Well, at least we are getting more clarity!  Tuesday at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Showtime’s CEO David Nevins revealed that the cult classic revival of Twin Peaks is set to have its TV premiere sometime in early 2017.  Previously, the delivery of the quirky nighttime soap was slated for “sometime in 2017” on the cable network.

Nevins revealed to reporters: “I’m excited to share that David Lynch (Creator, Twin Peaks) is more than halfway through shooting schedule, and it will premiere in the first half of 2017.”

Twin Peaks, which originally aired for two seasons beginning in 1990, focused on Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) investigating the murder of Laura Palmer.

In addition, to the news of an early 2017 premiere date, TV Line revealed on Monday that none other than Laura Dern has joined the revival cast.  While no word on who Dern will play, a theory has surfaced that she might take on the role of Cooper’s never-before-seen-secreatary Diane!  Fans of the motion pictues of David Lynch know that Dern is one of his actresses, having appeared in Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and Inland Empire.

So excited! Loving all the casting I’ve read about so far – glad that they are adding a bunch of interesting new characters in addition to the usual suspects. Laura Dern will fit right in. She was phenomenal in Inland Empire (a criminally underrated film). Hoping very much that Grace Zabriskie will reprise her role as Mrs. Palmer. She was also in Inland Empire along with Laura Dern, playing a very haunting character.

How to Get Away With Murder To End After Its Upcoming Sixth Season

ABC has announced that Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), and those cagey law students of hers, will receive some closure and exciting endings as How to Get Away with Murder will come to a conclusion after its season six. The upcoming 15-episode final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 10 PM.

Series creator Peter Nowalk said in a statement released today: “Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here.  For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending.  Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years. I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”

The final season will follow the perils of Professor Annalise Keating’s class through their final semester in law school with much deceit and murder going along with it!

Karey Burke, President, ABC Entertainment. said in a statement on the conclusion of the series: “Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating.  I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC.”

How to Get Away with Murder burst on to primetime TV screens back in 2014, and helped formed the Shondaland programming block along with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The final season stars Davis along with the current cast comprised of: Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry,, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil Conrad Ricamora, former ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ star Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
