

According to Deadline Hollywood, MacLachlan would be back, reprising his role as FBI Agent Cooper.

"They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting Donald Trump to shut up," said Stephen Colbert as part of his debate wrap-up on Wednesday night.

"He brought a whole new meaning to white noise," the host quipped on "A Late Show."

"I don't know what Chris Wallace was supposed to do," said Colbert. "At the next debate, they should just give the moderator a button to bring on the slime. I'm not the only one who despised last night's debate, according to a CBS poll, of the people who watched it, 69 percent felt annoyed. Annoyed? Really, evidently, 'gouging out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon' was not an option."

‘Classic projection’: Mary Trump says the president was triggered when Biden called a policy ‘not smart’

President Donald Trump's niece Mary not only spent her life around the president and his family, but she also has the benefit of being a psychologist who could legitimately assess the life and mental health of her uncle.

Speaking to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, she explained that in one particular moment in the Tuesday evening debate, Trump seemed triggered by former Vice President Joe Biden's use of the phrase "not smart" in reference to a policy. Trump went off.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked after Biden insulted Trump's coronavirus plan as not being "smart."

"So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college," Trump continued, falsely claiming something Biden never said. "You didn't go to Delaware state. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Published

In a series of bizarre nonsequiturs in Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump unleashed on NBC News for covering a monster hurricane hitting Louisiana and Mississippi instead of talking about his friend nominating him for a Nobel Prize.

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his presidency, and like the ever-illusive Emmy Trump also hasn't won, the Nobel Prize has never been within his grasp. The Obamas were nominated for seven Emmys for a series of things they produced with Netflix. They won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for "American Factory."
