The news that Twin Peaks would come back to television hit late last year, with creators David Lynch and Mark Frost confirming that they'd both be involved in each of the miniseries' nine episodes. The new series will be set in the present day, and it promises to close some of the show's many loose ends and answer it's spectacularly far-out questions.
Production is set to start this year, with the premiere date set for 2016 around the show's 25th anniversary.
