Twin Peaks is an American mystery drama TV series that first began airing on April 8, 1990.

Despite the fact that it only ran for two short seasons, it still made an impression on viewers who continue to reference it to this day.

Kyle Maclachlan, Mädchen Amick, Sherilyn Fenn, Jenifer Jason Leigh, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, and other members of the original cast were said to return. This limited series premiered on May 21, 2017, and featured 18 episodes.
