Along with the familiar faces, the new “Twin Peaks” will feature a lengthy list of new cast members.

Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” is based on the cult-favorite series that ran for two seasons in 1990 and 1991. The reboot hails from original creators David Lynch and Mark Frost with Lynch directing all 18 hours. The limited event series picks up 25 years after the people of Twin Peaks were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.

“Twin Peaks” will be an 18-hour event series, kicking off with a two-hour premiere on May 21 at 9 p.m.
