The long-awaited "Twin Peaks" revival doesn't air until May 21 on Showtime, but in the meantime we're being teasedwith 30-second promos that don't really do much more than that.
A 32-second spot released in January showed us present-day Dale Cooper (without revealing anything about his, er, mental state) and panned over nature shots of Pacific Northwest fog and forest for ambience.
Today, two new teasers dropped. The first, below, opens with the final, chilling shot of the "Twin Peaks" Season 2 finale (major spoiler, do not watch if you haven't seen it yet) followed by the iconic line "It is happening again?" Does that imply that Coop 25-years-later is still touched? Or does it simply mean that the cycle continues with a new set of victims?
In the second video, we see the classic image of Laura Palmer's body as it's being unwrapped from its plastic sheath, followed by a zoom-in on her high school yearbook picture, this time taped up on a wall. And...Nothing is Illuminated.
Or could it be that...wait for it...these teasers are not what they seem?!
We won't know anything until May 21, and it's likely that Season 3 will leave us with more mysteries than answers, as is the Lynchian way.
In the meantime, on March 1 Showtime is airing Lynch's "Twin Peaks" prequel film"Fire Walk with Me,"which sheds light on the world of Laura Palmer, pre-murder. And of course, Seasons 1 and 2 of the show are available to stream on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Sweet dreams! That hopefully don't involve any red velvet curtains or slow-talking midgets.
