The fictional town of Twin Peaks is still haunted by the death of Laura Palmer. All these years later, as Showtime is preparing to unleash the 18-part revival series, her face emerges in the first of two new Twin Peaks posters.

Kyle MacLachlan returns as Special Agent Dale Cooper, whose face lurks around the first key art of the revival, premiering in May. The character initially came to Twin Peaks to investigate Palmer’s mysterious death. We’ll soon pick up 25 years after the incident when Cooper returns.

David Lynch, in addition to reprising his donut-gobbling Gordon Cole, directs the episodes, which he also wrote and produced with Mark Frost. “I see it as a film. A film in parts is what people will experience,” Lynch said during a press conference. “It was a joyful, fantastic trip with this great crew and cast.… This word ‘expect’ is a magical word. People expect things, and their expectations are met when they hopefully see the thing.”


The revival features an immense stable of actors, from the returning David Duchovny and Peggy Lipton to fresh faces like Laura Dern and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
