Twin Peaks 2017: Cast, trailer, UK release date and how to watch

The Twin Peaks 2017 reboot is nearly here, so here’s everything you need to know about the season 3 revival, including the Twin Peaks: The Return air date, cast, trailers, and how to watch in the UK.

What is Twin Peaks: The Return? Your guide to the Twin Peaks 2017 reboot

The original Twin Peaks was a serial crime drama that aired way back in 1990. Despite being cancelled after just two seasons, Twin Peaks managed to obtain cult status, and is widely regarded as one of the best TV shows ever made.

The story followed an FBI investigation into the murder of a high school girl in the small mountain town of Twin Peaks in Washington State.

The show’s original creators – Mark Frost and David Lynch – are now behind a major reboot called Twin Peaks: The Return, which is set to air in 2017. The full storyline for season 3 hasn’t been revealed, but given the high number of returning cast members, we’re expecting the show to follow on from the original plot – albeit at some point in the narrative’s distant future.

Here’s the official synopsis from Sky: “Twenty-five years ago, a quaint northwestern town was turned upside down when the body of homecoming queen Laura Palmer was found, launching an unforgettable murder investigation. Now, the mystery returns.”
