The way we consume T.V. has changed over the years (remember life before "binge-watching"?), but back in the 90's there was one show ahead of its time. Before Netflix, Amazon Prime, DVR—before Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, and Breaking Bad—there was the cult-classic Twin Peaks. The eerie, dark story created by David Lynch and Mark Forest stars Kyle MacLachlan (expected to reprise the role) as Dale Cooper, an FBI agent who comes to the quaint northwestern town of Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of a homecoming queen named Laura Palmer. The fans of the show will be rewarded in 2016,when the show returns to Showtime for 9 episodes written and produced by Lynch and Forest (all the episodes will also be directed by Lynch). Not up to speed? Don't fret: Showtime will rebroadcast the 30 original episodes in advance of the new season.

The twisted show had killer fashions, from the sweater sets, plaid skirts and burgandy-red lipstick, we can't wait to see what the characters will look like 25 years later.

Last week we got a tease from the two creators, both tweeting the same copy:

Agent Cooper frequently used the phrase "damn good coffee."

Today the we got the confirmation:

The president of Showtime, David Nevins, said in a statement, “To quote Agent Cooper, ‘I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.’”

Lynch and Frost added: "The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We're very excited. May the forest be with you."

Go pour yourself a cup of good coffee, grab a cherry-pie and watch the Showtime promo below.
