'Twin Peaks' Day Brings Some Damn Fine New Posters From Showtime

Damian Holbrook

It is happening again. That's the message of the just-released key art from Showtime's Twin Peaks revival, and it's as ominous as it is exciting.

In honor of Twin Peaks Day—Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) entered the fictional town on Feb. 24 at 11:30am PT 27 years ago)—Showtime has unveiled two new posters featuring Cooper and the patron saint of plastic-wrapped prom queens, Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee).

Creator David Lynch, who directed all 18 parts of the limited series, told critics in January that the final days of Palmer's life will play a an important role in the return story. It all kicks off with a two-part premiere on Sunday, May 21, at 9/8c on Showtime, on demand and online. Immediately following the premiere, Showtime subscribers will have access to the third and fourth parts exclusively on Showtime Anytime and On Demand. Parts three and four will air back-to-back the following week at 9pm ET/PT, followed by single parts in subsequent weeks.

Fans can follow the show on Twitter at @Sho_TwinPeaks, although given the secrecy that has this show on lock, you're more likely to get spoilers from a log than online.
