The Twin Peaks revival, based off of the creepy, campy series that turned into a cult classic despite its two seasons, from 1990 to 1991, hails from original creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. Lynch directed every episode of the new Showtime series, which picks up 25 years after the townspeople of Twin Peaks were shocked when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was murdered.
Lynch made a surprise appearance at Monday’s Television Critics Association press tour, where he avoided sharing details about the new installment, but did open up returning to the series after 25 years.

Showtime’s Twin Peaks will debut with a two-part premiere on Sunday, May 21, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The full limited series will 18 hours.
