(I don't know the answer, though.)

Sky are already including Twin Peaks in their "coming 2017" promos, and they have a deal in place with Showtime for their content so luckily we've known for some time it was going to be shown here in the UK.

Hopefully they'll do a Game of Thrones style airing where it's as close as possible to the US broadcast time. It was a pain avoiding Westworld spoilers, and that was only a couple of days after the US transmission.

Completely agree. I know it would have only barely missed the 25 year gap had this released this fall so it wouldn't have been a huge deal but it's so nice they squeezed it in the "see you again in 25 years" window

Ah, that's good then!

Also, there seems to be rumblings on Twitter of a trailer incoming? No one seems to know when, though.

Updated OP with some plot details, S3 is primarily about "Cooper's odyssey back to Twin Peaks" apparently.

Explains all the desert/Nevada locations from shooting

Maybe Twin Peaks is like the island from Lost.

It's going to take some doing to get back to.

Yep, I'm really interested to see how they tackle his battle with Bob and eventual "escape".

Also, some light spoilers for new season: we know he gets involved with the mob out in the desert, some set photos of him with James Belushi and Robert Knepper, the new Castigliani bros?

Easily my most hyped thing happening this year. I've been quietly buzzing about Twin Peaks since New Years Day. This is the year.

Twin Peaks left a special and lasting impression on my 18 year old mind when it first aired. In someway like television itself, it formed and shaped me through all these intervening years.

I cannot wait, it is happening again.

Loving all the thumbs up gifs, thanks everyone. My five year old son and I thumbs up each other all the time. In quite a specific way. He learnt it from me, and I just realized where I learnt it. Heh.

Love this show. Will be rewatching it all again before before the new season.

I'm just happy that David Lynch and Mark Frost got to make it the way they wanted. Even if doesn't live up to the hype for me - I will still be happy, because it is what they wanted. Saying that though, it's gonna special anyway, ain't it.

That's actual a good reminder that I still need to watch the second season. I really liked the first one - the whimsical and almost mythical atmosphere of this microcosm was really great, but for some reason (despite the cliffhanger in the season finale) I never had the urge to watch the second season right away and for some reason it disappeared from my radar.

Fire Walk with me was some sort of prequel right?

Well...there's good reason to not compare the two. I mean, Lynch wouldn't be doing this if he wasn't excited about it or didn't have the proper freedom. And he has never compromised himself yet in his career. X Files, on the other hand, didn't have a genius and a vision behind it like Lynch, just a TV runner who hit a homer.

Have you heard about the second season? It legendarily flies off the train tracks due to Lynch leaving the show. You may be okay just watching the first couple episodes and the finale.

I actually didn't know that - seems like I haven't missed much then. Will probably still look into it to be somewhat prepared for season 3.

Absolutely. Experiencing it is entirely different than hearing about it. Especially the Lynch directed ones. There's only about 3 poor episodes. With some scattered crap in the latter episodes. Finale is pure gold.

Yes. There's a lot of brilliant in season two. It does sag a bit in second third of the season, but it comes right back to awesome by the end.

This is so true. A lot of the best scenes and episodes are in season 2. But at the same time from begging to end it isn't nearly as consistent in quality as season 1 and season 2 has the worst stuff in the series as well.

Yeah no doubt those episodes from 10-16 (and i'd go as far to say the wyndam earl stuff stank too, so all the way to the finale) are a blight on the show when watching the whole thing, but it doesn't diminish what came before - or that excellent finale.
