Twin Peaks


We've (maybe) got good news!

Something might be happening with the wonderfully weird 1990 TV show Twin Peaks, and it's got Twitter (and our hearts) all a-flutter.

On Friday, creators David Lynch and Mark Frost tweeted the exact same cryptic message at the exact same time, and as Twin Peaks fans will remember, "when two separate events occur simultaneously pertaining to the same object in inquiry, we must always pay strict attention." 

"Dear Twitter Friends," the tweets read, "That gum you like is going to come back in style. #damngoodcoffee"

The hashtag is obvious: FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) said it constantly in reference to his morning beverage (which he takes black).

"That gum you like" is in reference to this clip, which, even more than 20 years later, we still can't really explain: 

Twin Peaks, which told the strange story of a strange town and the murder of a teenage girl, ran for two seasons, from 1990 to 1991 on ABC. It featured odd dance numbers, dream sequences filmed backwards but played forwards, and a town full of seedy weirdos who ate a lot of pie and drank a lot of coffee.

Talks of a reboot or continuation have been happening for years since the series ended with (decades-old spoiler alert!) the revelation that Cooper had been overtaken by a demon named BOB. The finale also featured the ghost of Laura Palmer saying she would see us again in 25 years, which just happens to be right around the corner.

Star Ray Wise didn't do anything to quell any rumors when he was interviewed by Examiner in January. "If anything was done," he said, "it would be 25 years later." Hmm…

We have no idea where this will lead us, but we have a feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.
