Ever since it was confirmed that Twin Peaks would be returning for a brand new series, fans of the show have been speculating as to which old characters would be making a return for this latest run…
Well, the first of them has been officially confirmed, with Kyle MacLachlan on board to reprise his role as FBI agent Dale Cooper.
The news was announced by none other than David Lynch himself, who tweeted an image of MacLachlan in costume, accompanied by the caption, “Welcome back to #TwinPeaks Special Agent Dale Cooper!”

The new series is scheduled to arrive in 2016, marking the 25th anniversary of the show, and will be set in the same unnerving mountain community, with events taking place in the present day.
No further plot details have been confirmed at this stage, although with more returning characters likely to be announced in due course, we should be able to start piecing together some ideas over the coming weeks.
