Twin Peaks in 2016: Allowing for as Much False Expectation as Possible

The internet frenzy caused by the news of Twin Peaks being resuscitated after twenty-five years is only to be the beginning of the flurry of excitement and anticipation built up around a show that has received beyond legendary cult status.

While the details of the show’s plot are somewhat nebulous, what has already been ascertained for sure is that it will be taking place in the present day and Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is going to be a part of the project. Moreover, David Lynch will be directing every episode (after a long stint of trying to stay away from doing so in any capacity–film or otherwise) and, according to co-creator Mark Frost, “the passage of 25 years will be an important element in the plot.” Curiouser and curiouser indeed.
It's likely Laura will be in the mix of the continuation as well--'cause honestly what the fuck else is she doing?
