‘Twin Peaks’ Teaser Brings Back a Familiar Face

I don’t think anyone really knows what to expect for sure from Showtime’s upcoming revival of Twin Peaks. The original series from Mark Frost and David Lynch was one of many shows that were cancelled too soon, and has cultivated a large, and dedicated fan following in the years since its original TV run. However, with the show’s story finally about to be continued next year, and most of the creative team returning, what exactly should fans be expecting from the revival?

The usual strange tone and storytelling technique from Lynch and Frost is likely a given, and the return of Kyle Maclachan is comforting as well, but it’ll be interesting to see how the creators plan on addressing the time gap between the original series and the revival. We don’t really know how or if they will even address it, but honestly, I hope that Showtime and the creative team keep it that way. At least, for a little while.

A new teaser for the third season has premiered, but you have been warned, it is the definition of a teaser. Check it out below:

The trailer doesn’t show much unsurprisingly and was most likely released as a reminder for fans of the unique vibe and tone of the original series. It’s mostly comprised of old footage from the show, focusing heavily on Michael J. Anderson’s Man From Another Place. While there has been no word on Anderson’s possible return to the series, it’s possible that fans might see this strange little man return to the series, and this trailer certainly makes it seem like his role in the show’s story isn’t done. Who knows, maybe fans might finally get some answers regarding the Man’s true identity? Considering how David Lynch and Mark Frost usually answer questions though, something tells me they won’t make it easy for their fans.

This trailer also comes along with the announcement (via TV Line) that actor Peter Sarsgaard has officially been cast in the new season in an unknown role. He joins actors Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried, Balthazar Getty, and Kyle MacLachlan, who will be reprising his role as Agent Dale Cooper. Not much else is known about the new season at this point, and considering how little this trailer offered information-wise, I don’t think anyone will really know what to expect from the show’s story until Lynch and Frost want them to.

Twin Peaks Season 3 will air in 2016.
