As previously reported on AAA, David Lynch’s cult drama Twin Peaks is set to return in 2017 – and now a teaser trailer for the new series has surfaced online. You can watch it below.
Sherilyn Fenn is to reprise her role as troubled femme fatale Audrey Horne in the reboot of Twin Peaks alongside Kyle MacLachlan, who returns as FBI Agent Dale Copper. The cast also includes returning actors like Ray Wise, Miguel Ferrer, and David Duchovny.
Michael Cera, Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried will also appear, while Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are all rumoured to have been cast as new characters.
Also new to the show are musicians Sky Ferreira, Eddie Vedder, Trent Reznor and Sharon Van Etten.
Before Twin Peaks returns to the screen, The Secret History of Twin Peaks, a book by the show’s co-creator, Mark Frost, will be released on October 18 via Flatiron Books.
The book is described as a “vastly layered, wide-ranging history” of the cult show, with the 368-page novel reportedly acting as a sequel to the first series, detailing all the missing plot points of the last 26 years.
Meanwhile, Lynch and Frost have written one long script for the new series, which Lynch will film as one continuous movie before editing it down into individual episodes.
Although Showtime originally commissioned nine new episodes of Twin Peaks, the new season is expected to run much longer.
Back in April 2015, Lynch revealed that he had pulled out of the revival series – but the following month the oddball auteur announced that he was back on board to direct the new episodes.
The new Twin Peaks is set 25 years after the show ended, but continues the story.
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.”
