Twin Peaks, the surreal and now cultishly beloved drama that ran for two kooky seasons on ABC way back in the early '90s, is being resurrected by Showtime. It joins an ever-growing list of shows that died too early and were subsequently brought back to life, a list that includes cult faves like Arrested Development and HBO's The Comeback. Since its initial run in 1990-1991, the supernatural/mystery drama has become a phenomenon, inspiring rabid fandom and obsession over every inscrutable twist and turn. On Monday, Peaks creator David Lynch announced via Twitter that the show will be returning in a nine-episode limited series. The new iteration will be set in present day, decades after the investigation into Laura Palmer's murder in the weirdest small town ever. The best part? Original creators Lynch and Mark Frost are behind the whole thing, which will run sometime in 2016. That's the year the show turns 25. We'll pause to allow you to contemplate your mortality. Lynch and Frost will write the episodes and Lynch is set to direct every single one. It's pretty much the most ideal scenario ever for Peaks fanatics. (If you're not yet one, it's your lucky day: You can watch the entire thing on Netflix.) A cast hasn't been confirmed, but we're crossing our fingers star Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper is involved. Also hoping that, maybe, Lynch and Frost can answer some of those lingering questions we've had for the past 20 years. -Michelle Stark, Times staff writer

Corey Stoll is getting married

Peter Russo is alive and well and, in fact, engaged. Corey Stoll of House of Cards fame is set to wed actor girlfriend Nadia Bowers, Us Weekly reports. "Corey and Nadia are such a great couple, she's an amazing support to him," a source tells Us. "Wasn't shocked when I heard they had gotten engaged. Everyone is super happy for them." The Homeland actor has had quite a busy couple of years, first landing the role of Russo on HOC, then going on to play large parts in Homeland and FX's The Strain. What's more, the This Is Where I Leave You star will also star as Yellowjacket in Marvel's Ant-Man. So yeah, good luck getting him involved in wedding planning. - Lydia Harvey, Times staff writer
