Showtime raises Twin Peaks

Showtime is going back for some more cherry pie after announcing a new series of cult classic Twin Peaks.



The US premium cable network has ordered a nine-episode run, which will be set in the present day but continue the original story of the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town who were left stunned after their homecoming queen Laura Palmer is murdered. Then as an FBI agent arrives to help the sheriff solve the case, more of the town’s secrets are exposed.

Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce every episode.

The show will begin production next year and air in 2016 – the 25th anniversary of when it last aired. It originally ran for two seasons on ABC between 1990 and 1991.

Lynch and Frost both posted clues to the announcement on their Twitter pages:
