The First New Footage of Twin Peaks' Revival Is Here (and It's Eerie)


The First New Footage of Twin Peaks' Revival Is Here (and It's Eerie)

Welcome back to the town of Twin Peaks, 25 years later.

Showtime’s highly anticipated revival of Twin Peaks is set to premiere in less than a month on Sunday, May 21, and the network has finally given fans its first glimpse of new footage. The good news? New footage! The bad news? We don’t get to see any characters, new or old. 

In a teaser, titled “The Town of Twin Peaks,” new shots of the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Department, the Double R Diner, Fat Trout trailer park, all locations familiar to fans of the original ABC series, can be seen. Oh, and we also get a shot of the Palmer house. 

Twin Peaks‘ return will be 18-episodes, written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, with Lynch directing all 18 outings. Some of the original cast set to return? Kyle MacLachlan, Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, David Duchovny, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, and Ray Wise, among others. New cast members include Amanda Seyfried, Laura Dern and Michael Cera.

Not much is known about the revival, and Lynch wasn’t offering up much info when he appeared at the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour. “This word expect is a magical word and people expect things and their expectations are met hopefully when they see the thing,” he said when asked if fans of the original series could expect the same look and feel from the new episodes. 

But judging from the teaser above, and the show’s Twitter account, “something old is new again.” 

Twin Peaks premieres Sunday, May 21 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.

Celeb Couples Who Troll Each Other on Social Media: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Help Bring the Cuteness

You know what they say, couples who troll together…

Blake Lively and Ryan ReynoldsChrissy Teigen and John Legend and Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are among a list of celebrity couples who know that laughter is an essential part of a healthy relationship. They often enjoy pranking and messing with their better halves on social media—and probably in real life, although they keep most of that private. And in most cases, one partner is definitely the bigger troll.

Here are some of their funniest gags:

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds: Earlier this week, the two attended the 2017 Time 100 Gala, where Legend performed. Lively posted on Instagram a photo of Reynolds blocking a view of the singer onstage, writing, “Congratulations to the most influential person in my life. The best man I know… you deserve this @time 100 honor … If only my husband wasn’t blocking you in this shot. I’m so sorry @johnlegend.”

Last August, the actor trolled his wife on Twitter.

“Just want to wish Billy Ray Cyrus the most special, magical birthday ever. I love you with all my heart. Also, Happy Birthday to my wife,” he tweeted.

Reynolds, known for his acerbic sense of humor, likes to troll Lively off-screen too, and in a big way.

While she was giving birth to their daughter James in 2014, he played Marvin Gaye‘s ‘Let’s Get It On.”

It was like steak knives came out of her eyes,” the actor said on Late Night With Seth Meyers in 2016. “Like, ‘Are you f–king s–tting me right now?’ Real bad, yeah. But she was a mercenary. I think I just caught her right in the middle of a contraction.”

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend: An ongoing joke among fans is that Legend looks like the children’s book character Arthur and many memes have sprung as a result. Teigen has joined in the fun herself.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt: Earlier this month, the actress live-tweeted her day leading up to her husband’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere in Los Angeles. This also meant following the actor around and documenting his every move.

“Now it’s getting real. Chris may be annoyed. 403pm,” she tweeted, alongside a photo of her taking a photo of a shirtless Pratt standing in front of a bathroom mirror with doodles scribbled on it.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade: During his team the Chicago Bulls’ game against the Boston Celtics in January, he missed a dunk and got stuffed by the rim. Union took some opportunity to throw some shade on Twitter.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake: Last October, the singer posted a selfie while in a voting booth in Tennessee, which is illegal in the state.

He did not get into legal trouble. However, Biel took to Instagram to poke fun at her husband’s mistake, sharing goofy selfies with an “I Voted” sticker on her face.
