According to Showtime president David Nevins, the long-awaited series revival will debut May 21 and feature a two-hour premiere.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association press event, Nevins said he’s seen all 18 episodes, and that it’s “the pure heroin version of David Lynch and I’m excited to put it out.”
He added that the series will be a “close-ended one-time event,” squashing any hopes that the new-millennium Twin Peaks will have a second season, and that it will require a close read.
Co-creator Lynch and members of the original cast were also in attendance at the TCA event. In a brief Q&A, Lynch remarked that he sees the series as a “film,” and that he and co-creator Mark Frost wrote the series via Skype.
