“Twin Peaks” fans rejoice! This time it is for real! After a lot of back-and-forth on the popular 90s series’/ comeback, we are getting closer to the actual premiere date.

Talks of production or actually bringing it back kept coming to a halt but now, the mystery series is slated to debut on Showtime in 2017 with the freshly announced cast. Actors who are making a come back from the original cast include the very popular “log lady” Catherine Coulson, David Duchovny, Sheryl Lee, Mädchen Amick, Michael Horse, Ray Wise, Dana Ashbrook, Miguel Ferrer, Sherilyn Fenn, Grace Zabriskie, Everett McGill, Peggy Lipton as well as creator David Lynch.

De la Reguera shared the exciting news on social media, with a photo captioned: “Official Cast list revealed! #twinpeaks #davidlynch / Quien es fan de Twin Peaks? La lista completa la revelaron hoy!”

The original series is considered by many as one of the most influential shows of all time. “An idiosyncratic FBI agent investigates the murder of a young woman in the even more idiosyncratic town of Twin Peaks,” is how they summarized it. But now, co-creator Mark Frost says, “It is not a remake. The story continues. The seeds of where we go were planted where we've been.” In addition, Frost is set to write a book titled “The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks,” which will help bridge the stories together. “This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of ‘Twin Peaks’ to life, for old fans and new,” Frost said.

Lynch, who is set to co-write and direct every episode, said he plans to film most of the series in the form of a movie, and will then cut it up into episodes.
