For me, the TV event of 2017 is the return of Twin Peaks. The new series, which David Lynch has tried to get off the ground for some time, was shot last summer, but we still don’t know exactly when it’s going to be shown except that it will be some time in the first half of next year, and we know nothing whatsoever about plot. There was a brief behind the scenes teaser a short while back, and now Showtime have released a new teaser….though all it consists of is Lynch, in his role as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole, eatung a doughnut while a slowed down version of the theme music begins to play. It therefore tells us that Cole will definitely be back, but that’s it!
They really aren’t revealing much at all and in this day and age that’s got to be a good thing. Of course we do know that Lynch has directed all the episodes, has co-written them all with Mark Frost, and that a great many of the original cast members are returning along with a whole host of newcomers [though mostly for just one episode each it seems] including Jim Belushi, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper, Balthazar Getty, Monica Belucci, Tim Roth and Amanda Seyfried.
