“Twin Peaks” season 3 is returning to the small screens almost after 26 years, and fans can’t wait for it. A lot of buzz has already surrounded the 2017 season of the show. For those who have not watched the previous two seasons or are already missing watching the show, US cable network Showtime is giving another chance for fans to relive the memories.

Showtime will air the previous episodes of the show on the channel on Sundays in the US. On Feb. 5, the channel will air back-to-back two episodes from the first season. The first two episodes, titled “Pilot” and “Traces to Nowhere” will be aired at 8 p.m. ET on SHO 2 in the US. Australian audience can watch the old seasons on Stan.

Apart from watching the first two seasons of the show, fans must also catch up with the “Twin Peaks” film that was released in 1992. The movie is titled “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.” The events that took place in the movie will reportedly be continued in “Twin Peaks” season 3. The story of the movie revolves around the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) as well as investigation into the murder of Teresa Banks (Pamela Gidley).

During the Television Critics Association press tour on Jan. 9, showrunner David Lynch recommended fans to watch the flick. He said that the last seven days of Laura Palmer’s death will form a part of the plot of the 2017 season. Hence, fans must watch the flick before watching season 3.

The original cast of the show will return in their respective roles. First glimpse of Kyle MacLachlan (FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper) from “Twin Peaks” season 3 has already been revealed by the makers. (Watch the sneak peak video below.)

Apart from him, other cast members returning in the 2017 season include Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horn), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson), Ray Wise (Leland Palmer), Madchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Miguel Ferrer (Albert Rosenfield), Phoebe Augustine (Ronette Pulaski), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) and David Duchovny (Denise Bryson). David Lynch will also return in the role of detective Gordon Cole. The script of the forthcoming season has been written by Lynch along with Mark Frost.

“Twin Peaks” season 3 will be aired on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET on May 21 in the US. The show will be streamed on Stan in Australia at the same time, which is at 1 p.m. on May 22.
