New Twin Peaks Teaser from Showtime


Showtime has released a new Twin Peaks teaser featuring prolific composer Angelo Badalamenti and his Grammy Award-winning theme music from the original series – one of the most distinctive ever created for television. Badalamenti will return as composer for the new series, which will premiere on Showtime in 2017, on-air, on demand and over the internet.

On Saturday, October 1st, subscribers can catch the Twin Peaks teaser during the Dexter marathon, celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the original Showtime series.

Badalamenti has written some of the most unique film scores of our time. He is widely known for his long-standing collaboration with Twin Peaks director David Lynch, which has produced a creative and inspired body of work. In addition to receiving the Grammy Award for the theme music of the original series, the “Soundtrack Album from Twin Peaks” achieved gold status in 25 countries. Badalamenti has also received three Emmy Award nominations for the original series, as well as Golden Globe nominations for films The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.

One of the most groundbreaking and influential television series of all time, the new Showtime series picks up twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The new Twin Peaks is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch.

Significant names, both returning and new to the series, include Monica Bellucci, Michael Cera, Richard Chamberlain, David Duchovny, Sky Ferreira, Robert Forster, Ernie Hudson, David Patrick Kelly, David Koechner, Jane Levy, Matthew Lillard, Bérénice Marlohe, Derek Mears, Sara Paxton, Max Perlich, Trent Reznor, Tim Roth, John Savage, Harry Dean Stanton, Ethan Suplee, Russ Tamblyn, Eddie Vedder and Alicia Witt.

Lynch himself will also reportedly be reprising his own role from the original series, returning as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole, along with a cameo from Warren Frost as Dr. Will Hayward.
