'Twin Peaks' Reboot News: Series Returns In 2016 For Third Season On Showtime, David Lynch Directing All Nine Episodes [VIDEO]

It's official: cult classic TV series Twin Peaks is returning for a third season on Showtime in 2016, a full 25 years after it left the airwaves.

Showtime released a video Monday morning with footage of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) snapping her fingers followed by the announcement that the series would return in 2016 on Showtime, along with the show's haunting theme music.

The series will have a limited run with nine episodes, all of which will be written by Mark Frost and David Lynch and directed by Lynch, according to a new TVLine report.

Twin Peaks was cancelled by ABC in 1991 after just two seasons on the air. While the fanbase at the time weakened significantly over the course of the series, the show has since experienced a renaissance. The series is currently streaming in full on Netflix, where it is continuing to receive new viewers and fans alongside older fans who are revisiting the cult hit.

The quirky drama centers on a fictional small town in Washington called Twin Peaks where events "both wonderful and strange" go down on a regular basis. The first arc of the series centered on FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle McLachlan) entering town to help solve the murder of Laura Palmer, a very popular high school girl.

From there, Cooper (and by extension, the audience) met the various townsfolk that comprise Twin Peaks, including the very eccentric Sherriff's Department, a woman in an eye-patch obsessed with silent drape-runners and the ever-popular Log Lady.

While Twin Peaks will return in 2016, a specific air date has not yet been announced by Showtime.
