Michael Ontkean NOT Returning To TWIN PEAKS, Robert Forster To Take On Sheriff Role!

Seriously a downer for Twin Peaks fans!  Michael Ontkean, who portrayed the beloved role of Sheriff Harry S. Truman, has opted not to retun for the revival of the iconic eerie soap to air on Showtime.

TV Line which broke the news said a source close to Ontkean related, “Michael is fully retired from show business, and has been for many years.”

It appears though that the top law enforcer will now be played by Robert Forster, who has replaced Ontkean, although it’s unclear whether Forster will be playing Truman or a new sheriff character.

The casting of Forster also comes with Twin Peaks folklore! Apparently co-creator David Lynch originally thought of the actor for the role of Truman in the initial run of the ABC drama which first aired in 1990!

Currently, Twin Peaks is in production and fans are awating anxiously to find out if it will make it to air sometime in 2016, or not till 2017.

So, are you disappointed to hear Michael Onktkean is not returning?  What do you think about Robert Forster presumably joining the cast as a sort of recast?  Comment below!

If Ontkean won’t come back they shouldn’t recast the character.

Very disappointed to hear this — was hoping Sheriff Truman and Josie Packard might have some sort of reunion despite her fate the last time we saw her…

Bummer. Loved Michael Ontkean. Haven’t seen him in years but would love to. Still, Robert Forester is a fine actor, from Rochester, NY and is perfect for a David Lynch show. Great catch! Perfect.

He should be a new character. Therefore, there won’t be any comparisons. It’s understandable that after 26 years, there would be a new sheriff.

I agree!! Just hire a new Sheriff.

Sad to hear this. I just hope they didn’t recast the role. Because in a “25 years later” scenario there is absolutely no reason to recast any role. The fact that the guy who was the sheriff in town 25 years ago is no longer there is absolutely nothing that even has to explained. Why not just give Michael Horse’s character or that other guy the job? They both were from the area and it would only make sense for them to stay and to be promoted eventually.
