Agent Cooper is back in action.

Showtime released a new teaser on Friday for the hotly-anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival, and the 30-second video features the first glimpse of Kyle McLachlan’s character.

Though there’s no dialogue in the new trailer, the iconic “Twin Peaks” music leads the viewer back into the sleepy TV town. Then, MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper appears and then the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign is shown.

“Twin Peaks” returns on May 21 at 9 p.m. with a two-hour premiere episode. The full limited event series will be 18 hours.

The new “Twin Peaks” — which is based  off the cult-favorite series that ran two seasons in 1990 and 1991 — hails from original creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. Lynch directed the entire 18-hour series, which picks up 25 years after the people of Twin Peaks were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.

Earlier this week at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Showtime execs described the new “Twin Peaks” as the “pure heroin” version of Lynch’s original show. At the event, Lynch also spoke to reporters about the revival series. Click here to see what he teased.

    I am also very excited about this and bracing myself for possible disappointment. There is a lot of pressure here to recreate a special strange magic.

    Based on, you cannot base something off something.

    Can’t wait. That music is all I need to get ready for this. It makes quirky look like nothing. I loved this really bizarre, strange series. Does it make sense to me? Not really, but I love it anyway!! Hope this extension of the stories is a good one.

    Was just hoping you would correct the typo at the beginning of this article. “Showtime released a new teaser on Friday for the hotly-anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival, and the 30-second video features the first glimpse of Kyle McLachlan’s character.” MacLachlan not McLachlan
