Update (6/21/16, 4:21 Pm): Flatiron Books public-relations director Marlena Green has reached out on Twitter with the following correction: Hi @HitFixChris @TwinPeaksArchve The Secret History of Twin Peaks is not a tie-in edition to the series, new or old. Thanks! — Marlena Bittner (@lenabitts) June 21, 2016 Original Story: Not much has been known about Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost’s upcoming tie-in novel The Secret History of Twin Peaks up to this point, but thanks to an abstract made public by the book’s French publisher we now know the basic synopsis of the tome, which is being eagerly awaited by fans of the soon-to-be-rebooted cult TV series. Here’s the translated copy, courtesy of fansite Welcome to Twin Peaks: Twenty-five years [after Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer,] the FBI gets a hold of a box from an anonymous source.

With the now-retired Michael Ontkean declining to reprise the role of Sheriff Harry Truman in David Lynch and Mark Frost’s forthcoming Twin Peaks revival, the door was left open for another actor to pin on the badge: Robert Forster, a.k.a the man who turned down the very same role 25 years ago due to a prior commitment. Now, in a new interview with Moviefone to promote his role in London Has Fallen, the Oscar nominee is speaking out about his involvement in the series for the first time: “Well now, first of all, I am under compulsion to not speak about that role. I can now say they've announced the fact that I'm in the picture -- and 216 other cast members. What a big cast! David Lynch, what a good guy he is. He wanted to hire me for the original, 25 years ago, for a part, and I was committed to another guy for a pilot that never went. So I didn't do the original "Twin Peaks," which would have been a life-changer. It's a gigantic hit if you remember those years, a phenomenon. But I didn't do that.” Forster goes on to note that he did ultimately end up working with Lynch on Mulholland Drive -- in which he played the role of Detective Harry Knight -- an experience that made him jump at the chance to reteam with the director on Twin Peaks Season 3: “I got a call from my agents and they said, David Lynch is going to call you. When he called me five minutes later, he said, ‘I'd like you to come and work with me again.’ And I said, ‘Whatever it is David, here I come!’” You can read the full interview here. Twin Peaks is slated to premiere on Showtime in the second quarter of next year. »

David Lynch and Mark Frost's strict code of silence has made news on the Twin Peaks revival tough to come by, but here's something, at least: the show will premiere in the "second quarter" of 2017 (i.e. sometime in April, May, or June). That's according to Showtime president David Nevins, who also noted during a conference call with reporters that Lynch is currently editing the series' third season, which wrapped principal photography back in April. Twin Peaks originally aired on ABC between 1990 and 1991 before being picked up by Showtime for an extremely-belated Season 3. Original cast members set to return for the revival include Kyle McLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Madchen Amick, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie and Dana Ashbrook. [Vulture] »

By my calculation, the CW's live-action Archie Comics series Riverdale is effectively the ten bazillionth TV show to be compared to Twin Peaks over the last 25 years, and in this instance that comparison is being fueled by some of the cast members themselves. But how similar are they, really? While the Riverdale trailer screened at the upfronts in New York today hasn't yet been made available for viewing online, descriptions of the promo have popped up on various websites, providing us with a bit more context. From what I can gather so far, here are all the things Riverdale shares in common with David Lynch and Mark Frost's hugely-influential cult series: 1. Twin Peaks alum Madchen Amick (here starring as Betty's mother Alice); 2. An (at least outwardly) idyllic small-town setting; 3. A Lynchian quest to plumb the dark depths lurking beneath said small-town setting ("Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, »

Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost will publish a new book in October, The Secret History of Twin Peaks, which uses one unknown character's dossier to delve into the mysterious, fictional town. At an appearance at the Ojai Valley Museum last Sunday, Frost read an excerpt from the book, in which Margaret Lanterman — a.k.a. the Log Lady — eulogizes her friend Robert, who is another character featured in the book.
The speech is brief and touching. "There is much we cannot see," Frost said. "Air, for instance. Most of the time. »
The late, great David Bowie made my list of 11 major omissions from that massive 217-name cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival, and -- adding insult to injury -- it turns out the Thin White Duke almost reprised his role as disappearing FBI agent Philip Jeffries from prequel film Fire Walk With Me before dying of cancer earlier this year. That news was spilled by cast member Harry Goaz (reprising his role as Deputy Andy Brennan) in a new interview with the Dallas Morning News: Goaz says David Bowie, who had a small role in the 1992 film spinoff Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, was set to return to make a cameo, but it didn’t happen before the musician’s death this year. This will no doubt come as fairly crushing news for Bowie fans and especially for Twin Peaks fans, particularly given that Jeffries' bizarre appearance in »

With 217 names announced the other week, you would think that pretty much every surviving member of the cast of "Twin Peaks" is returning for the David Lynch-directed upcoming revival of the series at Showtime. Certainly a bunch of familiar names are all set to return.
But what about the absentees? EW sought out several major cast members who weren't on the list to return to see if they would be coming back. Piper Laurie, who played plotting mill owner Catherine Martell, responded with the following quote:
"I made it very clear to David and the team that I would be delighted to come back. I had a fantastic time on the original and won lots of awards. I'm surprised and I have no idea why I haven't been called back. I did send a note to David that I would be delighted to return, but I think most of »

One of the most striking omissions on last month's massive, 217-name cast list for the Twin Peaks revival was Piper Laurie, who deliciously played the devious Catherine Martell (as well as "Mr. Tojamura") on both seasons of the original series. While some speculated that Laurie's age was a factor in her absence (she's now 84), in a new interview with EW the actress states that she actively lobbied to return but ultimately wasn't invited back. Yes, that is a real sentence, and no, I don't get it either. “I made it very clear to David and the team that I would be delighted to come back. I had a fantastic time on the original and won lots of awards. I’m surprised and I have no idea why I haven’t been called back,” she told EW. “I did send a note to David that I would be delighted to return, »

What a way to start off the week! The formidable cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival series was revealed this morning, and man, is it a doozy. In addition to boasting such key returning players as Kyle MacLachlan (Dale Cooper), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), there are a number of surprising A-listers in the mix including Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. On the downside, a not-insignificant number of cast members from both the original series and the 1992 prequel film Fire Walk with Me are completely absent from the list. Where, for instance, is Lara Flynn Boyle (or Moira Kelly, for that matter)? Michael Ontkean? Piper Laurie? Joan Chen? Anyone from the mill? (Literally, there is no one from the mill.) So while I'm thankful that most of the major players are back in action, I can't help but »

We're still a long way from David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" revival, which isn't set to air on Showtime until 2017, but there is still a lot to talk about. It was just over a week ago that Go For Locations — who tweet about production and location news — said that filming had wrapped on the "first 2 seasons" of "Twin Peaks." Of course, that set off a frenzy of speculation that we're getting even more than we bargained for, with chatter only increasing when the post was deleted, and the account started protecting their tweets. Meanwhile, casting has seen also seen as much rumor as official word, with Lynch and co. cagey about who will be coming back, and which new faces will be arriving. Well, now we know. Showtime, David Lynch and Mark Frost has released the official cast list for "Twin Peaks" and it's massive. Running 217 names long, it's a lot to pore over, »
