Twin Peaks was a major hit in the early 1990s. The 2017 remake is about to air soon. Will you be watching?
If you don’t know already, Twin Peaks is a story about murder in a small town. The town, many of the characters, and the murder itself tend to be rather creepy. It’s thoroughly entertaining, but you’ll be glad that you don’t have to live in such a place.
The original series ran for only two seasons, but it’s become a cult classic. And that’s exactly why we’ve ended up with a 2017 remake. We’re sure this series will be just as popular as the original.
4 Reasons to Be Excited for the New Twin Peaks Series
The original Twin Peaks series finale ended with Laura Palmer—the girl who was murdered—coming to FBI agent Dale Cooper and telling him she would see him in twenty-five years. Here we are twenty-five years later and the series is back! Why are we so excited about the new series?
1. It Is a Series, not a Movie
Sometimes creators will decide to make a movie based on a television series. While this can be fun, it’s kind of like a tease. We get to see beloved characters for only a fraction of time. With a television series, though, we get to watch them week after week after week. This allows for way more character and plot development than a two hour film could ever produce.
2. They’re Bringing Back Some Beloved Characters
Kyle McLaughlin will definitely be back as Agent Cooper. Others include:
- Everett McGill as Ed Hurley
- Harry Dean Stanton as Carl Rodd
- Grace Zabriskie as Laura Palmer’s mom Sarah
- Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer
- David Lynch (creator of the series) as Gordon Cole.
3. We’re Curious About Cooper & BOB
The series finale of Twin Peaks ended with a bleeding Agent Cooper laughing dementedly and repeatedly asking, “How’s Annie?” After Cooper smashed his head into the bathroom mirror, it was revealed that he was overtaken by the spirit of evil murderer BOB. The question we want answered is: Has Cooper/BOB been on the rampage for the past twenty-five years?
4. There Are 216 Actors on the Cast List
That’s right – multiple actors and musicians have signed up to be a part of the new Twin Peaks. Each week we will get to see some of the famed faces of Hollywood, including Jim Belushi, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ashley Judd, Naomi Watts, Trent Reznor, Eddie Vedder, and Amanda Seyfried.
