Created by cinematic auteur David Lynch and Mark Frost, the show followed FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) who is dispatched to the isolated town of Twin Peaks to investigate the death of teenager Laura Palmer. To say he finds more than he bargained for is a bit of an understatement.

Following a perfect first season, Peaks suffered a significant drop in quality during its sophomore series, thanks to pressure by US network ABC for Lynch and Frost to wrap up the show’s central mystery and unveil Laura Palmer’s killer just eight episodes into a 22-episode run.

And then, after changing the TV landscape, Twin Peaks disappeared. After two years of Black Lodges, silent giants and evil demons, it shone too bright, too fast to keep up with the culture that it had already started to shape and shift.

It would take 25 years for Peaks to return to our screens, but when it did…well…what a return. 

From beginning to end, the third series of Twin Peaks is as confounding and confusing as it is brave and singular. It picks up 25 years after the events of the second season but is at the same time a completely new story. Eschewing a new murder mystery, the main plot of the new run of episodes concerns Agent Cooper’s efforts to make his way back to Twin Peaks after being trapped in the Black Lodge by his demonic doppelganger. (...)

As a work of art, it is confusing, difficult and absolutely beyond categorisation. As I’ve said, it’s not an easy watch and not everyone will appreciate it. But if you do appreciate TV as an art form, Twin Peaks: The Return is absolutely essential viewing because it shows just what the medium of TV can achieve when it pairs an all-star cast at the top of its powers with writing so singular it seems to define (several) dimensions.
