The new Twin Peaks returns to the scene of the crime, a quaint Northwestern town, 25 years after the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer.

Showtime said principal photography on Twin Peaks, from executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost, has wrapped. The series' 2017 premiere date has yet to be announced.

Other newcomers include Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ashley Judd, Laura Dern, Ernie Hudson and Tom Sizemore.
