What a nice way to round out the year!
Showtime announced earlier today that viewers will be able to watch Twin Peaks starting on December 26th. There is a small catch; you must be subscribed to the streaming service Showtime on Demand. However, you will be able to watch every single episode of Twin Peaks’ original run to gear up for the 2017 revival.
Twin Peaks originally aired from 1990 to 1991, until an upsetting cancellation after its second season. The series was a cult hit with its unique noir tone and eccentricities in writing and acting, and became one of the series at the forefront of the reboot movement. The upcoming Twin Peaks premiere will pick up twenty-five years after the iconic death of Laura Palmer, homecoming queen and general darling. The series brings back both onscreen and offscreen talent, helmed by David Lynch and Mark Frost, while still retaining many members of the original cast.
On top of that, Showtime is also putting the 1986 film Blue Velvet on the streaming service as well. As Peaks fans may know, Blue Velvet is the Lynch-directed film that stars Kyle MacLachlan, Dennis Hopper, Isabella Rossellini, and Laura Dern. While it predates the ’90s series, it is credited as being the unofficial inspiration for Twin Peaks.
