Today, Showtime announced a filming start date for its 2017-targeted Twin Peaks reboot. Beginning in September 2015, Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Agent Cooper with David Lynch directing the script by Lynch and Mark Frost. Other casting announcements are pending, but most original cast members are believed to return.
This announcement is a step in the right direction after months of “will they or won’t they” drama regarding budget, casting, and Lynch’s official participation. The reboot was originally target to air in 2016, but due to the numerous production delays, the new season of Twin Peaks is unlikely to air until 2017.
