Stop Everything: Showtime Is Bringing Back ‘Twin Peaks’
Showtime is taking us back to Twin Peaks, Washington.
The network announced Monday via a video posted on their YouTube channel that it is resurrecting the ’90s cult classic title for a limited series, set to be written by original creators David Lynch and Mark Frost.
The 9-episode new installment will be set in the present day and debut in 2016. Lynch is set to direct. “Twin Peaks will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers for the series’ passionate fan base,” a release from the network said.

In an interview with TVLine, Frost said he’s not looking at the new episodes as a new season. “I’ve always said that Twin Peaks to me was like a novel we filmed every page of,” he said. “So this is more like we found another volume of the saga, and now we want to bring that to life too.”
The mystery drama, which ran for two seasons on ABC and is hailed for its trailblazing storytelling, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Showtime plans to re-air the first two seasons of Twin Peaks, in advance of the new episodes going on air in 2016.
This pretty much sums up our feelings:
