“Twin Peaks‘” journey back into the red room will begin on Sunday, May 21, at 9/8c, with a two-hour premiere, TVLine is reporting out of the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
All told, the revival will consist of 18 hours, Showtime president and CEO David Nevins announced, while also revealing that, immediately following the two-hour opener, Episodes 3 and 4 will be available On Demand and via Showtime’s streaming platform.
“We’ve seen the whole thing… and the version of ‘Twin Peaks’ you’re going to see is the pure-heroin version of David Lynch,” Nevins said. “I’m very excited to put that out.”
The surreal drama, which aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, followed FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (to again be played by Kyle McLachlan) as he investigated the curious murder of a homecoming queen in the sleepy town of Twin Peaks, Wash.
The revival’s cast list features the return of several actors from the original series (including MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Madchen Amick, Sheryl Lee and David Duchovny) as well as a staggering amount of new faces (including Enlightened‘s Laura Dern, Arrested Development‘s Michael Cera, The Thorn Birds‘ Richard Chamberlain, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr).
