Showtime releases complete cast list for 'Twin Peaks' revival

April 25, 2016, 12:36 pm

Principal photography has wrapped on Showtime’s revival of the ’90s cult TV show “Twin Peaks,” and to commemorate, the cable network has released a complete cast list for the upcoming season featuring over 217 names.

As might be expected in a list that contains hundreds of individuals, there’s a lot to anticipate with David Lynch’s return to "Twin Peaks" and a lot of new faces to accompany the show’s returning stars.

While Kyle MacLachlan has been set to return as Special Agent Dale Cooper, he’ll also be joined by Laura and Leland Palmer, played by Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise, respectively, and impressively, given that both characters are dead.

Veterans returning to populate “Twin Peaks” include Russ Tamblyn, Sherilynn Fenn, David Duchovny and Mädchen Amick.

Grace Zabriskie and Harry Dean Stanton are also set to return and the pair will be joined by Amanda Seyfried, making this season the weirdest “Big Love” reunion ever.

Other newcomers include musicians Trent Reznor, Eddie Vedder and Sharon Van Etten, who will hopefully be portraying the world’s most depressing dive bar house band, as well as Ethan Suplee, Matthew Lillard, Brett Gelman and Jim Belushi giving the series a shockingly high “average joe comedic actor” average.

The cast will also include two Lynch veterans, with Laura Dern, who starred in three of the director’s films, “Blue Velvet,” “Wild at Heart” and “Inland Empire”; and Balthazar Getty, who appeared in Lynch’s “Lost Highway.”

"Twin Peaks" is scheduled to air in 2017.
