Twin Peaks trailer shows the cult series in production – watch

The series is due to return to screens in 2017

Fans can return to the foggy north-west American location of David Lynch’s cult 90s series Twin Peaks, in the brand new trailer shared today (December 18).

The critically acclaimed supernatural mystery show ran for two series from 1990-1991 and focused on the investigation into the murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a high school homecoming queen, by FBI detective Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan).

Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are all rumoured to have been cast as new characters, while original cast members said to be returning include Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Everett McGill (Ed Hurley), Wendy Robie (Nadine Hurley) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne).

Kyle MacLachlan is confirmed to be returning in the new series as Special Agent Dale Cooper. The president of the show’s new Showtime network, David Nevins, has said of the series’ cast: “You should be optimistic that the people that you want [back] will be there, and then there will be some surprises in addition.”

The new episodes were written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost, and they will all be directed by David Lynch.

Speaking in the trailer, original actor Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk, says, “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.” See the new footage below:
