CULT 1990s TV show Twin Peaks is to return with a new series in 2016.

Creator David Lynch revealed the surprise news by tweeting a link to a teaser video along with the message: “Dear Twitter Friends… it is happening again.”

The drama explored the murky goings-on in a US town after the murder of a teenage beauty queen and starred Kyle MacLachlan as FBI agent Special Agent Dale Cooper, who was drawn into the murky world of the townsfolk.

Sheryl Lee played the doomed homecoming queen Laura Palmer in the series, which captivated viewers in 1990 and 1991.

According to Lynch, the third series will comprise nine episodes and will be broadcast on the Showtime network in the US in 2016.

A statement accompanying the YouTube video said: “The groundbreaking television phenomenon, Golden Globe and Peabody Award-winner Twin Peaks will return as a new limited series on Showtime in 2016.

“Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series.”
