With just over two weeks to go until David Lynch’s iconic murder mystery returns to TV, Showtime is reintroducing fans to the familiar townsfolk of Twin Peaks in a new, chilling teaser trailer.
The network debuted the clip online on Thursday, offering brief glimpses of a handful of colorful characters that inhabited the series’ fictional mountain town during its original 30-episode run on ABC between 1990 and 1991.

The preview, set roughly 25 years after the murder of Laura Palmer, recalls the aesthetic of Twin Peaks‘ debut season, depicting a winding, rustic road illuminated only by the glow of a passing car’s headlights. It later cuts to a shot of Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) sitting pensively behind a desk, while subsequent scenes show Carl Rodd (Harry Dean Stanton) looking up as he sits on a park bench, Laura’s mother, Sarah (Grace Zabriskie), shopping in a liquor store, and dimwitted law enforcer Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz) curiously peering over his shoulder as an abandoned police car sits behind him.
The trailer closes with Deputy Tommy “Hawk” Hill (Michael Horse) nodding and saying “really” to someone (or something) offscreen, just before a quick image of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) flashes.
“I think it took me six hours and a few cups of coffee to read. But it was wonderful,” MacLachlan previously told EW of the 400-plus-page script, which revolves around Cooper’s journey back to Twin Peaks. Most of the OG players are back (Lynch, however, won’t confirm if they’re playing the characters they introduced on the TV series or not), with dozens more — including Naomi Watts, Laura Dern, Michael Cera, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sky Ferreira, and Tim Roth — joining them for a “feature film in 18 parts,” as Lynch has described it.
Twin Peaks‘ limited series revival airs its two-hour premiere episode Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime. Watch the new teaser above, and check out EW’s exclusive first look photos here.
