Showtime to Air New 'Twin Peaks' Episodes in 2016

Get ready for some damn good coffee one more time: nine new episodes of Twin Peaks have been picked up by Showtime, which will air the series revival in 2016. Announced by series co-creator and executive producer Mark Frost on Twitter, the new series will take place 25 years after the conclusion of the original, lining it up with the modern day and promises to provide "long-awaited answers and a satisfying conclusion for the series’ passionate fan base" as well as continue the mythology and lore of the original run.

Frost and his fellow series co-creator/executive producer David Lynch teased the possibility of a new Twin Peaks project on Twitter last week, as they both referenced the show on Twitter, saying, "That gum you like is going to come back in style," with the hashtag "#damngoodcoffee." The original series run ended in 1991, and a prequel feature film -- "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" -- was released by New Line in 1992.

Showtime released a short trailer for the upcoming series, which will likely continue the unique storytelling structure that became the series' trademark -- and gained it a passionate cult following in the modern era. There are no details available about casting -- including whether series star Kyle MacLachlan (who played Special Agent Dale Cooper) will return for the series' revival.
