1 January 12th, 2016 Showtime CEO David Nevins Reveals TWIN PEAKS Revival To Premiere Early 2017!


Well, at least we are getting more clarity!  Tuesday at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Showtime’s CEO David Nevins revealed that the cult classic revival of Twin Peaks is set to have its TV premiere sometime in early 2017.  Previously, the delivery of the quirky nighttime soap was slated for “sometime in 2017″ on the cable network.

Nevins revealed to reporters: “I’m excited to share that David Lynch (Creator, Twin Peaks) is more than halfway through shooting schedule, and it will premiere in the first half of 2017.”

Twin Peaks, which originally aired for two seasons beginning in 1990, focused on Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) investigating the murder of Laura Palmer.

In addition, to the news of an early 2017 premiere date, TV Line revealed on Monday that none other than Laura Dern has joined the revival cast.  While no word on who Dern will play, a theory has surfaced that she might take on the role of Cooper’s never-before-seen-secreatary Diane!  Fans of the motion pictues of David Lynch know that Dern is one of his actresses, having appeared in Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and Inland Empire.

    So excited! Loving all the casting I’ve read about so far – glad that they are adding a bunch of interesting new characters in addition to the usual suspects. Laura Dern will fit right in. She was phenomenal in Inland Empire (a criminally underrated film). Hoping very much that Grace Zabriskie will reprise her role as Mrs. Palmer. She was also in Inland Empire along with Laura Dern, playing a very haunting character.
