Just About Every ‘Twin Peaks’ Return Revealed, Plus a Trip to Vegas?
Showtime has only officially acknowledged that its 2017 Twin Peaks revival will feature Kyle MacLachlan’s return, even as a number of the former cast has seemingly signed on. Now, a new report details that many, many more past Twin Peaks regulars will appear in the new iteration, which will apparently spend some time in Vegas, among other tidbits.
Deadline brought together an extensive compilation of return details for Showtime’s new Twin Peaks iteration, in addition to the actors we’ve already heard about, even glimpsed on the Washington set.
Take with a grain of salt, as always, but feel free to add to the pile Ray Wise (Leland Palmer), Grace Zabriskie (Sarah Palmer), Peggy Lipton (Norma Jennings), Everett McGill (Ed Hurley), Wendy Robie (the one-eyed Nadine Hurley), James Marshall (James Hurley), Al Strobel (the one-armed Mike), Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Moran), Harry Goaz (Deputy Andy Brennan), Charlotte Stewart (Betty Briggs), Gary Hershberger (Mike Nelson), Jan D’Arcy (Sylvia Horne) and even Harry Dean Stanton (Carl Rodd).
Other details revealed suggest that Jennifer Jason Leigh could play the mysterious “Judy,” while Las Vegas is said to be a major setting for the revival. Intriguingly, Catherine Coulson may also have filmed scenes before her passing, reprising her role as the famous Log Lady, though its unclear if they’ll end up used.
David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost wrote the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Madchen Amick and Dana Ashbrook have all been rumored, along with Sheryl Lee, Michael Horse, Sherilyn Fenn, Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer and new additions Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
The original Twin Peaks saw Agent Dale Cooper arriving in the titular town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, only to find the mystery ran far deeper than he could ever expect, with a touch of the supernatural. The new iteration will pick up 25 years after the Season 2 finale in 1991, which saw MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper in a Black Lodge limbo.
Showtime may come forth with additional Twin Peaks details for 2017 soon, but what do we make of the latest details?
