David Lynch's cult drama is set to return in 2017
A teaser trailer for the comeback series of Twin Peaks has been posted online.
The clip features composer Angelo Badalamenti playing music from the show’s score, projected over a mysterious forest backdrop. A photo of the character Laura Palmer appears during the video. Watch it below.
In 2014, it was first announced that David Lynch’s cult show would return on Showtime. Earlier this year, it was reported that the revival series would be two seasons long.
The cast for the Twin Peaks reboot includes returning actors like Ray Wise, Miguel Ferrer, and David Duchovny.
New to the show are musicians Trent Reznor, Sky Ferreira, Eddie Vedder and Sharon Van Etten.
Actors Michael Cera, Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried will also appear. Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are all rumoured to have been cast as new characters.
In October, the show’s co-creator Mark Frost will release a new book called The Secret History Of Twin Peaks. Actors from the program, including Kyle MacLachlan, Russ Tamblyn, and others, will voice the audiobook.
Showtime CEO David Nevins revealed earlier this year that the first half of the new episodes will debut in the “first half of 2017”.
“I think it is quite possible we’re not going to do a traditional release pattern. I’ve had a couple conversations with David [Lynch],” Nevins said.
“But I want to embrace the unexpectedness of it, so I could definitely see longer episodes or in terms of this question of how do we release it linearly and how do we release it for people who want to stream it; maybe there’s something different between the two.”
