Showtime today announce the premiere date for the highly anticipated, new Twin Peaks. The 18-hour limited event series will debut with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Amanda Seyfried is reportedly joining the cast of Twin Peaks, in what’s described as a major role. Details are few at the moment, but Seyfried will reportedly be playing a “pivotal new character.” It is expected that she will appear in multiple episodes of the new season.
Last month, word broke that cult director and “Twin Peaks” co-creator David Lynch was bowing out of the revival series that was set to air on Showtime citing issues with negotiations. Tonight, Lynch has revealed that the revival is back on and he will in fact be back for the series.
Director David Lynch has confirmed he will not direct the sequel to Twin Peaks, citing disagreement over money. Writing on Twitter, Lynch said he had not been given enough money “to do the script in the way I felt it needed to be done”.
