Kyle MacLachlan returns as Dale Cooper to Twin Peaks on Showtime in 2016

In another “twin tweet“, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost today confirmed what Kyle MacLachlan suggested a few months ago: the return of Dale Cooper —or maybe just his doppelgänger?— in the new series of Twin Peaks coming to Showtime next year. David Lynch’s tweet was accompanied by a brand new photo of the actor holding a cup of presumably damn good coffee.

“I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of ‘Twin Peaks. May the forest be with you.

This is the first official confirmation of the 2016 cast, but a handful of original cast members have already publicly announced their involvement, including Sheryl Lee, Dana Ashbrook and Catherine E. Coulson.

UPDATE: According to reports, the Twin Peaks theme suddenly started playing as Kyle MacLachlan —holding a coffee mug— joined Showtime boss David Nevins on stage at the TCA event. “You look like you need a damn fine cup of coffee,” the actor said in character. “He’ll be leading the show, and there’ll be more cast coming on as we roll through,” David announced. He later revealed that production on Twin Peaks will begin midway through this year at multiple locations, likely including the series’ original Pacific Northwest home.

Stay tuned for more!

  2. Lukas says:

    Welcome back……. R..

  3. Rolf says:

    I’m just glad he’s not bald now.

    • Chris says:

      He’s looking good, remarkably similar to the “25 years later” red room dream. Next up we need Badalamenti confirmed to do the music…

      • Amy says:

        I agree – definitely hope he does the music.

      • ROLF says:

        Most of the cast have aged well, actually, bar a couple of obvious exceptions. It’s almost as if they knew this was going to happen, so they’ve kept themselves well preserved over the years…

  4. Amy says:

    I’d like to see Sherilyn Fenn confirmed so badly!

    And I am so hoping Lara Flynn Boyle isn’t back. Moira Kelly was a much better Donna and more in keeping with the Donna featured in Laura’s secret diary.

    What can I say – I’m dying for an Audrey and Cooper romance..still, after all these years!

  5. The Log says:

    This news is great! I hope there will be a return of all the sheriffs department crew as well as FBI crew – including DAVID BOWIE! Dr. Jacoby, Norma, Ed – just about everyone really.

  6. Wait…you mean it wasn’t confirmed until now!?

    GOD DAMN that would have filled my pants with nails..
