Given that this show is debuting at 2am so it goes out at the same time both here and the USA, you’ll need to keep yourself awake with a damn good cup of coffee.

The original Twin Peaks that aired back in the early 1990s became one of the biggest cult TV shows ever, and one of the most bizarre. David Lynch’s crime drama is still haunting, from the twisted visions, Angelo Badalamenti’s classic title music, and of course, backwards-talking dwarves played forwards.

Little has been revealed of the actual plot. What we do know is that Kyle MacLachlan returns as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper – complete with his love coffee, cherry pie, and possibly with his cassette recorder for his messages to “Diane”.

Twin Peaks: The Return begins with a double-bill on Sky Atlantic at 02.00. Repeated on Tuesday at 21.00. The next two episodes will be available immediately on demand.
