So, we’re down to the final five days of the A-Z challenge and although it’s been an interesting month of randomly unplanned posts, there is one thing I haven’t manage to squeeze in and today I have an excuse.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to go on about it, I’ve already done that at some length in the past, but I can’t not mention the impending return of Twin Peaks, the greatest tv show of all time, bar none.
And yesterday we got further details of David Lynch‘s rebooted soap noir;
– Filming has been completed.
– Probable release date is very early 2017.
– UK release will be on Sky Atlantic, as they have exclusive rights to all original Showtime output (bad news for those of us without satellite tv)
– The cast list has been released, confirming a large number of original members are going to be back amongst the pines.
So, for those of you who are interested, here are those returning heroes in full:
Richard Beymer – Ben Horne
Catherine E Coulson – The Log Lady (scenes filmed before she sadly passed away last year)
Julee Cruise – Roadhouse Singer
Jan D’Arcy – Sylvia Horne
David Duchovny – Denise/Dennis Bryson
Sherilyn Fenn – Audrey Horne
Miguel Ferrer – Albert Rosenfield
Warren Frost – Doctor William Hayward
Harry Goaz – Deputy Andy Brennan
Andrea Hays – Heidi
Gary Hershberger – Mike Nelson
Michael Horse – Deputy Tommy ‘Hawk’ Hill
David Patrick Kelly – Jerry Horne
Sheryl Lee – Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson
Peggy Lipton – Norma Jennings
Bellina Martin Logan – Louie ‘Birdsong’ Budway
David Lynch – GORDON COLE
Kyle MacLachlan – Special Agent Dale Cooper

Al Strobel – Philip Gerard/ ‘Mike’ The One-Armed Man
Carel Struycken – The Giant
Russ Tamblyn – Dr Lawrence Jacoby
Ray Wise – Leland Palmer
Alicia Witt – Gersten Hayward
Grace Zabriskie – Sarah Palmer
You’ll have to make your own minds up as to how some of these characters are being
resurrected included in the plot, but it’s a good sign that the main body of the cast is still involved.
– More casting details have also been released, featuring a good many high profile surprises.
What do you reckon Lynch is going to do with the likes of;
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Ok, Laura Dern is a Lynch veteran, but Eddie Vedder and Trent Reznor? Really?
And then there’s this; Emre Unayli‘s amazing new artwork.
So yes, I think it’s safe to say that I’m VERY excited at the prospect of going back into the woods with FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper and friends.
Here’s the trailer…
…which, of course, tells you nothing whatsoever.
But then, I’d expect nothing less.
Roll on 2017.

And if that hasn’t put you in the mood, here’s a Road House favourite from Julee Cruise, the lovely Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart.
