The Lynch mob.


The long-awaited new season of cult TV show Twin Peaks arrives in less than a month, and a new promo has arrived alongside a confirmed date for the season finale. The teaser showcases some of the iconic locations in the mystery-shrouded town--check it out below:

The new season is set to premiere with a two-part episode on Sunday, May 21 at 9 PM. Showtime subscribers will be able to watch the next two episodes immediately afterwards on the network's streaming service.

The following week, Episodes 3 and 4 will air on Showtime, before settling into a single episode a week until the two-part finale in September. This will air from 8-10 PM on Sunday, September 3.

The show's co-creator, David Lynch, has directed all 18 of the new episodes, and much of the original cast are returning, including Kyle McLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Everett McGill, Madchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, and Peggy Lipton. Some of the cast were revealed in new images back in February--check them out here.

Several teasers for the new season have been released over the past few months. A recent one compiled the many moments the characters have enjoyed coffee, while another showed co-creator David Lynch, in character as Gordon Cole, snacking on a donut. In addition, we saw composer Angelo Badalamenti performing the show's haunting music, plus a look at some on-set footage.

Twin Peaks originally ran from 1990-91 on ABC, followed by a prequel film, Fire Walk With Me, in 1992.
