The first behind-the-scenes look at the new Twin Peaks doesn’t offer any hints about the upcoming revival of the legendary series, but it does show cast members’ enthusiasm for the project.
“There’s nothing I can say to describe it,” Kyle MacLachlan says in the clip above. “It’s been absolutely wonderful.”
He adds, “We knew it was going to be something special. We just didn’t know in what form or how.”
Fans of the original 1990 series still don’t know. The groundbreaking series lasted just two seasons and a movie, but it is considered an influential piece of bizarre TV.
The new Showtime series picks up 25 years after the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer stunned inhabitants of the quaint northwestern town Twin Peaks.
MacLachlan returns as FBI Agent Dale Cooper. Other cast members from the original series appear in the teaser. Miguel Ferrer, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz, Dana Ashbrook and James Marshall share their thoughts. New cast members Jim Belushi, Amy Shiels, Robert Knepper and Chrysta Bell also tell fans what to expect—in the broadest of terms.
Series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost wrote and executive produced the new “Twin Peaks.” Lynch directs the entire season.
