New 'Twin Peaks' coming to Showtime in 2016

Twenty-five years after the original series, Special Agent Dale Cooper, Sheriff Truman and the rest of the "Twin Peaks" gang are coming back. The owls are still not what they seem.

In the final episode of the cult mystery series "Twin Peaks," the murdered Laura Palmer told Special Agent Dale Cooper that she "will see you again in 25 years." Since the series wrapped in June of 1991, many believed something special would happen in the year 2016, and it looks like the show's co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have indeed teamed with Showtime for a new "Twin Peaks" series set to debut that year.

As we reported Friday, Frost and Lynch both mysteriously tweeted the following message last week: "Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee." On Monday, Showtime posted the above video confirming that a new "Twin Peaks" is in the works to debut on the network.

The 2016 series will feature nine all new episodes co-written by Lynch and Frost and directed by Lynch. The series will be a continuation of events that occurred at the end of Season 2, and the passage of 25 years will prove an important element in the series plot, Lynch told Variety.

I have no idea where the new series will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

Update, 9:53 a.m. PT: To add the number of new episodes expected.
