Kyle MacLachlan is returning to “Twin Peaks!”  The ABC series was a cult hit in the 1990’s and featured MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper. The actor made the announcement while at the Showtime’s winter TCA press tour presentation on Monday.

While Showtime president David Nevins was wrapping up on stage, MacLachlan walked on wearing his Agent Dale Cooper outfit. To make it more dramatic,  “Twin Peaks” theme music played. He then offered Nevins “a damn good cup of coffee.”

MacLachlan then said, “I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of Twin Peaks. May the forest be with you.”

In a past interview with Esquire, MacLachlan talked about his “Twin Peaks” character in the final episode.

“I think they had in their minds that he [Cooper] was going to be running around creating havoc for a while. But in terms of an arc and actually moving on from that, I wasn’t really sure. I think it was a great idea. I was looking forward to playing the anithesis of what I had created up to that point.”

Series co-creator David Lynch will helm all of the nine episodes. During the press conference Nevins didn’t offer any more information but that Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have been “very specific in promising closure, and that’s exciting.”

“From what I’ve seen, I think this going to live up to expectations—and then some,” Nevins added.

He admitted he “was kind of begging” Lynch and Frost to do the reboot at Showtime. Fortunately Lynch liked the “violent, weird” artwork in Nevin’s office which probably sealed the deal.

Nevins added, “And it felt like only way you could do it is to have David committing to directing all of them and that’s what I was begging for. [The reboot is] something they’ve been toying with. And for David, 25 years was the magic number, he pays attention to that numerology in a big way. There’s a reference in original, ‘I’ll see you in 25 years.’”

You will start seeing Kyle MacLachlan in “Twin Peaks” when Showtime starts airing it in 2016.
