And we can’t help it. We’re feeling the feels, as the kids (in 2009 used to) say.
That tagline. Chills.
But only if you’re familiar with the original, obviously. And even then, we think it’s a bit more exciting for those of us who watched the original in real time back in the day. It’s hard to overstate just how weird Twin Peaks was at the time, but we suppose there can no better illustration of that than its still-potent weirdness in 2017, at Peak Television.
It didn’t progress well, which is the way of experimental, boundary-pushing TV, but it exploded in front of half of America’s eyes in their living rooms back in the day. And we suspect the long time away from the story just might make a return all the more creatively fertile for the mind of David Lynch.
But we digress. Non-Gender Binary Press Release Spokespersyn has a few things they would like to say:
In honor of TWIN PEAKS Day, SHOWTIME has released dual posters for the new limited series, which will debut with a two-part premiere on Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on air, on demand and over the internet. One poster depicts Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), whose mysterious death sparked the TWIN PEAKS saga, while the other showcases series star Kyle MacLachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper.
Immediately following the premiere on SHOWTIME, subscribers will have access to the third and fourth parts, exclusively across the SHOWTIME streaming service, SHOWTIME ANYTIME® and SHOWTIME ON DEMAND®. In its second week, TWIN PEAKS will air the third and fourth parts back-to-back on SHOWTIME on May 28, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by single parts in subsequent weeks.
Directed entirely by David Lynch, the new SHOWTIME 18-part limited event series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. TWIN PEAKS is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.

We know we shouldn’t get our hopes up, but we’re excited. For now.
It is happening again.
