I have learned of another big name that has quietly joined Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s upcoming new installment of his groundbreaking 1990 supernatural mystery series. I hear Ashley Judd will be in the new season, slated for premiere on Showtime in early 2017.
Additionally, in addition to Lynch reprising his role from the original series as Gordon Cole and fellow co-creator/executive producer Mark Frost reportedly doing a cameo, I hear Frost’s dad, 90-year-old actor Warren Frost, who co-starred as Dr. Will Hayward on the ABC series, would return for a cameo.
New Twin Peaks cast additions also include Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Dern, Robert Knepper, James Belushi, Tom Sizemore, Balthazar Getty, Grant Goodeve, Larry Clarke and Caleb Landry Jones.
On the returning cast members front, star Kyle MacLachlan is reportedly being joined by Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Mädchen Amick, Michael Horse, Dana Ashbrook and Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Peggy Lipton and Everett McGill, among others. For more on who is coming back, read our story from earlier this week.
Judd plays Natalie in the Divergent movie franchise.
