This is a good day for movie lovers, as Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” project is finally showing promising updates. The show will be filled with the insanely thrilling charm that only David Lynch can bring to the screen, as he will be directing the series himself. The upcoming adaptation will feature a 18-episode season that is set to continue the action from the 90’s series, by bringing it up to date, 25 years later.
While it has been unclear for a long time how much would David Lunch be implicated exactly in the 2016 rendition of Twin Peaks, fans can rest assured now, as the writer-director has confirmed his full involvement in the project. He even wrote a brilliantly ambiguous tweet about it, that got fans extremely excited about Showtime’s version of the show.
What sets the 2016 show apart from the previous revival attempts that have epically failed to rise up to the power of the initial versions of the TV-shows and films that they were trying to recreate is precisely the fact that Showtime’s Twin Peaks is not a remake. It revives the story by taking the audience to 2016’s Twin Peaks in a natural, unforced manner, as it portrays the future adventures of the characters.
The 2016 series represents an actual sequel to the 90’s classic, and what makes it truly mind-blowing is the fact that it brings back its initial cast to continue the story of the main characters 25 years later both in the film and in real life. Kyle MacLachlan is coming back to play Special Agent Cooper, the gorgeous Sheryl Lee is returning as the mysterious Laura Palmer and Ray Wise will play the deliciously creepy Leland Palmer, thus bringing back the iconic characters that have made Twin Peaks famous in the 1990’s.
Among other big names returning to the series are Sherilyn Fenn, Lara Flynn Boyle and Madchen Amick, thus assuring that the main cast will be there to continue the story that that has kept audiences to the edge of their seats wondering what David Lynch will think of next.
Angelo Badalamenti, the creator of the epic opening credits song, that has made its way into thriller classic hall of fame, will also be joining the 2016 crew, to the fans’ delight. He promises a chilling soundtrack, that is bound to transport fans right back to the Twin Peaks they all know and love.
So, with the genius David Lynch directing it, with the entire main cast returning to show us exactly what their characters look like 25 years later and with the same amazing songwriter creating the series’ soundtrack, Showtime’s Twin Peaks has all the chances possible to make it big.
Initially, it was set to have 9 episodes only, but now the fans get an 18-episode experience into the divinely twisted mind of David Lynch, the man behind cult classics like “Mulholland Drive” and “Blue Velvet”.
It remains to be seen how exactly Twin Peaks will look 25 years later, but it promises to be nothing short of amazing, with such a wonderful cast and crew behind it. So, fans, prepare yourself for your journey back to Twin Peaks, because it’s bound to be even more insanely fantastic than it used to be back in 1990.
