Showtime to bring back 'Twin Peaks' as new series
NEW YORK - Showtime is returning to the weird world of "Twin Peaks" in a new series a quarter-century after the original version rocked viewers with its strangeness.
Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will be back to write and produce the limited series.
Showtime announced it will go into production next year and will air in 2016. Lynch will direct all nine episodes.
Originally aired on ABC in 1990-91, it eerily posed the question, "Who killed Laura Palmer?" It was set in the quirky Pacific Northwest town of Twin Peaks, where the slain girl had lived.
Showtime said the revived "Twin Peaks" will be set in the present-day and will provide long-awaited answers for the series' fan base.
No cast members were announced.
