A reunion between Dale Cooper and Audrey Horne?
David Lynch didn’t let that happen in Twin Peaks: The Return… but Spooky Empire has pulled it off!
Florida’s premier horror convention dubbed “the dark side of Comic Con” has invited 13 cast members —the dreamiest Twin Peaks line-up in years— for a weekend full of meet-and-greets, autographs, Q&As, and photo opportunities at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, on October 21-23, 2022.
Kyle MacLachlan and Sherilyn Fenn are joined by Mädchen Amick, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Harry Goaz, Carel Struycken, Dana Ashbrook, Kimmy Robertson, Robyn Lively, Giselle Damier, Andrea Watrouse, and Amy Shiels (you know, Sandie, Mandie & Candie). That’s a whole damn town!
Ethan Suplee, who briefly appeared as a friend of Dougie Jones in Twin Peaks: The Return, will also be at the convention though not as part of the Twin Peaks crew.
On Sunday, a special cast Q+A will feature Kyle MacLachlan, Mädchen Amick, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Sherilyn Fenn, Harry Goaz, Carel Struycken, Dana Ashbrook, Kimmy Robertson, and Robyn Lively. Robyn Lively will also have a solo Q&A separately.
Special group photo opportunities include combinations such as Ray Wise & Sheryl Lee, Kyle MacLachlan & Sherilyn Fenn, Kyle MacLachlan & Sheryl Lee, Harry Goaz & Kimmy Robertson, or a whopping 10 cast members all at once. Here’s the complete photo op schedule:
On top of that, Spooky Empire has teamed up with artist Chelsea Lowe for a gorgeous full-color silk-screened poster which will be limited to 100 copies and available only at the event.

Another TP thing they don’t ask Michael Horse to be a part of. Sure this is cool, but it’s shameful no one ever invites Horse to be a part of these.
Horse came all the way to Perth West Australia with a small group of TP legends including Laura Palmer herself, for a panel discussion and Q&A. Maybe he just doesn’t love doing these things, but thought a trip to Australia wasn’t too bad ? He was great. Insightful and humble, much like his character.
I follow Michael Horse on Instagram and he has complained about repeatedly being passed over. Not even receiving an invitation. This is about white people doing white people things, unfortunately.
I have always felt sorry for Pieter Dom, the actors, and Lynch’s puppet mastery over everyone. https://youtu.be/6xvtTc8Zhdo
No Deputy Hawk? I mean, if I were him I wouldn’t lay a toe in Florida either but it’s getting impossible to excuse the obvious racial reasons that Mr Horse has once again been excluded.
He is currently on a long-distance road trip in a camper-van with his wife, according to hus website. Not everyone enjoys horror conventions, and he may be one of them. I am another of them.
His explicitly said on his Instagram that he is hurt and disappointed that he wasn’t even asked to be a part of this.
I’ve been promoting this all day on Twitter, then I find out it’s in Florida! I guess I thought something this epic would also be occurring In LA too. Then I thought, how could all the actors be in two places at once?? Unless they do a “tour” type thing, but if they did, it certainly wouldn’t be during Halloween. So what’s the point lol Have fun everyone! ???? ? ???
Sorry, the unrecognized characters at the end (“?”) were cool TP relevant emojis, which were a slice of pie, a cup of “damn good” coffee….
…..and, of course, a log ¯?\?(???????)?/?¯
Leaving Michael Horse out again is unacceptable.
Why the east coast lately, no filming sites there. Why not invite all Twin Peaks actors? Not going to Florida for this….doesn’t even make any sense.
Why not invite Michael Horse onto the panel? He was a key cast member. It’s time these reunions give him his due for being a big part in this incredible series. Fix it.
Missing: Michael Horse. What’s up with that?
Where’s Deputy Hawk? Shame on you
I’d love to be at this event. However Michael Horse will be missed. Is there any reason to leave him out of this event ? That’s not acceptable…
Nothing at all against Robin Lively, but it is bizarre that she was invited and not him.
Until these events and other actors speak up to invite Michael Horse, I’m done spending money on anything Twin Peaks. I’ve been a fan since it first aired. When the only indigenous person is not invited again and it get, it shows this is nothing but a whites only club. The character Horse played, Deputy Hawk, was always a top character who was always a positive force. Twin Peaks wpuld not be TP without him.
Where is Michael Horse? His character is central to so many plot lines in the original TP, and essential to The Return. Why was he not invited?
Where the fuck is hawk?
