Watch the first trailer for David Lynch's 2017 Twin Peaks revival


When the long-awaited Twin Peaks revival arrives in 2017, expect location to play a big role. That’s the main takeaway of Showtime’s first look at the celebrated David Lynch drama, which the network dropped today. And in typical Twin Peaks fashion, the 50-second trailer is just as cryptic as you’d expect.

“Location sometimes becomes a character,” says narrator Michael Horse (as Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill), as the trailer opens to foggy background terrain. “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.” We then see workers unveiling a welcome sign for Twin Peaks, population 51,201 — before the screen cuts to static.

Much of the plot and characters in the revival are being kept under wraps, but we do know characters like Kyle MacLachlan (as FBI agent Dale Cooper) will be in the show’s new season. Many of the show’s other stars, including Sheryl Lee (as Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson), Madchen Amick (as Shelly Johnson), Dana Ashbrook (as Bobby Briggs), and Kimmy Robertson (as Lucy Moran) will likely appear in the revival, according to HitFix.

And while some characters will likely be played by other actors, Frost has said that the new season will definitely not be a reboot. “[It] will reflect the passage of time since viewers last checked in with key characters,” according to Variety last year.

The show originally aired on ABC in 1990 and 1991 before being cancelled due to low ratings, but it’s since become a cult favorite. Twin Peaks follows the case of homecoming queen Laura Palmer’s murder, as it reveals the town’s bigger secrets.

Lynch is expected to direct all episodes of the show’s upcoming season currently in production according to Variety.
