Twin Peaks will make its return with creators David Lynch and Mark Frost on premium cable channel Showtime in 2016, the network said on October 6.

The murder mystery television series drew audiences and critical praise in the 1990s.

Twin Peaks, which ran for two seasons on the ABC network in 1990 and 1991, was centred on an FBI agent investigating the murder of a homecoming queen in the small fictional town of Twin Peaks.

“The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you,” David Lynch and Mark Frost said in a statement.

David Lynch will direct all nine episodes and also write and produce the new series with Mark Frost.

The new limited series will be set in present day and will tackle “long-awaited answers,” CBS Corp-owned Showtime said in a statement.

It will go into production in 2015 but it is not known if the original cast will return.
