We already knew that the cast for David Lynch’s Twin Peaks revival on Showtime was going to be incredible a few months ago, when Kyle MacLachlan and several other members of the original cast were confirmed to be returning, along with notable new additions like Naomi Watts, Ashley Judd, and more.

Turns out though, it just got even better.

Deadline revealed the entire cast for the new series online today, in conjunction with the revival series wrapping principal photography. Basically, prepare to have your mind be blown, because I cannot hype this cast up enough:

TWIN-PEAKS-CAST-1_1200_1553_81_s TWIN-PEAKS-CAST-2_1200_1553_81_s

…. Wow.

So these new additions include Monica Belucci, David Duchovny (confirmed to return), Michael Cera, David Koechner, Trent Reznor, Eddie Vedder, Tom Sizemore, Sara freakin’ Paxton, Matthew Lillard, Jim Belushi, and more. That’s not even to mention the already announced cast members like the previously-mentioned Watts, Judd, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Amanda Seyfried, and more.

Is there any particular reason for both Nine Inch Nails‘ Reznor or Pearl Jam‘s Vedder to be on this list? Honestly, I have no idea. But I’m 100% okay with it. Which raises a very important question: is the Twin Peaks revival going to go down as having the best cast in television history? Answer: I don’t know. It’s up there, but at the very least, it might just be the strangest.

The Twin Peaks revival will air on Showtime next year.
