The Twin Peaks revival is getting the Game Of Thrones treatment.
Sky Atlantic has announced that, just as they do for the HBO fantasy drama, they will be fast-tracking Twin Peaks and will offer a 2am simulcast with Showtime’s east coast feed on Monday May 22nd. The two-hour premiere episode will then be repeated later the following day (Tuesday May 23rd) in its regular 9pm time-slot.
Showtime’s Twin Peaks limited event series, which runs a total of eighteen hours, picks up twenty-five years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. David Lynch directed and devised the new episodes with co-creator Mark Frost. A large number of original cast members are on-board to reprise their roles, including Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.
