A new ‘Twin Peaks’ promo has arrived and it’s perfectly creepy
The hotly anticipated Showtime revival of the series likely won’t arrive until 2017, but in the meantime, they’re giving fans a few frames of creepy goodness. And when we say a “few” we mean it: the clip is a mere 15 seconds long, and it’s nothing you haven’t seen before.
According to The Verge, the teaser aired during the season premiere of Homeland Sunday night. It features footage from the original 1990-1991 series, which aired on ABC. The clip highlights the “Man From Another Place” played by Michael J. Anderson, during a sequence that occurs in the dreams of Agent Dale Cooper, played by Kyle MacLachlan. It’s replete with red hues, strobes, and vaguely disturbing dance moves.
Showtime’s revival of the beloved series was originally announced in a similar fashion a year ago, with a brief clip that features Sheryl Lee’s Laura Palmer. At the time, nine new episodes were slated for a 2016 release to coincide with the show’s 25th anniversary, and we rejoiced.
Then in April, Lynch left the show, sharing on Twitter that: “After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done.” The show’s stars (and, honestly, the rest of the world) begged him to reconsider. In May, he returned to the project, with Showtime announcing that there would be more than the originally planned nine hours.
The new series will not be a remake; instead, it will take place 25 years after the original story. MacLachlan, who won a Golden Globe for his performance on the original series, is slated to return.
The revival will also feature new actors including Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard. To this, we say YAS.
We have a long way to go until 2017 so we hope Showtime throws us some more teaser-y goodness (maybe new footage soon please?); in the meantime, though, we can always binge the original series a few (more) times.
