News broke in October 2014 that David Lynch's beloved '90s pseudo-soap opera/literal horror show "Twin Peaks" was being revived by Showtime for a run of new episodes in 2016 (now 2017). And shortly after that, the mood got a bit grimmer when Lynch parted ways with the production over budget concerns. But then he came back!
Now it's almost 2016, and we're due for a proper check-in with just what exactly a "Twin Peaks" revival will actually look like. And Showtime delivered it on Friday via a minute-long teaser that'll have you ordering a killer slice of cherry pie at the Double R Diner.
"Location sometimes becomes a character," narrator Michael Horse (aka Deputy Hawk) says in the video, guiding us through a slew of strikingly Pacific Northwestern natural imagery. "There are 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."
Much like Agent Cooper's oddly endearing idiosyncrasies. And the bizarre, cheesy, amazing original score from Angelo Badalamenti.
"It's almost like being in a moving painting," Horse says as we get our first look at the new/old iconic Twin Peaks town sign.
The fact that we've still got an entire year to wait before we can actually see what the heck is going on in the town of Twin Peaks once again isn't particularly great. But that gives plenty time to rewatch the series -- especially all the weird stuff that goes down in Season 2.
Also, the very end of the teaser makes it clear that all the awful, horrible, supernatural things that "Twin Peaks" wrought in its first run are due for a sweet, scary return. Watch with caution, especially if you've got a hot beverage in your hand.
