‘Twin Peaks; to Return on Showtime in 2016

Cult classic television show Twin Peaks originally aired on ABC from 1990-1991 and was by and large one of the strangest television shows to ever make it onto a network. Set in a small Pacific Northwest town, the melodrama's first season revolved around the murder of a popular teenage girl, Laura Palmer, but quickly expanded to include the strange and supernatural.

Though short-lived, Twin Peaks had a lasting impression on the television landscape. It's strange and creepy style went on to influence some of the most critically-acclaimed shows such as The X-Files and even newly-lauded True Detective and Fargo.

Originally starring a young Kyle MacLachlan and created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, Showtime announced that it's bringing back Twin Peaks in 2016 for nine episodes with Lynch directing every single one. It will be set in the present day and continue the mysteries previously established in the series. So far there is no official word on which original cast members will be back.
