Some things never change in Twin Peaks, apparently! Same population as 25 years ago, same theme music, the iconic Twin Peaks sign, and some evil lurking in the final seconds of this just released promo from Showtime! The cable network is teasing its 2017 offering of the revival of the quirky ABC soapy series that is currently in production.

It touches something in the psyche. It’s almost like being in a moving painting.” Next after the Twin Peaks sign is unveiled, there is someone hazy in the video where the music changes to eerie. Is it Leland Palmer/Killer BOB (Ray Wise) or could it be David Lynch himself?

Currently in production, Twin Peaks is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by David Lynch.

The town’s sheriff welcomed the help of FBI agent Dale Cooper, who came to town to investigate the case. As Cooper conducted his search for Laura’s killer, the town’s secrets were gradually exposed. The mystery that ensued set off an eerie chain of events that plunged the inhabitants of Twin Peaks into a darker examination of their very existence. Twenty-five years later, the story continues…”
