That show you like is going to come back in style. After much speculation, yesterday David Lynch unveiled the entire 217-member cast for his long-awaited rebooted Twin Peaks series.

With filming completed on the upcoming revival, this announcement marks the first major piece of information for fans of the cult series to pore over, and they will be pleased to hear that a whole host of original cast members are set to return to the rural town for season three. Kyle MacLachlan will (of course) reprise his leading role as Special Agent Dale Cooper and will be joined by Sheryl Lee, who played the town’s doomed beauty queen, Laura Palmer, Sherilyn Fenn, who played rebellious schoolgirl Audrey Horne, Peggy Lipton, who played Diner owner Norma Jennings and Miguel Ferrer, who played FBI agent Albert Rosenfeld and the much-loved “log lady” Catherine Coulson (who sadly passed away last year).

These original Twin Peaks citizens will be joined by an exciting line-up of newcomers. Hollywood A-listers such as Michael Cera, Monica Bellucci, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jim Belushi, Tim Roth, Ashley Judd, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts are all included in the line-up alongside musicians Trent Reznor, Eddie Vedder, Sky Ferreira, Sharon Van Etten.

In what capacity these names will appear is anyone’s guess, and knowing David Lynch and Mark Strong you can be sure to expect the unexpected – and some damn good coffee along the way.

Twin Peaks is set to return in 2017.
