“I’ll see you again in 25 years,” Laura Palmer told Agent Dale Cooper in a dream.
Now, nearly a quarter of a century after the series went off the air, Showtime is gearing up for a return to “Twin Peaks.” As part of the network’s TCA (Television Critics Association) panel, Showtime released a new piece of Twin Peaks teaser art that you can check out in full in the gallery viewer below.
Showtime confirmed that production on the new “Twin Peaks” will begin this fall with the new episodes slated to air in 2016.
“Shooting starts in September,” the official Showtime Twitter account posted. “The donut truck is loaded late August. A coffee cup will indeed come through a window.”
“[G]oing back to visit Dale Cooper again is very exciting,” McLachlan told ComingSoon.net in a interview earlier this year. “He’s one of the great characters.”
