This weekend we posted the speculation from some intriguing tweets from the series creators, that an announcement could be forthcoming of a revival of the 1990-1991 soapy, eerie and twisted series, Twin Peaks!

The drama from creators David Lynch and Mark Frost that originally aired on ABC is getting new life 25 years after the original, but this time as a limited run series on Showtime! According to Deadline.com, “The nine-episode series will go into production in 2015 for a premiere in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of when the series finished its run on ABC.  In a fact that will delight Twin Peaks devotees, Lynch and Frost will write and produce all nine episodes, with Lynch set to direct every episode.”

The new Twin Peaks will be set in the present day, more than two decades after the events in the first two seasons.  It will continue the lore and story of the original series, with Lynch and Frost committed to providing long-awaited answers and, hopefully, a satisfying conclusion to the series.

As far as if the original cast members would be back?  Deadline revealed; “It is unclear which actors from the original series will be featured in the followup. Rumor is that Kyle MacLachlan would be back, likely reprising his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper who was at the center of the show.”

I didn’t watch TP and don’t have Showtime so I guess it doesn’t matter for me. Good luck to them though.

There should be a mixture of veterans (Piper Laurie, Sherilyn Fenn, Peggy Lipton, Billy Zane) and newcomers. Hopefully we’ll finally get to find out what happened after that last cliffhanger- did Audrey Horne survive the bank explosion?

I hope this marks a trend and in twenty five years the creators of Lost will bring it back and finally explained to me what the heck was that island really about. They explained the parallel lives time line as being the characters who died stuck in limbo waiting to more on to who knows where, but they never explained the island, the time travel stuff, why the corporation was on the island, and the like. But wouldn’t it be ironic that when those characters walked into the light they just ended back on the island again–LOL

As for Twin Peaks I don’t which or if any cable station in Canada will air it– I guess I will catch it when it come out on DVD. And since television has mature in content in the last twenty five years I imagine they will make the show even more bizarre and gruesome than the first time.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.

She starred on NBC’s Chicago P.D. and now Sophia Bush heads back to the network in a recurring role in the back half of the fourth season of This Is Us, which returns this Tuesday night on January 14th.

Series creator Dan Fogelman revealed that Bush’s character will be involved in Kevin’s (Justin Hartley() storyline, but would not confirm or deny whether she is the mother of his child in the future timeline, while speaking with reporters following the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Other bets have that the bio-mo, could turn out to be Cassidy played in the first half of the fourth season by  Jennifer Morrison.  Cassidy had slept with Kevin, during the break-up of her marriage.

In addition,  Pamela Adlon (Better Things) will now have a recurring role as part of Randall’s  (Sterling K. Brown) upcoming and intense storyline.  From what Fogelman related to the press, it looks like Randall will struggle with mental health issues and Adlon will have a critical but limited run in the story.
