Twin Peaks, under the guiding hand of director David Lynch, is finally coming back to television.
The long-awaited reboot will debut in the US on May 21 with a two-hour premiere episode. The limited event series will consist of 18 hours total.
The announcement was made on Monday by Showtime president and CEO David Nevins at the 2017 Television Critics Association winter press tour in California.
The new Twin Peaks is written and exec produced by original creators Lynch and Mark Frost. Lynch directed the entire 18-hour series, which picks up 25 years after the people of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The original show ran two seasons in 1990 and 1991.
Original star Kyle MacLachlan will return for the reboot, along with a huge cast of returning players and newcomers.
Nevins teased that the new version of Twin Peaks is the "pure heroin vision of David Lynch, and I am very excited to be putting that out."© RAW 2017 From left, Laura Dern, Kimmy Robertson, Madchen Amick, Kyle MacLachlan and Robert Forster attend the "Twin Peaks" panel at the Showtime portion of the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association press tour on Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, in Pasadena, Calif.
