Even though the long-awaited return of cult TV show Twin Peaks is only a few weeks away, until now we have seen very little actual footage from the new season. Last week, new shots of the town were released, and now we have a short teaser that reveals some of the key characters as they now appear.
The video includes Kyle McLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, Everett McGill as “Big” Ed Hurley, Grace Zabriskie as Sarah Palmer, Michael Horse as Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill, and Harry Goaz as Deputy Andy Brennan. It also features Harry Dean Stanton as Carl Rodd, a character that appeared in the prequel movie Fire Walk With Me. Check it out below:
The new season is set to premiere with a two-part episode on Sunday, May 21 at 9 PM ET/PT. Showtime subscribers will be able to watch the next two episodes immediately afterwards on the network’s streaming service.
The following week, Episodes 3 and 4 will air on Showtime, before settling into a single episode a week until the two-part finale in September. This will air from 8-10 PM on Sunday, September 3.
The show’s co-creator, David Lynch, has directed all 18 of the new episodes. Several teasers for the season have been released over the past few months. These include one that compiled the many moments the characters have enjoyed coffee, while another showed Lynch, in character as Gordon Cole, snacking on a donut. In addition, we saw composer Angelo Badalamenti performing the show’s haunting music, plus a look at some on-set footage.
Disclosure: Showtime is a division of CBS, which is GameSpot’s parent company.
