2016 will see the return of one of the most iconic TV shows ever, as the bizarre town of Twin Peaks will be once again home to some strange goings on.

Last Friday, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost teased fans with simultaneous cryptic tweets quoting the show that set Twitter alight with rumours and speculation about either a reboot or a third series, but today all that has ended, and in the best possible way for fans.

The reason being that there is an official video announcing that the show is back, complete with a shot of Laura Palmer and the unforgettable theme music that we all know and love.

The clip was uploaded on the official YouTube page of Showtime, so it doesn't take Agent Cooper-like detective work to figure out that it will be broadcast on that channel when it returns in 2016.

There aren't a huge number of details available, but it seems that Lynch and Frost will come together early next year to shoot a new, 9-episode season,  according to WelcomeToTwinPeaks.com. The same site says they are trying to get as many of the original cast back as they can, and although the owl is probably long dead at this stage, it seems that Kyle MacLachlan is definitely on board as Special Agent Dale Cooper. They also state that Angelo Badalamenti (composer) and Emmy Award-winning editor Duwayne Dunham are also keen to be involved again.
