After being in the air for over two years, with one major postponement, we finally have a premiere date for the new Twin Peaks!

At Showtime’s Executive Session during the 2017 TCA Winter Press Tour, CEO David Nevins revealed that the new series will debut Sunday, May 21st at 9 PM ET/PT.

The two-hour premiere will kick off 18 hours of what Nevins described as “the pure heroin version of David Lynch,” with the 3rd and 4th hour immediately available to Showtime subscribers after it airs.

We’re excited to announce the premiere date for the highly anticipated, new TWIN PEAKS. The 18-hour limited event series will debut with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Immediately following the premiere, SHOWTIME subscribers will have access to the third and fourth hours, exclusively across the SHOWTIME streaming service, SHOWTIME ANYTIME and SHOWTIME ON DEMAND. In its second week, TWIN PEAKS will air the third and fourth hours back-to-back on the linear network, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by one-hour episodes in subsequent weeks.

    My life is complete now. Thanks David Lynch, Mark Frost, the whole cast and crew. Not to forget the genius Angelo Badalamenti.

  2. Sarah says:

    Thank you, Waldo the bird. RIP

  3. Chris says:

    Anyone heard anything about times for the UK?

  4. Zoltrax says:

    Do they already have a premiere date for brazilian tv?

  5. Laura says:

    Pretty please with sugar on top let it be not to far behind for us in the UK!!

  6. Rob B. says:

    To quote the poet Homer: “WOOHOO!” 🙂

    Now, is there any information on how one can watch this without Showtime? Will I be able to purchase seasons to stream on Amazon?

  7. Chuck says:

    Since Showtime is a premium service, you need to wait several months after the final episode if you don’t subscribe. Only basic cable shows such as on FX or AMC can be purchased during a season. The ways to subcribe to Showtime without cable or satellite are the standalone streaming service or as an add on to services such as Amazon. Showtime as an add on to Amazon costs around $9 per month.

    • Rob B. says:

      Bummer. 🙁 Thanks, Chuck! What about subscribing through a service like Roku?

  8. Gozu says:

    Like a few others above I’m interested when the UK airing will be on Sky Atlantic, surely it can’t be long after the US date? Fingers crossed Sky Atlantic, make it the smallest gap possible between air dates compared to the US! If anyone find out please post 🙂

  9. Mark says:

    There is a simulcast on Sky Atlantic in the UK, 2am UK time in the morning of May 22nd, repeated in the evening at 9pm.

    • Rob B. says:

      2 am? To quote our Very Special Agent: “We’re going to need more coffee.” 🙂

    • Gozu says:

      Thanks Mark I just saw that news too and popped back to update the thread but you beat me to it. Great news about the simulcast! 🙂

  10. LandlordTom says:

    Wow, Bob, wow! Four hours on the first night will be incredible. Thank you, Showtime, Mssrs. Lynch and Frost, and God. Until May 21 you can find me in the shadows.

  11. tedstrutz says:

    I hope I live long enough.
