We don’t yet have a trailer, though we expect one really soon, but what we do have is the very first batch of stills from the brand new episodes!
The images come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, and they show original stars Mädchen Amick, Peggy Lipton, David Duchovny, David Lynch, Miguel Ferrer, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz and Michael Horse in character for the first time in 25 years. So if you’ve missed characters like Denise Bryson, Albert Rosenfield and Deputy Andy, these are sure to make you smile.
Check ’em out below. See and learn more over on EW.
“Twin Peaks” will return on Sunday, May 21, at 9/8c, with a two-hour premiere. The new David Lynch-directed episodes are set 25 years after the events of the original series.
All told, the revival will consist of 18 hours. Immediately following the two-hour opener, Episodes 3 and 4 will be available On Demand and via Showtime’s streaming platform.
The surreal drama, which aired on ABC from 1990 to 1991, followed FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (to again be played by Kyle MacLachlan) 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 Sherilyn Fenn, Madchen Amick, Sheryl Lee and David Duchovny) plus a bunch 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).
