We knew it was coming in 2017. But we may now have an official date.
In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve never actually watched “Twin Peaks,“ so the excitement of it returning after nearly 30 years is mostly lost on me. Mind you, I’m excited that longtime fans of the show are excited, and I fully understand how cool this is, I just have no idea what I’m really talking about when I’m talking about “Twin Peaks.” Just being honest. You deserve honesty!
Now that that’s out of the way, I do bring some pretty exciting news. As reported by the website Welcome to Twin Peaks, a 2017 promotional calendar sent out by Showtime seems to indicate that the new episodes of “Twin Peaks” will begin on April 30th, 2017. On the calendar, seen below, a “Welcome to Twin Peaks” graphic is placed on that date; furthermore, the theme for the entire month of May is “Twin Peaks,” so it would make sense that several of the episodes would be airing in that month. Then again, this could be a case of fans reading too much into nothing at all.
We’ll let you decide.
Another recent rumor was that the “Twin Peaks” revival would be shown off for the very first time at Sundance this month, but it didn’t take long for co-creator Mark Frost to shoot that down.
