After months of fan frustration, Showtime has finally relented and issued a premiere date for their revival of the popular ’90s series, “Twin Peaks“. This limited series revival comes from original creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, with the duo directing and writing (respectively) all 18 episodes. All involved are stating definitively that this will not be an on-going revival, with the show’s return limited to these 18 new episodes alone. The “Twin Peaks” two-hour premiere is set for May 21st, after which the series will air one episode a week until completion.
In addition to their “Twin Peaks” announcement, Showtime has also renewed their dramatic series “The Affair” and greenlit Lean Waithe’s “The Chi” to series. The former will be returning for a fourth season sometime in the next year, with its third season ending later this month. “The Chi” is expected to arrive sometime in 2018.
“The Good Fight“, the upcoming follow-up series to CBS’ “The Good Wife“, has finally received a trailer. The sequel series will debut on CBS All Access, the network’s fledgling streaming service, on February 19th with a 10-episode first season. Christine Baranski reprises her popular role as Diane Lockhart as the series lead. She is joined by Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Erica Tazel, Justin Bartha, Gary Cole, Bernadette Peters, and Paul Guilfoyle. Numerous “Good Wife” stars are also expected to return in guest roles.
Lastly, Netflix has released two new promos for their upcoming Lemony Snicket television show, “A Series of Unfortunate Events“. The series will premiere this Friday, January 13th, on the popular streaming service. It stars Neal Patrick Harris, Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Joan Cusack, and the vocal talents of Patrick Warburton. This marks the second adaptation of the popular novel series, the first being a Jim Carrey film from a few years back. You can check out the new promo trailers below…
