Cult favorite TV series Twin Peaks is mainly about a very intuitive FBI agent chasing down a supernatural serial killer, but it’s best known for being incredibly, bafflingly strange. I mean, of course it is; it was created by David Lynch. To pass the time until show’s return on May 21, we counted our favorite WTF…
There are still several months to go before David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is back. Plenty of time to catch up on the original run of the show, and do so with a damn fine cup of coffee.
On Monday, we learned that Twin Peaks would return May 21 to kick off its 18-episode revival on Showtime. Today, we’ve got our first (very quick) glimpse at Kyle MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper, looking far more weathered than last we saw him. Is it the decades... or is it the Black Lodge? Or a bit of both?
FINALLY. This is huge news for Twin Peaks fans who have been dying for any solid info on the Showtime revival’s premiere date. Now we know: it’s May 21.
On Sunday, Showtime released a new teaser trailer for the revival of ‘90s art kid favorite Twin Peaks. In it, creator David Lynch can be seen eating a (glazed?) donut as FBI administrator Gordon Cole and, well, that’s about it.
There’s been no shortage of ways for Twin Peaks faithful to showcase their fandom over the years—a quick Etsy search will yield literally thousands of items inspired by the show. But with the show’s 2017 return to the airwaves, Showtime has opened its own Twin Peaks storefront, with some exclusive wares.
The much-anticipated return of Twin Peaks is creeping ever closer, but we haven’t learned too much about the production so far (appropriately, it’s been shrouded in secrecy). Today the show dropped a new Facebook video sharing a few small glimpses of what’s been brewing in David Lynch-land.
As if we couldn’t possibly be more excited for a return to Twin Peaks next year, here’s a minute of Angelo Badalamenti playing Laura’s theme from the original show to make the wait for more even more excruciating.
Showtime’s spooky Victorian drama Penny Dreadful had its season finale last night. Unbeknownst to fans, that was the series finale as well. “I can absolutely confirm it is really over, the end — that’s all she wrote,” creator John Logan announced; elsewhere, he noted that a three-season run was his intention from the…
In late April, we got the entire cast list for David Lynch’s reboot of Twin Peaks for Showtime. There were a lot of new additions, as well as familiar names who’d presumably be reprising their roles, like Kyle MacLachlan and Peggy Lipton. But fans were also left wondering why certain favorites had been left out.
Showtime’s Penny Dreadful returns May 1, and in recent months the gleefully grim series—which stars Eva Green and Josh Hartnett—has dropped a tantalizing handful of freaky/spooky/Satanic teasers. The full trailer for season three is here, and it’s all of the above ... times a zillion. The end of days, you say?
The new season of Penny Dreadful doesn’t begin until May 1, but Showtime has dropped a couple of new teasers that hint at what’s to come. Unsurprisingly, it’s darker than dark. Vanessa, who narrates both clips, claims she’s not frightened of evil, Satan, and so forth anymore. But maybe she should be?
As if to prove that this is really happening, Showtime released the first teaser for the Twin Peaks revival. It’s got Deputy Hawk (Michael Hoarse) extolling the virtues of the area, the theme song, and a requisite creepy moment.
In kind of a flip-flop of how these things usually unfold, Showtime’s Victorian England-set horror drama Penny Dreadful—which will unveil its third season in 2016—will jump from the screen to the page, courtesy of a Titan Comics series penned by the series’ scriptwriters.
Bad (or at least frustrating) news today for Twin Peaks fans: CBS Corp. chief Leslie Moonves said that the new, limited-run series—which has already been held up by David Lynch vs. Showtime pre-production issues—won’t be airing until 2017.
The era of à la carte TV may finally be here—ready or not. Today, you can officially stream Showtime over the internet, without a cable subscription, for $11 a month. You can get it through Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod, on a Roku, via Hulu, or through Sony’s PlayStation Vue—another cord-cutting service.
The a la carte TV options are expanding. If you’re a Hulu subscriber paying $8 per month, you can add Showtime for another $9 now, which is cheaper than Showtime’s recently announced $11 standalone option.
