Iconic TV show Twin Peaks set to return for brand new series

Iconic series Twin Peaks is to return for a brand new nine-episode series in 2016. 

The series, which was created by Mark Frost and David Lynch, originally aired 25 years ago and is now set to return for a limited run on US network Showtime in 2016, with Frost and Lynch once again at the helm. You can watch the official announcement of its return below, which is typically mystical. 

According to Deadline, Lynch and Frost are looking to reunite much of the original cast, with maiman Kyle MacLachlan back as FBI agent Dale Cooper. The report also claims that the new series will be set in the present day and Lynch will direct every episode. 

Twin Peaks originally ran in 1989 and lasted for 30 episodes over two series before it was cancelled by network ABC. The show followed the travails of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, who is sent to the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington to investigate the murder of high school student, Laura Palmer. 

The show had a large cast, which included the likes of Lara Flynn Boyle, Michael Ontkean, Danna Ashbrook, Richard Beymer, Heather Graham, Ray Wise and Joan Chen. 

In the years since its cancellation the show has earned a huge cult following, with a number of special editions of the series released on DVD. The most recent Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, was released earlier this year.
