"Who killed Laura Palmer?"

One of the best TV shows in the past twenty five years is returning to our screens as Showtime announced that the awesomeness called "Twin Peaks" is returning:

"Twin Peaks" is back! After rumors and teasing, Showtime announced that the cult classic will return in 2016 for nine new episodes. The network released a cryptic "special 'TWIN PEAKS' announcement" on YouTube to confirm the news. The airing of new "Twin Peaks" episodes will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the show's two-year run on ABC.

Showtime said in a statement that co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost will write all of the episodes and Lynch will direct every episode. Per Showtime, "'Twin Peaks' will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers for the series' passionate fan base." Rumors also claim that Kyle McLachlan will be back to reprise his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, but Showtime told HuffPost Entertainment that no casting has been confirmed at this time.

At the time, David Lynch's show was like nothing before it and Lynch's off the wall wizardry captured the country's imagination. There was a gruesome murder, an assassinated myna bird, a one armed man, damned good coffee, a man from another place, ingenues, creeps, Killer Bob, great music and a whole lot more.

I don't know about you, but If you're smart, you'll binge watch the series before the new one begins.
