Showtime took the stage at the currently running Television Critics Association previews with big news in the return of Penny Dreadful and Damn Fine news in the return of Kyle MacLachlan to Twin Peaks.
Showtime revealed Penny Dreadful, the Eva Green-starring, Victorian-era series which interweaves characters from iconic horror stories will return April 26th at 10 p.m.
Most excitingly however, Showtime brought out Twin Peaks star and longtime actor Kyle MacLachlan to announce his return to the Northwestern logging town. Twin Peaks will return to television in 2016 in a limited, nine-episode series from creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. The present day-set series will be written and produced by the two filmmakers, while Lynch will helm every episode.
MacLachlan arrived onstage in Pasadena with a cup of coffee and said, Im very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of Twin Peaks. May the forest be with you.
ComingSoon and Shock contributor Fred Topel is currently at the TCAs and tweeted, TWIN PEAKS creators have specifically promised closure. #Showtime #TCA15, possibly referencing the open ended, devastating note Season two ended on. Topel also writes, David Nevins says 25 years was the magic number for David Lynch. #TwinPeaks #Showtime #TCA15. Its likely the same for fans, enraptured by the below famous moment from Beyond Life and Death, that last episode of Twin Peaks.
What’s more, David Lynch has since tweeted out a photo of MacLachlan in his Cooper garb.
