Some things never change in Twin Peaks, apparently! Same population as 25 years ago, same theme music, the iconic Twin Peaks sign, and some evil lurking in the final seconds of this just released promo from Showtime!  The cable network is teasing its 2017 offering of the revival of the quirky ABC soapy series that is currently in production.

Back is Michael Hoarse as Deputy Hawk!  In this teaser, Hoarse relates to the camera: “Location sometimes becomes a character.  There are a lot of holy places up here… sacred places.   It touches something in the psyche. It’s almost like being in a moving painting.”   Next after the Twin Peaks sign is unveiled, there is someone hazy in the video where the music changes to eerie.  Is it Leland Palmer/Killer BOB (Ray Wise) or could it be David Lynch himself?

The official promo states below it on You Tube:  “The critically-acclaimed, ground breaking television phenomenon Twin Peaks returns as a limited series to Showtime in 2017. Currently in production, Twin Peaks is written and produced by series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by David Lynch. While the full mystery awaits, fans can expect many familiar faces, including Golden Globe winner and EmmyAward nominee Kyle MacLachlan, who reprises his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper.

Widely considered one of the most groundbreaking and influential broadcast series of all time, Twin Peaks followed the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town who were stunned after their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. The town’s sheriff welcomed the help of FBI agent Dale Cooper, who came to town to investigate the case. As Cooper conducted his search for Laura’s killer, the town’s secrets were gradually exposed. The mystery that ensued set off an eerie chain of events that plunged the inhabitants of Twin Peaks into a darker examination of their very existence. Twenty-five years later, the story continues…”

If it’s Lynch, why would his character at the FBI be the guy at the end. It makes no sense. It could only be Leland. Wise was credited as a cast member at the end of the series after leaving after the conclusion of the Laura Palmer story. I am sure that 25 years later as stated in the finale, they would answer what Laura meant by “I will see you in 25 years.”

I think it’s Leland Palmer.

Never saw Twin Peaks when it originally aired. So I’m in the midst of watching the video that I got from the library. Wanted to be prepared for when the revival airs. Weird story, and Ray Wise at his best, strange self.

Oh, you are in for a real treat then, Rose! I remember relishing each and every episode of that outre’ odyssey into the inexplicable….the show was all the rage at school, and we would tape each episode and watch it over and over again in order to make any sort of sense of that inspired insanity. (That never happened….my advice is to just take it all in and enjoy the raucous ride into the ridiculous…forget about figuring it out!) Considering the show’s components of cutting-edge cinematography, colorful characters, stunning scenery, not to mention that haunting, mysterious soundtrack, this series is a veritable feast for the senses….I get nostalgic simply speaking of it!!!! Whatta trip into the abyss it was……

EP Ken Corday Shares Favorite All-Time DAYS Storyline Is Marlena’s Possession

While in Australia, Ken Corday, the executive producer of Days of our Lives, sat down for an interviews segment on 9Now’s Today Extra to talk about the rich history and enduring success of the long-running NBC daytime drama series, which is about to celebrate yet another anniversary in just a few short weeks on November 8th.

During the conversation, Ken was asked about his all-time favorite storyline, or if he had a frontrunner within the wealth of twist, turns, romances, adventure, and drama that has been part of the town of Salem for over five and a half decades.  Corday expressed that he did have a frontrunner … and that is was Marlena being possessed by the devil from the mid-90’s.

Ken told the Today Extra hosts: ‘When we took Deidre Hall, the lovely Marlena Evans, and had her possessed by the devil. It was right out of The Exorcist!’

The EP also admitted at first he was reticent to tell the story:  “I first said, ‘No, you’re mad this will never work!’ But we did it for a few weeks, and the story was meant to play out and then end at Christmas, but it ended up going on until Easter.”

That plot came from the mind of the late soap scribe, James Reilly, and had gone through many twists from when John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was a priest in one of that character’s many incarnations, and at the time, it was John who has to perform that exorcism on the woman he loved, after Stefano (the late Joe Mascolo) left Marlena vulnerable for demonic forces to enter her body.

There was the bed levitating, the yellow eyes, and more, along with Deidre Hall’s great performance, that made this one of the more spectacular soap opera tales ever told on daytime.   In fact, over the weekend, Hall commented on Corday’s choice tweeting:  “Couldn’t have said it better myself!!”

So, would you vote for Marlena’s possession as your top all-time Days story .. or do you have another pick that you think ranks at the top? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
