The original Twin Peaks left viewers with a lot of questions, but here are some to help guide you through the upcoming revival on Showtime, courtesy of Laura Dern. The Big Little Lies actress may have a role in the 18-part limited series, but she won’t say which of these will be revealed and which ones will remain mysteries.

“What is the Black Lodge? Did Audrey survive the bomb at the bank? What about Pete and Andrew Packard? Is Ben Horne Donna’s father?” she began, trying to cram as many questions in 90 seconds. Dern also pointed to Leo Johnson and the tarantulas, Nadine Hurley’s amnesia, the fate of Annie Blackburn, and much more.

“Find out which questions are answered or totally unanswered when Twin Peaks returns this May on Showtime,” she teased.


Dern will appear alongside stars Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Madchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, James Marshall, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, Sheryl Lee, and many more. EW revealed the first look at the Twin Peaks revival in the latest issue, including exclusive photos and details.

Twin Peaks returns May 21 on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET.
