Those who recall the campy, eerie, and mysterious ABC primetime soap, Twin Peaks can’t wait for the revival of the series coming from creators David Lynch and Mark Frost to Showtime!

Major casting news out of TV Line has that motion picture and TV star Amanda Seyfried (Ex-ATWT) has signed on to play a brand new role in the cult classic reboot!

The role is being kept under wraps and tight-lipped from the producers, but Seyfried will appear in multiple episodes of the series.  Filming is currently underway in Washington state.  The modern day version of Twin Peaks will feature star Kyle MacLachlan resurrecting his role as Agent Cooper, plus many familiar characters and faces from the 90’s version.

Seyfried’s other TV roles besides As the World Turns where she played Lucy Montgomery have included: Big Love, Veronica Mars, Wildfire, and a small stint on All My Children. Amanda’s film roles have included: Mama Mia!, Les Miserables, Ted 2, and many more.

Originally slated for a 2017 premiere, there is hope that Twin Peaks could be ready for a 2016 debut.

As long as Mark Frost and David Lynch are in charge it’s going to awesome.

As for her role, I’m wondering if Laura Palmer had a secret baby before she murdered…

I missed the original Twin Peaks, so I’m getting the video from my local library to be prepped for the new revival. Sounds really intriguing, plus it also has one of my favorites in it…Ray Wise, who is currently playing evil villain, Ian, on Y&R.

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.
