Entertainment Weekly latest issue is a “Twin Peaks” extravaganza, with three specially shot cover images and plenty of inside info about the iconic ’90s series’ upcoming revival.
The covers, which together form a tryptic of the show’s cast, was posted on the magazine’s official Twitter feed ahead of its print release on Friday.

In the EW article, showrunner David Lynch refers to the revival as “a feature film in 18 parts,” but remains resolutely cagy on its plot and characters, apparently reluctant to even confirm that returning actors will be reprising the same roles they played in the show’s first two series.
However, aside from some new first-look photos (including one of David Duchovny’s fan-favorite trans character, Denise Bryson,) the EW piece does reveal one intriguing tidbit: the new “Twin Peaks” takes place in several locations outside of the titular Washington-state lumber town, and was ‘filmed’ on digital camera over a “142-day shoot in various cities.”
The third season of “Twin Peaks” boasts 217 cast members, including series veterans such as Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Michael Horse, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Madchen Amick, Miguel Ferrer, David Duchovny and Lynch himself, along with newcomers Michael Cera, Richard Chamberlain, Laura Dern, Meg Foster, Ernie Hudson, Caleb Landry Jones, Ashley Judd, Jane Levy, Trent Reznor, Tim Roth, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Vedder and Naomi Watts.
“Twin Peaks” returns Sunday, May 21, at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a two-hour premiere on Showtime. Immediately after the premiere, subscribers will be able to access the third and fourth episodes on Showtime’s streaming platform and on Showtime On Demand.
