Twin Peaks Is Back

Now that's a good cup of coffee!  It only took 25 years, but David Lynch, the man you either love or hate but surely don't understand, is bringing Twin Peaks, his bizarre television masterpiece back to the small screen.

This is where weird things lived before the internet, kids.

As reported today in Deadline, a nine-episode, present-day sequel to Twin Peaks will premiere on Showtime in 2016, marking the 25th anniversary of the original series' ending. The original dream team is in charge: David Lynch will direct, and will co-write and produce with Mark Frost. It's rumored they're set to reunite with Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent and utter whackadoo Dale Cooper, and presumably any number of the other actors Lynch has continued to use throughout the years.

Yes, the absolutely bizarre innovator of primetime television is coming back, and fans the world over will most definitely find out just what the hell happened.  Even if it still is super weird.

Last Friday and again today at 11:30 a.m.—just the time Cooper was first getting into town, in the original show—both Lynch and Frost got all weird on Twitter about it, and before you knew it, it wasn't really clues anymore so much as straight-up informative marketing:

This is gonna be good.

Oh and if you haven't seen the original yet, you still have a year or so.  You've already had 25 so you better get cracking.
