Showtime released a trailer for the returning cult ’90s series Twin Peaks on Friday.

‘Twin Peaks’ Trailer Released

The cult classic ran for two seasons (1990-1991) and focused on the investigation into the murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a high school homecoming queen, by FBI detective Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan).

Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are all rumored to have been cast as new characters.

Original cast members said to be returning include Lee, Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Everett McGill (Ed Hurley), Wendy Robie (Nadine Hurley) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne).

MacLachlan is set to resume his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper. The president of the show’s new Showtime network, David Nevins, has said of the series’ cast: “You should be optimistic that the people that you want [back] will be there, and then there will be some surprises in addition.”

The new episodes were written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost.

In the trailer, actor Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk, says, “Location sometimes becomes a character. There’s a lot of holy places up here, a lot of sacred places.”

“I can’t put my finger on how I would describe it, it just touches something in the psyche, it’s almost like being in a moving painting,” Horse explains, as the trailer ends on the infamous “Welcome To Twin Peaks” welcome sign.

Twin Peaks is in production and is set to air on Showtime in 2017.
