Today Showtime released a brief teaser on their Twin Peaks Youtube channel, featuring composer Angelo Badalamenti on the piano playing the infamous “Laura Palmer” theme. Badalamenti will be composing the score for the entire revival series. He’s well known for his scores for “Mulholland Drive” and for other scores. He is a Grammy Award winner, and an Emmy and Golden Globe nominee.
For those of you, like me, who are not familiar with who Laura Palmer is, she was the town of Twin Peaks homecoming queen before she was brutally murdered. Her murder is the catalyst for the events that occurred in the original TV series. After this teaser, though, she may also heavily influence this revival series as well.
The new Showtime series picks up twenty five years after the murder of Laura Palmer. The series will be written by David Lynch and Mark Frost. Lynch will also be directing each episode of the series. Some of the original cast will be returning to reprise their roles in this revival, but there will be new faces as well.
No official dates have been set by Showtime for the premiere date. All we know is that it will definitely be premiering in 2017. I think they may be aiming for a Fall TV premiere, but that’s just me guessing.
