One of the key players who made Twin Peaks a classic is reportedly coming back for the upcoming revival.
Angelo Badalamenti, who composed the show's music in 1990-91, is expected to return for the new season, according to a new TVLine report. The report claims that multiple sources are confirming this news.
Showtime, which will air the revival season, has not officially confirmed the news yet.
Badalementi's musical contribution to the show is such that it's hard to imagine the quirky series without it. The melancholic yet hopeful opening theme set the tone for the show every week and some of his other compositions, like "Laura Palmer's Theme", helped bring the world of Twin Peaks to life.
The composer won a Grammy Award for the theme song in 1990. He has gone on to collaborate with Twin Peaks co-creator and director David Lynch on a number of the latter's film projects, including Wild at Heart, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive
As for the status of the upcoming Twin Peaks revival, production will be starting in September, with a yet-to-be-confirmed episode release date. The original air date been announced for 2016 but fellow co-creator Mark Frost recently revealed that it might be pushed to 2017.
Kyle MacLachlan is the only actor from the original series who has officially been confirmed as returning by Showtime. But the network has announced that many of the show's original stars will be back. MacLachlan is returning to play Special Agent Dale Cooper.
