The season 3 debut of "Twin Peaks" is just a few weeks away, but new footage from the long-awaited continuation of the series has been hard to come by. On Thursday, Showtime teased hungry fans with a peek at some of the show's most popular characters as they appear 25 years after the events of the original.
The short teaser re-introduces Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill), Carl Rodd (Harry Dean Stanton), Sarah Palmer (Grace Zabriskie), Deputy Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz), Deputy Tommy "Hawk" Hill (Michael Horse) and FBI Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). It's worth noting that Stanton appeared in the "Twin Peaks" tie-in movie "Fire Walk with Me" and not in the original television series.
Each brief clip shows a seemingly mundane moment. Big Ed sits at a desk. Sarah Palmer pushes a shopping cart down the liquor aisle at a grocery store. Andy still sports the same up-swept haircut. There's no attempt to hide the passage of time. Their faces are worn and worried and the footage has an ominous feel.
"Twin Peaks," with director David Lynch at the helm, returns on Showtime on May 21. With little to go on as far as teasers or trailers, we'll likely have to wait until then for the town's secrets to start revealing themselves.
