One of the things that makes David Lynch’s TV shows and movies work so well is the music, and the eclectic director will once again turn to the haunting melodies of award-winning composer Angelo Badalamenti with the upcoming “Twin Peaks” reboot, according to a report in TVLine.
Badalamenti has been working with Lynch since the 1986 film “Blue Velvet,” and won a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance on the “Twin Peaks” theme song.
The TVLine report suggests that not only is Badalamenti confirmed to return to “Twin Peaks” for the Showtime reboot, but that he is already hard at work on new music for the show.
Showtime didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The “Twin Peaks” reboot got off to a bit of a rocky start after David Lynch initially dropped out of the series due to budget concerns, but he’s since come back and is reportedly set to begin filming in September.
Once filming for the series is complete, it’s expected to debut on Showtime sometime in either 2016 or 2017, depending who you ask. Only the Log knows for sure.
Whether it’s 2016 or 2017, we’re looking forward to the return of Special Agent Dale Cooper, Sheriff Harry Truman and the rest of the wacky “Twin Peaks” residents. After a long 25 years, that show we like is finally going to come back and catch us up with some of our favorite characters over a damn fine cup of coffee and an incredible slice of cherry pie.
