Twin Peaks is a town with a reputation for death and otherworldly events. But sometimes, not even death can keep away a few familiar faces.
Original “Twin Peaks” stars Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook have posted a video announcing that they will both be returning for Showtime’s nine part “Twin Peaks” miniseries. Lee played Laura Palmer, the teenager whose murder sparked the events of “Twin Peaks.” Lee also portrayed Laura’s cousin, Maddy, who was also murdered. Even after her death, Laura Palmer appeared in the mysterious Black Lodge.
Ashbrook played Bobby Briggs, Laura’s boyfriend at the time of her death. And in the video below, Ashbrook and Lee tease the possibility that Sherilyn Fenn may reprise her role as Audrey Horne.
Earlier this week at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Showtime revealed that Kyle MacLachlan will be returning as Special Agent Dale Cooper. The latest announcement brings the total of confirmed original series cast members to three, with more likely to follow.
David Lynch and Mark Frost are writing the nine episode “Twin Peaks” miniseries, with Lynch slated to direct them as well.
