David Lynch’s cult TV series Twin Peaks is back after 26 years.
The return of Twin Peaks was greeted with both praise and bafflement by critics, one of whom called it “familiarly inscrutable”.
Kyle MacLachlan reprises his role as FBI agent Dale Cooper in the 18-episode series, which began its run on May 21 on Showtime.
The first two episodes saw Kyle MacLachlan’s character still trapped in the mysterious “black lodge” where the original series left him in 1991.
Other characters to return included Laura Palmer, whose murder was the basis of the original show, and <<The Log Lady>>, played by the late Catherine Coulson.
Future episodes, all directed by David Lynch himself, will see Michael Cera, Laura Dern and Naomi Watts join the cast.
Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan was among those to welcome Twin Peaks’ return on Twitter, praising David Lynch for “outLynching the bejesus” out of his celebrated creation.
