At the semi-annual Television Critics Association meeting in Pasadena, California, Kyle MacLachlan revealed Monday that he will star in the new “Twin Peaks” limited series for Showtime — working with the iconic show’s original creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost.

As the actor showed up during the Showtime presentation carrying a cup of coffee, he quipped, “I’m very excited to return to the strange and wonderful world of ‘Twin Peaks.’ May the forest be with you.”

The nine-episode series will go into production later this year, with plans to premiere it in 2016, marking the 25th anniversary of the end of original series’ run on ABC. Lynch and Frost are writing and producing all nine episodes, with Lynch directing all of them.

The new “Twin Peaks” will be set in the present. It will continue to delve into the quirky storylines of the original program. Following the official presentation, Showtime’s head honcho David Nevins said, “I expect a lot of people from the original cast will be back,” but he declined to name names.
