Great news today out of the TCA (Television Critics Association) session today with Showtime.  The network’s president, David Nevins announced that the revival of the soapy cult classic Twin Peaks from David Lynch will debut on May 21 at 9PM with a two-hour season premiere.  And as an extra perk, immediately after the premiere, episodes 3 and 4 will also be made available through Showtime’s digital platform.

In addition, the series will contain 18 episodes. “It will be 18 unforgettable hours,” Nevins related to the press.  He also said he has viewed all the episodes at a private screening set up by Lynch complete with donuts!

After watching, Nevins called the new installment “the pure-heroin version of David Lynch.” and adds it “rewards close watching,”

As for if there would be more Twin Peaks after this season, it does not appear so.  Nevis added, the show is “designed to be close-ended, one-time event.”

As for the story in the revival, Nevins only would say, “It’s about Agent Dale Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) odyssey to Twin Peaks.”   Series star Kyle MacLachlan will be joined by many returning stars from the original ABC version in the early 90’s, plus several new faces as well.

So, excited to hear of the premiere date and the episode-order from Showtime for Twin Peaks? Comment below!

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
