The town of Twin Peaks is almost ready to welcome viewers back into its weird and wonderful world.
Showtime this week finally announced a premiere date of May 21 for the first of 18 episodes. The network followed that news up with a short and shrouded teaser video showcasing Agent Dale Cooper, played by returning star Kyle MacLachlan.
Showtime shared the footage on social media on Friday along with the message: "FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper...25 years, 7 months, and 3 days later." It features the iconic "Twin Peaks" theme music along with dark images of trees, what appears to be a dirt road into a forest, and Cooper stepping forward with a very serious expression on his face. It wraps up with the town's welcome sign.
Showtime is taking a very measured approach to promoting the continuation of the series. We may not get a traditional trailer for the David Lynch-helmed show. We know who's in the cast and that there will be a lot of returning characters, but other details are scarce.
At least we've learned one thing: Cooper still likes his dark suits.
