After being super coy on Twitter earlier this month, David Lynch and Mark Frost have confirmed that Twin Peaks will return in 2016, more than 25 years after the show first premiered on ABC, in a limited series run for Showtime. (Our guess is June 10th, 2016, as the prophecy foretold.) Lynch will direct all episodes, and both Lynch and Frost will handle writing. According to Deadline, the new Twin Peaks with be set in the present day and will provide answers to some of the long-standing (seriously, over two decades) questions.

No word on if Kyle MacLachlan will return in the (lead) role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, but #damngoodcoffee is inspired by one of his most memorable lines. We'd be damn surprised if he doesn't have at the very least a cameo. (Update: looks like he's back!)

Twin Peaks first debuted on ABC April 8, 1990, a unique blend of the surreal and supernatural. It was a critical darling and had a huge audience before taking a fall after resolving the show's big mystery halfway through season two. Both seasons are available for streaming on Netflix and Hulu. The poorly-received 1992 prequel film Fire Walk With Me is reportedly available on Redbox Instant Video (and that's about it).

And now, the most relevant Twin Peaks GIF for this moment. You're welcome:
