Prophecy foretold

This morning at 11:30AM — the same time that FBI Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) first entered the town of Twin Peaks — both David Lynch and Mark Frost announced (via Twitter) that Twin Peaks is returning for a nine-episode run on Showtime in 2016. Production is set to begin next year.

But Twin Peaks was always supposed to return in 2016 — or to be specific, June 10th, 2016. That's the original broadcast date for Twin Peaks' season two finale, where Laura Palmer (a key figure, for those who don't know the show) told Cooper that she'd see him again in 25 years. The new teaser actually begins with a clip from seconds before Palmer utters that line.

If you want to see it for yourself, recorded backwards and then "reversed" to make it sound very surreal, start at about the three-minute mark in the video above.
